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


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 ou rChristian 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 Intent, Implementation and Impact 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 the2014 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’ is 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.

Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum Promise
At Stone Church of England Combined School, we are committed to providing a purposeful and ambitious curriculum that inspires and excites children, fully prepares them for the next steps in their education and enables them to be active members of the wider community.  Core literacy and numeracy skills are taught to all as a priority to enable all children to reach their full potential. We ensure that our curriculum is accessible to all children, including those with disabilities or special educational needs and that our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.

Our Principles
Everything begins with our three principles which underpin all we do and are woven through our curriculum. They teach children:

  • Christian Values - how to treat others and how to be effective members of the community.

  • Skills for Life - to understand how they learn (metacognition) and the skills they need to be effective lifelong learning.

  • 5 ways to wellbeing - how to look after their own mental health and wellbeing.
