Where to find Oak's curriculum plans and how to adapt them
Finding our curriculum plans
Our curriculum plans are an easy way to get an overview of our lessons, both by key stage and subject.
Explore our new interactive curriculum plans
If you are accessing our new resources for English, maths, history, and science from keys stages 1, 2, 3 & 4, and primary geography and secondary music, you can use our interactive curriculum plans for even more help with your planning.
Choose and subject, then a phase to view the curriculum plan you need.
Here you can:
- See an explainer of each curriculum, so you can understand the thinking, structure and focus behind the plan.
- View the full sequence, with breakdowns of prior knowledge needed for each unit and what comes next, all in one place.
- Search a thread within a plan so you can see common themes running through key stages in the subject.

Adapting our curriculum maps
Our fully sequenced curriculum plans for each subject provide inspiration and a springboard for annual, termly and weekly planning for every teacher in your school.
Each plan provides a curriculum rationale, an outline of all topic units available and how many lessons are in each. To help you, we’ve provided information on the pre-existing knowledge needed for any unit. There is also a suggested sequenced order of lessons, if that works for you - but you are of course free to use the units and lessons in any order that suits you.
Each unit, lesson and individual elements (such as slides and worksheets) have their own web link, so you can pick and choose which bits you want to access, download, edit and adapt.
Using the parts of our resources that work best for schools can help to free up extra time for teachers to focus on the bits of the curriculum that they want to personalise.
There could be times where you want to use our resources without any adaptations such as supporting absent pupils or setting cover. We recommend quickly mapping our resources against your existing curriculum so that you’re ready to go at short notice.
