Curriculum

The aim of the curriculum at Oakdale Junior School is to provide pupils with a rich, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum, in line with the National Curriculum 2014.  We consider what we want the children to learn, why we are teaching it and carefully consider how we shall teach and assess it.  The right context focusing on skills, enquiry, research and knowledge, making use of a variety of approaches including using drama, film, computing, real-life experiences and outdoor learning to name a few, all contribute to providing opportunities to achieve outstanding learning, achievement and significant growth in pupils’ knowledge. The school focuses on promoting excellent attitudes to learning.

The vehicle that is used to teach these skills is left to the discretion of the year group to ensure that learning and teaching remains fresh, focused and inspiring.  National Curriculum 2014 provides the basis so that we ensure progression and coverage across the key stage.
