What's different about the Cornerstones Curriculum?

Ambitious, purposeful learning with children at the heart.

Based on proven pedagogy

The Cornerstones Curriculum is underpinned by a child-focused four stage pedagogy: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. With this pedagogy at its heart, the curriculum supports children's learning, motivation and wellbeing.

Sequenced and connected

The curriculum projects are carefully sequenced and interconnected to support children’s learning over time. From high level concepts to granular knowledge and skills objectives, this level of curriculum sequencing offers you unrivalled coherence.

Inspiring projects

We've designed the Cornerstones projects to inspire teachers to teach and children to learn. Supported by literacy packs and rich in knowledge and skills, these diverse, purposeful topics will see engagement and impact soar in your school.

Coverage and progression

The curriculum follows a robust skills and knowledge framework that builds upon national curriculum programmes of study. This provides clear subject endpoints for concepts, aspects, knowledge and skills, to help children make progress.

Make it yours

Content is easy to adapt to suit your children – simply tweak the curriculum using Curriculum Maestro’s editing tools. Tailor projects, objectives and lessons to suit your children’s interests and needs at the click of a few buttons, saving unimaginable amounts of time.

Quality resources

High-quality teaching resources make a real difference. We research and design every resource to help you deliver impactful, engaging lessons. From videos to knowledge organisers, vocabulary-rich reading texts to activity packs, you won’t find resources quite like them.

Cornerstones has been an amazing resource for our school community. It has helped to transform the engagement of our children and parents. Everyone is talking about their learning, and there is a real buzz around the school.

Our recent Ofsted focused on the curriculum and, as an existing Cornerstones school, we felt confident. Our SATs are of a very high standard and I felt that we were possibly selected six months early as they thought that we had a restricted curriculum. They soon saw that we didn't, and that our curriculum was broad and vibrant.
