Here at Caldmore Primary Academy we provide a creative curriculum based around the ‘Cornerstones Curriculum.’

Cornerstones is a nationally recognised approach which delivers outstanding learning opportunities for all children.

What is Cornerstones?

Cornerstones Curriculum is creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations.

Cornerstones provides a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning that make creative links between all aspects of children’s learning.

We believe that children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require the children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.

Children present their learning using a sketch book which they personalise and develop throughout the year. We have found that our children take great pride and joy in the development of their wider curriculum sketch books and take real ownership of how they would like to present their leaning journey.

How it works?

Children progress through four stages of learning (Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express).
