Paston Ridings 
Primary School



At Paston Ridings Primary School, we aim to bring learning to life by providing high quality teaching and inspirational learning activities which link to all areas of the curriculum.  Through the Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs), we want children to engage, develop, innovate and allow children to express their ideas through a range of activities.

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative approach to learning that is mapped to the Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of National expectations.  Our curriculum is delivered through half-termly ILPs which will provide exciting and motivating learning, which makes creative links between all aspects of our children's learning.



A thought provoking starting point that stirs curiosity and creates interest. Children engage in purposeful learning experiences; in and outside the classroom, making use of partners, experts and the community to provide the stimulus to learn. To ensure that children are immediately ‘engaged’, teachers provide a range of memorable experiences and starting points that stimulate the children’s interests in a particular theme or concept.


Here, children are given the opportunity to expand and key skills, subject knowledge and independence. Children become conscientious learners who can process information and experiences, resulting in a good level of understanding and progress.


This stage of learning allows for children to work creatively, explore possibilities and find. . Teachers provide an imaginative and relevant scenario that provides opportunities to observe how successfully children can use, apply and problem solve in creative and imaginative ways


Finally, children are given the chance to share, celebrate and reflect with a range of partners and audiences. Children cement their learning through shared reflection with peers and other adults and are able to suggest next steps of learning. Teachers discuss, review and support individual and group evaluations using their observations and evidence to make summative assessments.
