At Combe Martin Primary School we think it is essential that our pupils are taught an exciting and broad curriculum which inspires a love of learning. We use the planning and assessment support provided through Curriculum Maestro's Cornerstones as a tool to design, deliver and manage our curriculum. It enables us to deliver the curriculum through interesting topics. These topics use effective learning sequences which ensure progression and the sequential development of skills and knowledge.


Our curriculum is a two-year rolling programme, separated into the three learning stages - KS1, LKS2 and UKS2. Each unit of study is truly cross-curricular, which means that the children are totally immersed in the topic each term, gaining a breadth of knowledge. Each topic has geography or history as its driving subject, with companion projects for science and the arts. The curriculum objectives and skills are sequentially taught across the phases, meaning that the children build on strong foundations as they progress through the school. The topics are intentionally designed and chosen to support this
