Our Curriculum

Bankfields Primary School Curriculum Statement At Bankfields Primary School, the aim of our curriculum is foster a climate of curiosity and passion in our children about the world around them, helping them to develop an understanding of and be open-minded about wider national and global issues. We aim to immerse them in first hand experiences, which they may not have access to otherwise, and allow them to explore their own interests as well as building on their strengths in different curriculum areas. At Bankfields Primary School, we want to raise the aspirations of our pupils so that they can be happy, successful and proud of what they achieve and have belief in themselves as individuals. This will in turn improve their life chances and equip them with the skills and knowledge that they need to support them on their journey through life. What is the Cornerstones Curriculum? The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our curriculum is delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which 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, be creative and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that 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. Please click on the links below to see further details of the exciting topics that our children will be covering throughout the year.
