National Curriculum

Children in Years 1 to 6 follow the national curriculum. The revised curriculum has been taught in schools since September 2014 and, as a result, not all year groups have been taught the new curriculum for the entirety of their primary schooling.

Rising Stars (a publisher of educational materials) have produced a handy guide to the national curriculum for families. This can be downloaded below. We acknowledge all content as theirs.

The School Curriculum

Each school is free to decide how it will organise its curriculum in order to achieve the best outcomes for its pupils.Here at St Edward’s  we provide a broad and balanced curriculum based around 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 2014 primary national curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. It is based on a child-centered pedagogy called The Four Cornerstones and 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 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 many learning challenges throughout the academic year

that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively.


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.
