Curriculum Overview

Here at Grimoldby Primary School, we follow the Cornerstones Curriculum. This is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs), the curriculum provides a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of children’s learning.
