How to ensure coverage with a broad and balanced curriculum
Episode 04: How to ensure coverage with a broad and balanced curriculum
24th November 2017
Episode 4 of The Curriculum is available for you to listen to now. This time, I’m joined by Catherine Scutt, Amy McCaw and Laura Bell, all Curriculum Consultants here at Cornerstones. We’re talking about the idea of a broad and balanced curriculum again, this time in the context of covering everything you need to in the national curriculum.
From the effect on timetabling to running specialist curriculum weeks, we look what schools can do to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum while ensuring appropriate coverage. It’s all about being flexible, careful planning and working together as a whole school.

Helping schools to transform the lives of children through powerful curriculum and meaningful assessment
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.
