Stourfield Junior School is a large community school with over 400 pupils and 60 staff. We cater for children in years 3. 4. 5 & 6 with four classes in each year group.

Our aim is that all children at the school grow into responsible, caring members of society who are confident, independent, lifelong learners. We are a tremendously nurturing and inclusive school.

We believe that pupil performance and well-being go hand in hand and that we must meet the needs of all our children so that they can achieve their potential, socially, emotionally and academically.


The curriculum at Stourfield Junior School aims to:

a) “promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development of pupils.”

b) “prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life”.

To achieve these aims the Governing Body has adopted curriculum guidelines published by the LEA in addition to the National Curriculum. The Education Reform Act of 1988 requires us to teach the National Curriculum at Key Stage Two. There are the core subjects - English, Maths, Science I.C.T. and the foundation subjects - History, Geography, Art, Music, Physical Education and Technology.

The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority has published schemes of work for all National Curriculum subjects and these have been adopted and adapted by the school. Year group teams develop detailed medium-term planning from the QCA documents under the guidance of subject co-ordinators.

Increasingly, subjects are taught separately in order to ensure that the essential skills are acquired. However, we do attempt to forge links wherever possible, for example when we are teaching a particular style of factual writing this may be utilised in the follow-up to a history or geography lesson. We also block the timetable so that Science, Technology, Art, History and Geography are taught intensively over a one or two week period rather than for one lesson per week throughout the term. Teaching methods are chosen for their effectiveness and a variety of styles will be used.


The staff at Stourfield are very generous with their spare time organising a large number of clubs and extra curricular activities, such as football, netball, rounders, rugby, cricket, and choir. Some of these activities take place in the lunch hour and the remainder after school. Some are offered for only part of the year. The children are encouraged to participate in as many activities as possible and although they are voluntary, the importance of loyalty and regular attendance is emphasised. (Letter required if unable to attend).

A recent development at Stourfield has been the establishment of links with outside organisations in order to promote activities for our pupils.

Coaches from ‘Team Elite’ provide a variety of sports according to interest including basketball, mini golf, rugby, football, hockey and cricket. Details will be sent to you early in the school year. In addition there is a Bible club, a French club and a Dance club.
