Schools across the country are getting creative - thanks to a Goldthorpe based company, that now employs 26 people.

Cornerstones Education Ltd has 500 schools using its creative curriculum learning materials, to help teachers to prepare lessons.

One Doncaster school even says that using Cornerstones’ products helped it to get a good Ofsted rating, to good with outstanding features from inadequate at an inspection six months previously.

The Goldthorpe company is headed by Melanie Moore.

She said: “We set up our company two years ago with the express intention of spreading and supporting a creative learning philosophy in schools across England and Wales.”

She added: “We are aware of concerns that new demands presented by the National Curriculum may squeeze creativity out of learning, but we are adamant that a creative curriculum is proven to get results and there will be no need to compromise in the future.”

Shipston on Stour Primary School in Warwickshire is the company’s 500th customer.
