09th October 2020
Racism, diversity and inclusion are continually pressing issues, and we in education play a vital role. Part of the solution is to broaden the inclusion of Black history in the curriculum. In this special episode, Caroline talks to Black history expert, Angelina Osborne, author of the bestselling book, 100 Great Black Britons. They discuss raising awareness of the lives and achievements of Black British people, the need for teaching beyond the slave trade and civil rights, and how teachers can approach this. An essential listen for anyone in education.
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.
