What is Cornerstones Curriculum? – An overview for parents

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative approach to learning. It ensures that your children learn in the most creative way and become involved in what they are learning. Cornerstones is based on the Four Cornerstones of Learning: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. These Cornerstones provide a consistent philosophy for learning throughout school.

ENGAGE in learning through relevant and emotional experiences which are purposeful and stimulating. Learning takes place both in and out of the classroom.

DEVELOP knowledge, skills and understanding to underpin and make sense of the world around them.

INNOVATE using all their knowledge, skills, understanding and imagination through a challenging and structured provocation where children will work both independently, co-operatively and collaboratively.

EXPRESS the outcomes from their provocations in a variety of different forms using a range of different methods and media, and celebrate this work with the wider community.   Cornerstones Curriculum is delivered through a range of inspirational yet rigorous learning projects. These are based on themes and content from the National Curriculum, but bring learning together in new and exciting ways. Each project combines different strands of learning so that children learn more holistically and start to challenge themselves and learn problem solving skills as they create truly fantastic learning opportunities.
