Oak's curricula

Oak's curricula cover all the national curriculum subjects across primary and secondary. Use our fully-sequenced units of lessons as high-quality models that represent great design from across the sector.

Our guiding curriculum principles summarise the important features of great curricula. They are: flexible, accessible, diverse, evidence informed, knowledge and vocabulary rich, sequenced and coherent

Our approach to curriculum

Every school’s approach to curriculum design is different. Whether you are starting from scratch or refreshing your existing curricula, it can be helpful to see examples to inspire your own. Explore our curriculum sequences and learn about the six curriculum principles that guide our lesson and curriculum design. See how we have:

  • Sequenced subject units across year groups, including alternative sequences
  • Built coherence through the curricula, using threads
  • Summarised the core content pupils will learn, in our curriculum statements
