Children reporting to school council
At Stoke Primary School, we are all very proud of our school! We are known for providing a welcoming and caring atmosphere where children learn confidently in happy surroundings. Great care is taken to provide for the social, moral and educational needs of the individual child. Our school is a place where mutual respect is encouraged and opportunities for challenge are provided. Our children achieve good standards in literacy and mathematics, compared with similar schools, and we are exceptionally proud of their achievements.
The children experience an environment where everyone is encouraged to do their best in order to reach their full potential. During school and after school we offer a range of opportunities for children to develop further skills such as football, art, multisport and music. Whilst ensuring that children receive excellent teaching in Literacy and Mathematics we believe that education should offer more and that most importantly it should be fun!
Stoke Primary is a two form entry first school located in the Stoke area of Coventry comprising of 15 classes from Nursery to Year 6. The main building has undergone major improvements in recent years and we have worked hard to create an extremely bright, colourful and stimulating school. We have good quality equipment for the children to use at playtimes and have also ensured our playground has a canopied area where the children can enjoy shade in the summer months and our Early Years outdoor area has recently been upgraded to support the children’s learning.
We have very close links with the community and participate in a wide range of activities with other local schools and Coventry partnership centres. Our dedicated team of teachers and support staff whose experience, expertise and efforts make the school come alive. We work in partnership with our Governors and parents.
We hope the friendships the children make during their time with us will be long lasting and based on mutual respect and care. We endeavour to prepare children for later life and hopes that their time at Stoke Primary School will not only enable them to achieve high academic standards but also provide them with some happy memories.
Please come along and see our school for yourselves. We hope you will be part of our future and we look forward to working with you.
