Welcome to Staveley CE Primary School

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to welcome you to Staveley CE Primary School.

We are very proud of our village school which stands in beautiful grounds surrounded by hills, fields and trees. We have strong links within the local community and we work closely with St James’ Church situated next door to school.

Our Core Christian Values of Friendship, Respect, Compassion, Thankfulness, Courage and Service are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to developing a love of learning in all our children.

Our School Vision;

We love to learn. We learn to love, embraces loving one another as Jesus loved us. We strive to recognise our flocks' individual gifts and celebrate these gifts in a caring, loving and Christian environment. We aspire to create a community of hope filled, lifelong learners who are empowered to embrace challenge and can influence positive change in the world.

Our curriculum covers the requirements of the National Curriculum as well as offering our children a wide range of experiences including exciting trips and Residential visits, Outdoor and Adventurous Activity Days, Theme Weeks and the use of our extensive grounds.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection – April 2019 recognised this stating that; "Pupils benefit from a rich curriculum that is carefully planned to meet their needs and interests." "The school is a warm, welcoming and positive learning environment where the dedicated staff and Governors work hard to ensure that children are happy, safe and proud to be a part of Staveley Primary School."

We hope the information included on this website gives you a flavour of the special place Staveley CE Primary School is.

If there is anything else you would like to know please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you are a prospective parent we would be happy to take you on a tour, please call the School Office to arrange this.
