Here at Oakdale Junior School we provide a creative curriculum.  With the National Curriculum introduced by the Government in 2014-2015, we worked hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils.  As part of this, we decided to implement the Cornerstones Curriculum as a basis for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for learners.

We have subsequently developed and adapted the curriculum to ensure it remains exciting and interesting, and continues to meet the needs of our pupils.
