Bournemouth Park Academy Curriculum
Curriculum - Skills & Knowledge Progression
Here at Bournemouth Park Academy we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
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 new curriculum will be delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which will 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 new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will 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.
Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express.

There may be certain times when it is necessary to use remote learning to provide teaching and learning for pupils at home. The academy is able to offer a range of media to be able to ensure pupils are able to continue to access the curriculum should it be required. This is most likely to be provided in the event of snow days, and if remote learning is required we will be in contact to update you with necessary arrangements.
