About Our School
We are very proud of being a school where the over-riding aim is to create a happy, stimulating and relaxed learning environment that promotes the development of self-confidence and good relationships. In this way, children achieve to high standards academically and socially as well as broadening their life experiences and cultural awareness.
Little Stoke School is a purposeful learning community where both adults and children can develop learning skills, understanding and awareness. We expect high levels of achievement from everyone and encourage an attitude of hard work and responsibility. We aim to identify learning needs effectively and support individuals well; standing alongside children as they develop.
We believe that ‘ability’ is not a fixed concept; it can be encouraged and developed to ensure that all children from all backgrounds are able to dream, plan and achieve. We are a tolerant learning community that, within limits, will enable children to make mistakes and learn from them in order to develop resilience and determination. We want our children to have the highest aspirations in life and to have an open mind to the way their lives may change and develop. Further information about the school values and learning characteristics can be found on our curriculum page.
We believe that, unless shown otherwise, parents know their children best. We work closely with families to ensure the school aims are met, providing high levels of care, pastoral support, advice and guidance. We strongly value the relationship we have with our parents and recognise that effective partnerships are essential. Our high quality links with parents has led to the school achieving the Leading Parent Partnership Award 2017-2020.
We believe in self-expression and the importance of children being able to form opinions, socialise and speak confidently, communicate well and link ideas creatively. Our approaches to behaviour management focuses on developing self-awareness, responsibility and citizenship.
