HeadteacherChat’s Review of:
Cornerstones’ Curriculum Maestro
Watch a video:
An Absolute Game Changer for Curriculum Design and Implementation:
‘Our mission is to help primary schools design, deliver and manage an outstanding curriculum that is right for their children.’ Melanie Moore, Curriculum Director of Cornerstones Education
'The children love Cornerstones and are very enthusiastic to talk about their learning. Our outcomes are on a three-year upward trend in all areas. I couldn't recommend it more.’ Headteacher, Sawbridgeworth
‘Cornerstones has transformed all aspects of teaching and learning in our school. It more than meets the needs of Ofsted’s new emphasis.’ Headteacher, Goole.
Everything is in one place, on one easy to use online teaching and learning platform:
The pressures on schools have never been greater. In our increasingly busy school environments, having a system that enables schools to easily develop an inspiring and cohesive curriculum, with engaging sequences of lessons, timetabling opportunities, assessment tracking grids and coverage and progression monitoring systems all in one place, seems like a very sensible idea.
Curriculum Maestro does that. It takes all those elements of curriculum design, delivery and management and puts it onto one, easy to use platform.
Meticulously planned lesson sequences providing engaging learning opportunities:
Curriculum Maestro is an inspiring and innovative curriculum platform developed using the latest educational research and in partnership with over 500 school leaders and curriculum experts.
Included is an invaluable assessment tracker, which enables teachers to upload assessment information as part of the lesson, allowing for real-time assessment opportunities.
If schools would like to create their own resources, they can create their own projects and upload them to the knowledge and skills progression framework, helping schools to ensure coverage and progression across subjects.
