Ethos and Values

‘Believe and Achieve ‘


Our children live in an ever changing world.  Ensuring each and every child is able to fully understand themselves, the skills they have, the approaches they take to learn and the ability to chase their dreams, is vital.  Ensuring every child who is part of Stoke can continue to grow throughout their lives is a true testament to a good education.


Believe and Achieve are key words in this journey.  Both require a deep understanding at a personal level so everyone in our community can share their achievements with pride and celebration, whilst harnessing these successes to believe they can achieve more.


Stoke Primary School promotes high achievement and learning for life by working with children to:

  • Develop enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity
  • Grow the skills to become life-long learners
  • Be flexible and adaptable, embracing the modern world
  • Be able to work independently and collaboratively
  • Achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum
  • Gain advanced technological skills
  • Seek to extend ourselves in mind, body and spirit

We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing quality in:

  • A broad and challenging curriculum
  • An enriching programme of curricular activities and visits
  • a stimulating learning environment
  • a rich, varied and up to date range of learning resources
  • innovative teaching and an investigative approach to learning
  • an ethos of support, challenge and encouragement to succeed
  • learning partnerships between school, home and the community

We demonstrate our commitment to working as a learning community by:

  • striving for continuous improvement in all that we do
  • working collaboratively towards common goals

  • be supportive of the aims of our school, our philosophy and practice
  • contact us if you have any queries, concerns or any issues you wish to discuss
  • attend our parents consultations and be knowledgeable of your child’s progress
  • ensure your child is punctual and attends school regularly
  • keep us fully informed of any changes of circumstances so we can be responsive to your child’s needs
