Building Futures with Love.

A warm welcome

Welcome to the website of East Cowton and Kirkby Fleetham Church of England Schools. We are two separate schools, who have worked together since 2015 and are now part of the Cornerstones collaboration.

Cornerstone schools are four very small, rural schools who share one headteacher and senior leadership team. We have a joint curriculum and subject leadership is shared over our sites. The staff of the four schools work closely together, meaning that we benefit from a large staff team whilst still retaining the unique warm and caring character of our individual small schools.

We ensure that we provide safe and happy places to learn. Our vision statement is ‘building futures with love’ and our overarching aim is to be a group of schools which enable each child and adult to flourish and be the architect of their own future which is rooted in love. Through our curriculum we teach children to love each other, love the world and love themselves. Our lessons are exciting and engaging, and support all children to develop into caring, confident, resilient, and inquisitive young people with a passion for learning and a desire to succeed.

This website should give you a flavour of the unique provision we offer, but if you would like to come and see us while we are busy learning, then please do come and visit, our children are proud of our schools and would be delighted to show you around.

*Please be aware we are currently updating our website and new  Cornerstone School content will be available shortly. Please do contact us if you cant find the information you are looking for.
