About Trinity Church of England School, Belvedere
Cornerstone is an 11-19 co-educational special free school, opening in September 2021 for approximately 16 pupils across two Year 7 classes. Situated in Belvedere in the London Borough of Bexley, the school is for pupils with autism and social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, working at age-related expectations. At capacity, the school will have 90 pupils.
At Cornerstone, our vision is to ensure that every young person we work with is ‘Happy, confident and ready to contribute’. Built upon a foundation of compassion, we want every child to thrive and recognise the unique gifts they have. To this effect, the school has three key values:
• AMBITION: We have high expectations for all of the pupils and staff in our school. By working to build on individual strengths, but also taking the time and patience needed to understand weaknesses and supporting pupils to address these (both cognitive and emotional), we instil a strong sense of ambition in all.
• CURIOSITY: Curiosity is at the heart of life-long learning; at Cornerstone it is valued and rewarded. By instilling a sense of curiosity, every day brings opportunity to learn more about ourselves, our surrounding environment and we grow as a result.
• HAPPINESS: All members of the school deserve to be happy – when we are happy, we can flourish.
Our desire to achieve this vision, and to live out the key values of the school, run inherent through everything we do. This begins with the school environment, in which we provide a happy, safe and calm place in which pupils can feel secure. We encourage kindness at all times, promoting a compassionate and nurturing environment and dedicate the necessary time to form and maintain positive relationships.
We ensure pupils have access to a tailored, personalised curriculum in which they can work towards, and achieve, individual goals. Central to this personalised curriculum is recognising and developing individual interests and skills, promoting inquisitive learning. Pupils are also supported to develop critical life skills, ensuring they are empowered to make informed choices beyond the classroom. Cornerstone School says to its pupils we will provide ‘A foundation of learning, tailored to you’.
Cornerstone School will be a sibling of Trinity Church of England School, Belvedere and is part of the family of schools within the Trinitas Academy Trust
