How can Maestro help with assessment?

Maestro comes with an inbuilt skills and knowledge progression framework, which underpins your curriculum content. This framework gives teachers clear assessment points in every primary subject. Maestro provides teachers with class-based assessment tools to monitor and support learning. Live recording of what has been taught and learnt, alongside quizzes and more formal half termly tests, enables you to make quality assessment for learning and accurate teacher assessments.

What do I get when I subscribe to Maestro?

Your school will have access to an all in one platform where you can design, deliver and manage your primary curriculum. Here you can choose from over 100 engaging Cornerstones Curriculum projects. You can edit and adapt these projects or add your own projects to the platform. To save teachers time, Maestro also includes thousands of supporting lesson plans and resources.

All content is automatically linked to a built in skills and knowledge framework, to ensure clear progression and coverage across the school and between all year groups. Maestro also has a complete assessment for learning package and leadership tools for monitoring the impact of your curriculum. Our experienced curriculum advisers will provide you with ongoing curriculum support as and when you need it.

How much does an annual Maestro licence cost?

Our pricing is flexible and offers excellent value, making it cost effective for any school. Your annual curriculum licence will give all staff access to Maestro, including all curriculum materials, assessment tools, resources, new features and ongoing expert support. The price depends on the size of your school, and we offer discounts for multi-school purchases. For schools new to Cornerstones, the licence ranges from £775 to £2,750. Just give us a call or email us and we can give you a quote for your school.

We also offer loyalty discounts for schools already using the Cornerstones Hub or preHub materials. If you are already using Cornerstones materials, please get in touch for your loyalty pricing details.

We currently have an active Cornerstones Curriculum licence. Is there an additional cost to switch from The Hub to Curriculum Maestro?

As a 'loyalty school', it's free to move on to Curriculum Maestro from The Hub. After this, you'll pay an annual renewal fee. The Maestro renewal is higher than the old Hub renewal cost because you get so much more, however, you will receive a substantial discount compared to new schools. Maestro is a comprehensive, live, all in one platform that removes the need to buy additional expensive assessment packages and further curriculum consultancy. Over 1000 schools have already moved to Maestro, as The Hub will be closing in August 2021. We would be happy to arrange this for you.

We used to have a Cornerstones Curriculum licence. Can we rejoin on Maestro?

Yes, you can absolutely rejoin us on Maestro. We just need a few details from you to set up your annual licence and get you up and running in no time.

Do you offer a free trial?

The best way to trial Maestro is to book a one to one or group demo with one of our advisers. They will listen to your needs and show you the features that will help you most. You are then very welcome to book further demos and ask us any questions before deciding upon purchasing your licence. Once your licence starts, you’ll get ongoing curriculum support to help you to get the most out of Maestro.

What will a demo show me?

A demo is the perfect opportunity to see how Maestro works. One of our curriculum advisers will ask you what you need and will show you how to use Maestro in the best way to support your school. The demo is a great way to get a feel for what Maestro offers and how it can save you time. The next step is to book a more focused session where we can take you through the simple curriculum design process step by step.

Can someone come into my school to demonstrate Maestro?

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and government guidelines, much of our support is offered through online demonstrations. If you need us to visit in person, we can do this so long as government guidelines are followed.

What support is available?

Our team includes experienced primary leaders, advisers and teachers who are here to help you at every step of your curriculum journey. We can help you to work on your curriculum intent, help you to implement it, and how to monitor and maintain its impact on teaching and learning. Visit our 'About’ page to view our team and our ‘Contact’ page to get in touch. You can also ask us questions via Live Chat on our website and on your Maestro homepage.

Will Maestro save teachers time?

Yes. Maestro saves teachers hours, if not weeks, of planning time. You have everything that you need to plan, deliver, monitor and assess your curriculum, all in one place. The 100+ projects are connected, adaptable and come with high quality resources, so that you don’t have to trawl the internet looking for resources to use in classes. We also offer ongoing teacher support, to help you to make the most of your curriculum.

Can I sync Maestro with my school’s Management Information System (MIS)?

We've partnered with Wonde to synchronise Maestro with information in your MIS (such as Capita SIMS, RM Integris, ScholarPack). This means that your classes and pupils will always be up to date with information about attributes, new pupils or pupils that have left the school. Maestro uses this information securely to populate your midterm plans, monitor actual coverage and allow you to assess in real time.

If your school is not yet using the Wonde portal, we will cover the cost of this service for you. This means that you have the option, free of charge, to ensure that Maestro stays in sync with any relevant information that you input or change in your MIS. Please get in touch to find out more.

How can I design a bespoke curriculum on Cwricwlwm Maestro?

Cwriciwlwm Maestro is not an off the shelf, readymade offer, but a system to support schools to design, deliver and manage their provision in line with the Curriculum for Wales guidance. You are in control at every stage of curriculum development and have clear ownership of your curriculum. It’s also easy to review and edit your curriculum, as everything is live, saved, and shared online.

Where should we start with our curriculum design?

A co-constructed and shared curriculum statement is a vital place to start your design process. Talk with your stakeholders about your vision and agree on a statement that embraces your school context and the desired overarching entitlement for the pupils of your school. This vision and pupil entitlement can be easily created and shared with stakeholders on Cwricwlwm Maestro.

How can Cwricwlwm Maestro help track progression?

The Welsh government advise schools that they don't need to assess directly against the descriptions of learning. However, progression is at the heart of good curriculum design, so Maestro includes a clear, built in skills and knowledge progression framework. This means that you can track children’s progression and their increasingly sophisticated understanding in all areas of learning and experience. Maestro integrates and connects curriculum content and assessment in every subject, supporting leadership at all levels.

How is Cwricwlwm Maestro aligned with the new Curriculum for Wales requirements?

Central to the Curriculum for Wales statutory guidance is that schools design a bespoke curriculum with progression at its heart. Maestro helps you to define your curriculum vision, develop sequenced content and make meaningful assessments. The editable projects on Maestro offer you a starting point to deliver an engaging, broad curriculum with the four purposes at its heart. You can also add your own bespoke content. Maestro covers all areas of learning, and experience and is directly linked to the statements of what matters.

Are there any Welsh language resources?

We have created Welsh language resources in the 11 Welsh humanities projects for Year 1 to Year 6. To give you choice and make it truly bespoke for your needs, all content on Maestro is editable. This means that teachers can build lessons into projects to incorporate specific content, for example, Welsh local history study, or Welsh literacy and communication.

How can Maestro Lite help with assessment?

Maestro Lite comes with an inbuilt skills and knowledge progression framework, which underpins your curriculum content. This framework gives teachers clear assessment points in every primary subject. Maestro provides teachers with class-based assessment tools to monitor and support learning, such as live recording of what has been taught and learnt, Maths, Reading and SPaG tests and the ability to run the reports you need.

What’s the difference between Maestro and Maestro Lite?

Both platforms help you to design, deliver and manage your curriculum, but Maestro Lite does not include the Cornerstones Curriculum. For a full run down of the features and how they compare, see the curriculum page.

How much does Maestro Lite cost?

The price depends on the size of your school, and we offer discounts for multi-school purchases. For schools new to Cornerstones, the licence ranges from £750 to £1,500 per year. Just give us a call or email us to get a quote for your school.

If you are already using Cornerstones Curriculum materials, please get in touch for your loyalty pricing details.
