Early in the academic year, each class teacher meets with parents to explain the expectations of the children in their class and to provide other important information.  There are also a variety of other handouts which are not available here because of copyright restrictions.  Please contact the class teacher for further details of other handouts regarding subject expectations.

       Curriculum from 2018-9     

We now provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum: a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
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. 
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. 
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 Cornerstones website:

The information also provides suggestions for ways in which the family can become involved in the topic. 
Why not try some of the activities at home?

Learning Quests
Each term, up to the end of 2017-8, the curriculum was taught through a 'Learning Quest' in which all the elements of the various subjects were brought together and taught in a creative, practical and exciting way.  Information about the Learning Quests and the subject content of each Quest is detailed below.  The Learning Quests repeated and were developed over each two-year cycle.
