At Oasis Academy Long Cross children are with us from the age of 3 until they are 11. During those 8 years we make sure that they learn to read, write and communicate effectively as well as ensuring that they develop good mathematical skills. In addition to these core skills we want our children to be able to question the world around them and develop learning skills and enthusiasm enabling them to move forward confidently to adulthood. A key feature therefore of our curriculum is it is based on questions.
Our curriculum is specially tailored for 3 main phases:
- Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Nursery and Reception
- Key Stage 1 (KS1) - Year One and Year Two
- Key Stage 2 (SK2) - Divided into upper and lower (Year 3 to Year 6)
We also have a specially shaped curriculum for our Resource Base pupils, adapted from the EYFS and National Curriculum to provide for the academic and personal development of all our pupils in a holistic manner.
It is important to us that every child at Long Cross feels challenged and confident about what they are learning with us. We want our young people to reach Year 6 feeling fully equipped and ready to take on the next stage of their educational development, having reached their potential in their time with us.
