What is the Bracebridge Curriculum?


Here at Bracebridge Infant and Nursery School, we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children. Our curriculum is tailored to the needs, cohorts and diversity within our school curriculum


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 ensure correct coverage of the National curriculum, we also teach some subjects separately.  We have  sports coaches from MSP and Synergy who deliver PE linked to encouraging a healthy lifestyle.  We use the Lincolnshire RE Syllabus alongside the Understanding Christianity documents to support Teaching and Learning in R.E
