Curriculum Statement

Cornerstones Creative Curriculum

At Stanford le Hope Primary School we have introduced the  educational learning resource called “Cornerstones” to help us teach the wider curriculum.

This is a vibrant and creative curriculum that puts children at its heart. We believe Cornerstones excites children's imaginations, inspires them to learn, extends their horizons, deepens their understanding and meets their intellectual and personal needs.

The Four Cornerstones

The Cornerstones Primary Curriculum is built upon a four stage teaching and learning philosophy.


What do the Four Cornerstones look like?

    Start with a memorable first-hand experience
    Begin observations, research and setting questions
    Fully engage with the new topic
  • Develop

    Explore, make and do
  • Innovate

  • Express
