Cornerstones offers a broad and balanced curriculum which is knowledge and skills based with a creative edge. This gives our staff access to over 80 themed projects mapped to the national curriculum which we then adapt to fit the needs of our children.

The Four Cornerstones of Learning provide the structure on which to build your curriculum. We call these Engage, Develop, Innovate, and Express. We believe this pedagogy reflects the best way children learn and is rooted in a variety of different educational approaches and research. Put simply, the four stages are as follows:

Engage – hook children in with a memorable experience.
Develop – allow children time to gather the skills and knowledge they need to develop a deep understanding.
Innovate – offer creative experiences that allow children to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding.
Express – provide the space and time for reflecting, evaluating, and celebrating learning.

Throughout the year parents are given the opportunity to attend an Express Exhibition for their child's year group an example of this can be seen in the School Events tab on the left hand side.
