Our Curriculum - Preparing our children for life in all its fullness

Here at Oak Hill we provide a broad and balanced curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children. 

We were excited to introduce the Cornerstones Curriculum in Autumn Term 2021 and have been delighted by our pupils ethusiastic response to it.  We have priortised establishing our new curriculum in every classroom but please be assured, all of our teaching staff are working hard to finalise all of the information we want to share with you.  We will be publishing more details over the course of this year about every area of our school's curriculum. 

We are confident the significant changes introduced this year, after an in-depth review of teaching and learning across the school, are the right choices for all children at Oak Hill whatever their age and stage of development. 

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 approach to teaching 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.
