Danetree Curriculum

 

Here at Danetree Primary School, we provide a creative curriculum using material the Cornerstones Curriculum- a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children- and our own bespoke curriculum designed to cater for our children. Alongside our topic-centred approach, we offer specialist teaching in music and the arts.

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 does it work at Danetree?

We utilise the Cornerstones ILP headings and the creative ideas that each topic has to offer and combine these with our own skills and knowledge progression for each subject to ensure that children build on previous learning and that no gaps are formed. 

Below are a number of documents that detail our curriculum offer here at Danetree across the school, throughout the year. You will also find information regarding Homelearning and Stunning Starts which support our curriculum offer.
