The Four Cornerstones (Rotherham Charter) approach is a model for building inclusive, good quality partnerships with children and young people, and their parents and carers. Based on local research it is recognised as best practice in co-production and inclusive practice by national partners such as the DfE and the Council for Disabled Children.

How can our good Cornerstones practice be recognised?

The Genuine Partnerships team uses the Four Cornerstones approach to help develop processes that will embed and recognise high quality partnerships between parents and carers, children and young people, schools, settings and services.

A graduated model has been created which can support you to evaluate your practice at a number of levels.  Click here to view the model. In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the team is also able to offer on-line consultation, training and support.

Genuine Partnerships is working closely with Whole School SEND to create training that will support school leaders, SENDCos and parents/carers to grow area and regional teams able to deliver, support and recognise good Cornerstones practice. If you would like to find more out about this, bespoke support, on-line training or any other aspects of our model please contact us.
