Curriculum Information For Parents / Carers

At our school it is vital to us that we provide children with opportunities that will enable them to remember more of their learning through an implementation of a sequenced, knowledge-rich, in-depth curriculum which takes advantage of quality texts. This is why we use Cornerstones to help design and sequence our foundation and science curriculum.

Main and mini projects are used to support children to develop a deeper understanding of what they are learning and to raise the profile of foundation subjects.
