Chiddingstone Church of England School

Educating for life in all its fullness - John 10:10

Creative Curriculum Overview

At Chiddingstone Church of England School we are extremely proud of our creative and vibrant curriculum which puts children at its heart. Clear progression of skills and logically sequenced, the Cornerstones Curriculum contains inspiring "Imaginative and Knowledge Rich Projects” which provide a broad and balanced curriculum.  Where children know more and remember more over time.  


Each project ensures children gain knowledge and skills in individual subjects including science, geography, history, art and design, design and technology and music.  The project approach supports children to understand the interrelationship between subjects and allows transferability of skills across a broad and balanced curriculum.


This is a creative approach to learning, built on the criteria for an outstanding curriculum. It ensures that children learn in the most holistic way and are involved in what they are learning. A focus on creativity and real-life experiences supports our school vision of educating for life in all its fullness. 


Cornerstones is based on the Four Cornerstones of Learning:




These Cornerstones provide a consistent pedagogy for learning throughout school.


ENGAGE in their learning through relevant and emotional experiences which are purposeful and stimulating.  Learning takes place both in and out of the classroom.


DEVELOP knowledge, skills and understanding to underpin and make sense of the world around them.


INNOVATE using all their knowledge, skills, understanding and imagination through a challenging and structured provocation where children will work both independently, cooperatively and collaboratively.


EXPRESS the outcomes from their provocations in a variety of different forms using a range of different methods and media, and celebrate this work with the wider community.
