The Meadows Primary School is pleased to announce that to further enhance the learning experiences for its pupils we will be adopting the Cornerstones curriculum.

What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?
The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our new curriculum will be delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which will provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning.
The cornerstones Philosophy
We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.
Cornerstones also provide a rigorous essential skills framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These essential skills are tied to activities and are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
Learning Overviews for the Spring Term 2017
Although the cornerstones curriculum includes aspects of the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) and Maths requirements for each year group there will be the need to teach aspects of these subjects discretely.
