Welcome to Stockbridge Village Primary School

About our school
Stockbridge Village Primary is a school committed to ‘learning without limits’. This means we believe that there is more in everyone than we think.
Labels for children can inadvertently limit our expectations of them, but here at Stockbridge Village Primary (SVP), we believe every child is intelligent and extraordinary. We want all our children to leave our school with the knowledge, beliefs and skills they will need to lead a flourishing life; and to have the disposition to help others’ to do so too.
To make this happen we believe:
- All children can be trusted to learn if the conditions for learning are right.
- In an ethic of ‘Everybody’.
- Children have the right to participate fully in their lives.
- Courage and compassion are essential for all learning.
- Our curriculum will need to offer all children an unbridled, fearless curiosity for knowledge and understanding of our world.
- Our school is a place that will actively grow hopefulness and ambition.
Our school opened in 2011 and we are very proud of our beautiful building. Our team work to provide school in which our children feel safe, trusted and valued with each child treated as a unique person and encouraged to pursue their passions and interests with courage.
We have very high standards of behaviour and manners in school and visitors always comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere. Therefore our children enjoy school life and we cherish our relationships. This means we have a joyful school environment.
At SVP, we have a highly committed and professional staff who all work tirelessly to ensure that the high standards at school are continuously maintained, whilst delivering engaging, compelling lessons with a broad curriculum. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Nursery and Reception and an expeditionary curriculum from Y1 to Y6, which builds up from the EYFS.
