Teaching opportunities

Who is Cornerstone?

The Bay CE and Niton Primary schools each have long and proud histories of serving our two communities, each with its own unique identity. Now operating together as one organisation, with one Governing Board, we are best placed to offer our children the highest possible standard of 21st Century teaching and learning.

Our ethos

Our federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which children can flourish. We seek to stimulate the love of learning in our children so that they want to learn for themselves and achieve to the very best of their abilities. All children are valued as individuals and encouraged to find their best-selves.

The Governors

The Federated Governing Board is made up of representatives from the parent community, staff, local community, Local Authority and the Diocese of Portsmouth; all of whom donate their time and expertise freely for the benefit of the schools. They all bring something different, whether it’s educational, professional or spiritual.
