Primary curriculum event

Cornerstones are excited to launch our new events held in venues around the coast.

Each half-day event is FREE and includes lunch and refreshments.

Who’s it for?

How to design your primary curriculum is for primary headteachers, senior leaders and subject leaders at any stage of curriculum development, who want to learn the essential steps to designing an outstanding curriculum. 

The half-day events are ideal for those who are ‘Cornerstones-curious’ or want to build or refine their curriculum to meet the new Ofsted requirements. (If you currently use Cornerstones, you’ll already have the foundations, tools and materials to help you design a successful curriculum and can access our support anytime).

‘Very good day! So much food for thought. Thank you for thinking of so many things we struggle to find time for.’

Benefits of attending

Each half-day event will take you through the essential steps of curriculum development from intent, implementation to impact, helping you:

  • meet the curriculum requirements of the new Ofsted EIF
  • develop a well-sequenced, knowledge and skills-rich framework 
  • reduce workload so you can focus on great teaching and learning
  • design and deliver a curriculum that’s right for your school’s context and values.

Whatever stage you are on your curriculum development journey, attending the event will help you refine your approach. Throughout the session, there will be opportunities to reflect on your school’s curriculum and hear from schools who are developing successful curricula in the region. 

This summer, our Curriculum Evolution events filled up fast, so we strongly advise you to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Why the coast?

We want to share the fantastic curriculum work that schools are doing, alongside our own and Jonathan’s curriculum design expertise, to a wider audience.

However, we’re aware that educational events and conferences are often held in major inland cities and are not always practical to reach for school staff in coastal and rural areas.

Many coastal primary schools are offering vibrant, well-developed curricula that inspire children to learn and are having a positive effect on their communities and we want to celebrate and acknowledge this. Your school, your curriculum.

Over the past 10 years, we’ve been lucky enough to get to know over 2000 schools who are providing fantastic education for the children in their communities. We work with schools of all types and sizes in urban, rural and coastal locations. What we’ve learnt during our 10+ years in curriculum development is that every school is unique and each brings the Cornerstones Curriculum to life in a different way. 

We look forward to meeting you at the events!

    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.

    Conrad Fox – Headteacher, Hunmanby Primary School, England


    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.

    Lindsey Wain – Deputy headteacher, Hartburn Primary School, England


    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.

    Charlotte Gibbins – Thurlstone Primary School, England


    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.

    Kathryn – Teacher, Langton Primary School


    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.
