Curriculum

Please open the attachments below to find out about the wonderful learning happening at Stone Hill School.

In Key Stages 1 and 2, we follow a thematic approach, looking at exciting topics based around the children’s hobbies and interests. On a Friday morning, the pupils in Key Stage 3 follow a project-based curriculum.  The skills taught through projects have strong links to PSHCE and come under the following headings:  Life Skills, Health, Media, Research, Enterprise, Environmental, School Magazine and Outdoor Education. In Key Stage 4, pupils follow a life skills course each week including independent travel training, discussion around sensitive topics, communication skills, work experience and ASDAN modules. Although our pupils have access to a wide range of accredited learning, no pupils are entered for KS1 Phonics or KS2 and KS4 standard assessment tests.

Friday afternoons we have a celebration assembly at 2 p.m. the school day ends for pupils at 2.30 p.m.

At Stone Hill School we believe that every pupil should have access to maximum curricular opportunities, within the context of their special need.  To achieve this, our aim in planning is to offer a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum, taking account of all statutory requirements and modified to meet their SEN, ensuring entitlement and facilitating inclusion.  We aim to create a climate of success by celebrating achievement and promoting and rewarding positive behaviour.  By these means, we aim to foster independence and social skills in our pupils so that when they need help they will know who to ask, how to ask and have the confidence and ability to ask. Within the curriculum Stone Hill School pupils are set challenging targets, which are Specific, Measurable, Achievable Relevant and Time related (SMART).  In aiming towards these targets, pupils will participate in a wide range of learning activities appropriate to their level of need.  As an integral part of the curriculum, our pupils will also take part in educational, spiritual, cultural and social experiences shared with the wider community on many occasions throughout their school life.  On leaving school at the end of KS4, our pupils will have gained nationally recognised accreditation. Curriculum provision also includes the following:

  • Swimming is offered to pupils up to the end of Year 7.
  • RE is delivered in line with the Doncaster agreed syllabus.  Whole school daily worship is in place in the form of ‘thought for the week’.
  • SMSC and Citizenship are offered to all pupils.
  • Enrichment activities, including out of school visits, residentials, visiting theatre groups, circus skills, horse riding, a variety of sporting activities and a host of other events and activities.
  • As part of PSHCE, breakfast is available every morning, offering a range of healthy cereals, toast and juice or milk.
