cstonesAt Higham Ferrers Junior School we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum.

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.  We have adapted some of the content to make the most of opportunities provided within our local community.

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 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 and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that requires children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.

How it Works?

Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to Cornerstones website:

At school today we have been discussing the appalling tragedy in Manchester with the children. We have looked at the BBC Newsround website which includes advice for children on what to do if they are worried. We have reassured children that at school and home their teachers and parents are always there to talk to them about any worries they have. 


If you would like some helpful tips on how to speak to your children about this please follow the link to this article on the BBC website.

I am sure you will join everyone at HFJS in sharing our thoughts with all the families impacted by this tragedy.
