What's different about the Cornerstones Curriculum?

Ambitious, purposeful learning with children at the heart.

Primary focused

Developed by an experienced and knowledgeable primary team, the curriculum provides an aspirational and ambitious, broad and balanced menu of learning for even the youngest children through a range of inspiring subject-led projects.

Sequenced and connected

Curriculum projects are carefully sequenced and interconnected to support children's learning over time. This level of curriculum sequencing offers you unrivalled coherence from high-level concepts to granular knowledge and skills objectives.

Informed by science

The curriculum is informed by the latest cognitive science findings and enables deep learning of subject concepts and aspects. Spaced practice and opportunities for retrieval are mapped carefully across the whole curriculum.

Coverage and progression

The curriculum is underpinned by a robust knowledge and skills framework that builds on the national curriculum programmes of study and breaks all subjects down into sequenced chunks of skills and knowledge.

Adaptable and editable

Save hours by simply adapting and editing the content we provide, using the functionality of Curriculum Maestro. Customise lesson plans, add your own projects, and adapt the curriculum to reflect your school's unique strengths and needs.

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.

    We are in a much better place with CM than with our old curriculum. We will be making it more bespoke in the second year.

    I have used Cornerstones from its first launch. The product has been refined over time as it is driven by feedback from schools and teachers delivering the content. The company is also responsive to a school's needs.

    Maestro is a real time saver, particularly for leadership teams and subject leaders. There is a wealth of information and resources which can be used and adapted by creative skills teachers. The way the curriculum is mapped is excellent and was commented on in a very recent Ofsted inspection.

    I have recommended and told many other schools and school staff about it. I would always though suggest that they need to ensure it is right for their school setting and the needs of their staff and pupils.

    It has been a revelation. Staff are finding their way through it and if we have any questions, the support from Cornerstones is amazing. We always get answers to our questions. It is now our one-stop-shop for curriculum with linked up thinking and approach through an intuitive and user-friendly system.
