Overview

At Stone C of E School we teach and encourage transferable skills for independent life-long learning. We have shaped our curriculum to reflect the ethos, aims and values of our school, which is summarised in our vision:

Through our Christian values we inspire a love of learning, the desire to create and the courage to innovate: preparing children for an ever-changing world.

We are proud of our 'Skills for Life' curriculum which is packed with creative, inspirational, meaningful learning opportunities. Our Topic based approach organises units of work around a half termly theme. This enables children to see ‘the big picture’ of their learning and make connections through and across different subjects.

In every year group throughout the school our teachers plan a series of topic-based approaches to learning which are based on the 2014 National Curriculum and firmly rooted upon a set of skills that are progressive. To add the wow factor to these topics we have built in a ‘Wow day’ into each half-termly topic. Each ‘Wow day’ will be a hands-on experience or really exciting visit/visitor that will ignite the children’s desire to learn and bring our learning to life.

On each class page you will find the long term Curriculum plan for the year as well as half termly Topic overviews that will provide more detail as to what objectives will be covered in each half term.

If you would like more information about how we teach each subject, and who is responsible for that subject, please refer to the individual subject pages.
