It's a fantastic system that helps planning, tracking and assessment. It's just a very difficult system to use and can be complicated to find the areas that you need. It would be great if the system was easier to use and simpler to navigate.

Jan 2022

Lots of great resources. We particularly love the art and DT lessons- they show clear progress and building of skills within each unit. The RE units have really useful info and avoid teachers having to do extensive research. We still have some trouble navigating the system- the website is very 'busy'. Some history and geog units are very reading heavy so we extract the texts and use those for whole class reading lessons. Would appreciate some more creative activity ideas for humanities subjects- seems to be a lot of read/research and fill in the sheet.

Maz Whittaker found Curriculum Maestro:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    We no longer have to spend ages sourcing good quality resources such as texts and videos
  • Slightly provides school data
    haven't used this function yet
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    THe sequence of lessons is clear so there's less 'faffing'
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Don't know yet
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Knowledge organisers are great. The key information they need to know for each topic is very clear.

I have recommended and told many other schools and school staff about it. I would always though suggest that they need to ensure it is right for their school setting and the needs of their staff and pupils

Kathryn found Curriculum Maestro:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Preparing and finding resources for lessons
  • Slightly provides school data
    I believe it will do but as yet we haven't used it in that way
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Teachers have the plans and resources, they can group and stream and give different activities to groups and support staff and so they are more effective and efficient in what they are doing
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Awaiting to see but it is most likely as the engagement with the topic and their interest is high
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    It allows pupils to connect skills, knowledge and learning together and relate them to specific areas of the curriculum and objectives

Maestro has allowed us to have confidence in the knowledge that we are covering the National Curriculum for all subjects, it is a great tool for subject leaders to analyse and progress their subjects and as school leaders you have a clear overview of planning, assessment, coverage and attainment at all times.

Justin Cowley found Curriculum Maestro:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The planning allows for a well organised, themed approach to a topic which gives the children a context around their learning allowing for deeper learning.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Teachers need only to focus on the actual individual lessons and how they are going to deliver it as everything else is done for them.

It has been a revelation. Staff are finding their way through it and if we have any questions, the support from Cornerstones is amazing. We always get answers to our questions. It is now our one-stop-shop for curriculum with linked up thinking and approach through an intuitive and user-friendly system.

Moira Cross found Curriculum Maestro:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Maestro helps staff to plan more effectively and teach age related expectations across all subjects. This is something we needed to develop and Maestro has supported this well.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It has helped us to streamline planning and the use of the ready prepared lessons has saved staff time. We simply make adaptations that reflect our locality and the children in each cohort. It has also saved staff time in thinking of the teaching sequence and finding the resources to plan it. We were worried it could strip away what makes teachers individual but it hasn't. Through careful selections and the ability to plan supplementary lessons with lesson builder where staff choose to, our own curriculum design is being supported not dictated.

It is a one stop shop. It has the curriculum design, to the topics that cover the NC and more, to the individual lessons and resources, to the tools to assess children and for subject leaders to be able to monitor their subject confidently.

We are very happy with Cornerstones Maestro, it has given us a structure around which we have built our curriculum, enabling learners across our school to succeed.

Cormac Murphy found Curriculum Maestro:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Allows us to identify and assess key knowledge that we want to ensure the children learn- this is often straight from their knowledge organisers. We then assess the children's learning using low stakes quizzes, which are provided or adapted from Cornerstones templates. This sharper focus has seen an increase in the proportion of children in a typical class recalling these identified pieces of knowledge.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The way the Maestro platform is organised, allows teachers to plan individual lessons and longer units of learning quickly, with easy access to the resources they need.
