Curriculum Overview

With the new National Curriculum being introduced by the Government we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. Last year we implemented the new Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children, which the children thoroughly enjoyed and we will continue to use this in the coming year. 

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the new 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our curriculum is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children's learning. Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to Cornerstones website:


There is a link below to show the timetable of the different topics each class will be covering this year and the curriculum area that they are focused on with all the other ( with the expectation of Maths which will be continued to be taught through Maths Makes Sense) curriculum areas taught as part of that topic.
