Here at Ferham Primary School we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum.


We constantly work hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. As part of this work, we have decided to implement 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 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 require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.

How does it work?


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

The school provides rich learning opportunities based on the Cornerstones Curriculum which is now well established as a planning tool.  Learning is purposeful with visits and visitors planned in to interest and excite pupils.

A fantastic afternoon with Y5 & 6 at their VE Day party to end their learning project. The children talked enthusiastically about their learning. Thank you to our friends at the British Legion, the PCSOs and the parents who joined us. Thank you to the staff who provided the catering and decorated the hall to make it a special event for our children. An afternoon we will all remember. 😊 #everychildisinspiredtoshine
