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.
