Personal Development

Our children participate in a wide variety of activities to broaden their interests, excitement and knowledge of the world around them.

They know that keeping physically healthy keeps them mentally healthy as well. They are responsible and respectful towards others and the environment and are aware of their place in the community.


Behaviour and Attitudes

Children demonstrate excellent behaviour around the school and are caring and safe. They are resilient learners and take pride in their achievements.


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. It is based on a child-centred pedagogy called The Four Cornerstones and 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 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 many learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively. Cornerstones also provide a rigorous skills and knowledge framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects.

These skills and knowledge are tied to activities and are age-related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.

At Marston Moreteyne School, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.


Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEND. At Marston Moreteyne School, the SENCO ensures all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who have SEND. The SENDCO works in close partnership with the family and class teachers. We ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.



SEND & Curriculum Accessibility

These four stages take children on an exciting learning journey and enable knowledge and understanding to stick, be used and applied in contexts!

At Marston Moreteyne School we offer an exciting curriculum that is both broad and balanced. It is rich in knowledge, skills and meaningful experiences. All subjects are highly valued and equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and understanding in every area of the curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers contains the essential knowledge that children will need to know as part of the new topic they will be working on in class. These Knowledge Organisers will be frequently used in class as well as shared with parents and carers – with the aim that everyone knows exactly what is being taught, and what the children need to learn and remember.
