Our Curriculum


Our Intent, Implementation and Impact:

At Stone Church of England Combined School, we teach and encourage skills that will be useful throughout the children’s lives. These transferable skills are the 5 Rs: Responsibility, Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness, Resilience and Readiness. Challenge is built into the curriculum reflecting our Christian vision:

‘Love one another as I have loved you…’ (John 13: 34-35) helping each other to reach for the stars.

We are proud of our 'Skills for Life' curriculum which is packed with creative, inspirational, meaningful learning opportunities. You will find the Curriculum Promise, Intent and Implementation of our curriculum below.

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. Teaching and learning is based on the 2014 National Curriculum and firmly rooted upon a set of knowledge and skills that are progressive.

Our Trips/Wow Day Planner: 

To add the wow factor to these topics we have built in a ‘Wow day’ into each half-termly topic. Each ‘Wow day’ is either a trip, hands-on experience or really exciting visit/visitor that will ignite the children’s desire to learn and bring our learning to life. Educational visits and learning experiences have been carefully mapped to ensure pupils are gaining wider opportunities across all subjects.

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 which objectives will be covered in each half term.

Each subject page will tell you which teacher is responsible for that subject as well as the intent, implementation and impact for the subject. If you would like any further information about the curriculum please email: for the attention of the appropriate subject leader.
