Curriculum

Here at Stroud Valley we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.

We follow Letters and Sounds Primary National Strategy.

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. A curriculum overview for each topic will be uploaded termly and will include details about the learning taking place.

Key Stage Two Curriculum

Our curriculum is planned over two cycles. This ensures full coverage of the requirements of the National Curriculum. The curriculum is taught through a thematic approach and we develop the skills of learning as well as the knowledge expected. This year (2015-2016) we are following Cycle One. Our curriculum is continually developing as we evaluate our successes and build on them.
