Episode 55: School improvement through an inclusive curriculum: Queen Emma’s Primary
07th May 2020
Caroline speaks to Vicky Musson, Director of Education at the Mill Academy Trust. Vicky shares the incredible journey undertaken at one of the two primary schools in the Trust, Queen Emma’s, from RI to Good using a range of well-considered interventions, relentless routines and an inclusive curriculum approach. Although in a fairly affluent area in the Cotswolds, the school has had to overcome many challenges including a high proportion of disadvantaged and SEND children, being undersubscribed, teacher retention issues, and very low reading scores. An inspirational listen for any primary senior leaders.

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.
