Everything we do here is 'For children... for all'. St Peter's is a 'Take Care' school where we take care of ourselves, each other, the world and with our work.
Our curriculum has been carefully is designed to actively encourage participation through the many opportunities we provide. Using Cornerstones Maestro, we plan a progressive range of activities and experiences for your child to learn, grow, achieve and enjoy shaped through participation, effort, determination, resilience and a 'take care' attitude towards new and exciting learning opportunities.
Here at St. Peter'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-centred pedagogy called The Four Cornerstones and is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) and Knowledge Rich Projects (KRPs), 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 skills and knowledge framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These skills and knowledge are tied to activities and are age-related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
