Teaching and learning with Cornerstones Curriculum


Hallbrook Primary School offers a broad and balanced, knowledge and skills based curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum.


What is the Cor­ner­stones Curriculum?

The Cor­ner­stones Cur­ricu­lum is a cre­ative and the­matic approach to learn­ing that is mapped to the Pri­mary National Cur­ricu­lum to ensure com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age of national expec­ta­tions.  Our curriculum is deliv­ered through Imag­i­na­tive Learn­ing Projects (ILPs) which pro­vide a rich menu of excit­ing and moti­vat­ing learn­ing activ­i­ties that make cre­ative links between all aspects of our children’s learning.

We believe chil­dren learn bet­ter when they are encour­aged to use their imag­i­na­tion and apply their learn­ing to engag­ing con­texts.  Our cur­ricu­lum pro­vides 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.


How it Works?

Chil­dren will progress through four stages of learn­ing in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Inno­vate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to the Cor­ner­stones website:
