Welcome to Stokeinteignhead Primary School. We are situated in a rural village location, surrounded by countryside and close to the beautiful river Teign estuary and South Devon coastline. At our school, we work together with parents and the local community to enable the children to learn and thrive in a happy, friendly and supportive environment. We are proud of our school and the important part it has played in educating children for over 175 years.
In July 2019, Stokeinteignhead Primary School joined ‘The United Schools Federation’ (USF). This is a federation of six schools – ourselves, St. Michael’s C of E Nursery and Primary School in Kingsteignton, St. Catherine’s C of E Nursery and Primary School in Heathfield, Marldon Primary School, St. Mary’s C of E Primary School in Brixton and Ipplepen Primary School. Our schools work closely together to ensure that the quality of care and education across the partnership is of the highest standard. We are encouraged to keep our school’s unique character but share resources and expertise across our schools. As a federation, we also join together for many collaborative projects, events and activities which allow our children to experience both the benefits of attending a small, village primary school, whilst also enabling them to meet and make friends with children from a variety of different schools in the local area.
At Stokeinteignhead Primary School, we strive to ensure that all children enjoy school, have fun and make good progress in all areas of their learning. We follow the Learning Challenge Curriculum which encourages the children to be curious learners who ask questions in order to understand and engage with the world around them. We believe in encouraging the children to develop their interests in all subjects by offering a broad and balanced curriculum; we offer varied opportunities for children to develop their musical appreciation and skills in creative arts, as well as their sporting skills or interests in history or the world around them.
In addition to our high quality and exciting curriculum, we also provide children with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of enriching extra-curricular activities. These include educational trips, outdoor activities such as caving, gorge scrambling and scuba diving, as well as residential visits for children in Year Two, Four and Six. We are fortunate to have our own school minibuses, which enable us to transport the children safely to different events throughout the year.
As a Rights Respecting school, we work hard to educate the children about their wider responsibilities as global citizens and encourage them to be thoughtful, kind and caring members of the local community. We encourage collective responsibility and use this philosophy to promote kindness and anti-bullying throughout the school, as well as encourage the children to think about the ways in which they can support or combat global issues. We also have an active Eco-Council who help to raise awareness of environmental issues and who help to make decisions about their school in order to effect positive change.
Our school values play an important role in helping us to shape a school in which the children are curious, determined and resourceful learners, as well encourage respectful and thoughtful behaviour to all members of our school community.
We are proud of our children and all their achievements and look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.
