Pilsley C of E School

Our new curriculum!

At Pilsley, we are constantly looking for ways to adapt our practice in order to make greater gains for the children. Given the fact we are now teaching a new National Curriculum, we have decided to invest some money into buying a new scheme which runs across the school from Reception-Y6. The package we have bought is called ‘Cornerstones’.

‘Cornerstones’ works on the belief that children learn better when their interests and fascinations are allowed to flourish, where they are encouraged to explore subjects in a variety of ways and are viewed in terms of their strengths, not their weaknesses. ‘Cornerstones’ developed a four-stage teaching philosophy: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. Each stage provides opportunities for children to learn and respond in a variety of ways, keeping projects flexible and able to follow children’s interests and needs.

We are confident that the children will really enjoy learning through this approach and we are very much looking forward to teaching from it too!

We are currently experiencing an unprecedented situation with the rapidly changing advice and guidance around Covid-19. We would like to keep parents and carers as up to date as possible by directing them to the following means of information. The latest government advice can be found at DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk. The latest advice and guidance from the Local Authority can be found at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/coronavirus. Public Health England for the East Midlands information can be found as follows: PHE East Midlands response centre- Telephone 0344 2254524 followed by Option 0 to get through to East Midlands Health Protection Team, then press option 1 and ask for the Coronavirus response centre which opens from 8am-8pm.
