We said goodbye to headteacher Mrs Sarah Mills in December 2019 after 13 years as head of the school. She will be missed but we all wish her well in her new career.
Stockton on the Forest Primary school is a small yet busy and exciting place in the heart of the village. We pride ourselves in providing a caring, stimulating environment where everyone is valued and recognised for their unique ability and where children are supported and encouraged to develop their full potential.
The school building itself is situated at the end of a tree-lined driveway in the heart of Stockton-on-the-Forest. It enjoys the benefit of extensive and mature grounds that adjoin farmland. The grounds have been developed to accommodate a range of stimulating and enjoyable playtime equipment for children including a tyre park, climbing tower, climbing wall, adventure trail and log walk. There is a hard surfaced playground, which is marked out for football, netball and playtime games and a large grassed area that is predominately used for sports activities and summer time play. The grounds also include an enclosed wildlife area which is used to develop children's knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of nature and the outdoor environment. For children who enjoy quieter activities, our Millennium Garden can be used for reading, drawing and conversation during playtime. Our infant children enjoy the added bonus of an outdoor provision area specifically used as an outdoor learning facility.
Internally, the school comprises four classrooms, a communal computer suite, a well-stocked library, a small room for group teaching, a toilet and shower for use by those with a disability, a school hall and kitchen. We are fortunate to have a large hall that is well equipped with a variety of P.E. apparatus.
We welcome visits from parents and carers and invite those who are considering sending their child to our school to contact the school office to make an appointment.
