Stisted Primary is a Church of England school.  We aim to serve our community by providing the best all-round education, within a

caring Christian family context.  We value the different personalities and talents of our children.  We seek for them all to become confident learners and tolerant principled members of society.

The original school was founded in 1836 to provide a Christian Education for the children of the village and surrounding farm

cottages.  The present building dates from 1872 and is a pleasant white lath and plaster building near the village green and within a conservation area. 

The main building was enlarged in 1963 and now consists of three classrooms with a kitchen adjoining. The school was further

extended and refurbished in 2003 to provide a new school hall, medical room, group room, staff room and toilets.

There are 4 class bases. Pupils start in the Foundation/Reception class and then move into the class for Year 1 and 2. The two junior classes are mixed ages : Year3/4 and Year 5/6.


Education influences and reflects the values of society, and the kind of society we want to be. It is important, therefore, to recognise a broad set of common values and purposes that underpin the school curriculum and the work of schools.


Foremost is a belief in education, at home and at school, as a route to the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical and mental development, and thus the well-being, of the individual. Education is also a route to equality of opportunity for all, a healthy and just democracy, a productive economy, and sustainable development. Education should reflect the enduring values that contribute to these ends. These include valuing ourselves, our families and other relationships, the wider groups to which we belong, the diversity in our society and the environment in which we live. Education should also reaffirm our commitment to the virtues of truth, justice, honesty, trust and a sense of duty.


At the same time, education must enable us to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world in which we live and work. In particular, we need to be prepared to engage as individuals, parents, workers and citizens with economic, social and cultural change, including the continued globalisation of the economy and society, with new work and leisure patterns and with the rapid expansion of communication technologies. The National Curriculum plays an important role in achieving these aims.


The National Curriculum sets out a clear, full and statutory entitlement to learning for all pupils. It determines the content of what will be taught, and sets attainment targets for learning. Not all subjects are statutory at each key stage. It also determines how performance will be assessed and reported.  It is organised on the basis of four key stages.


The National Curriculum applies to pupils of compulsory school age in community and foundation schools, including community special schools and foundation special schools, and voluntary-aided and voluntary-controlled schools.

The National Curriculum subjects that are mandatory at keystages 1 and 2 are as follows:

o       English (Literacy)

o       Mathematics (Numeracy)

o       Science

o       Information and Communication Technology

o       Geography

o       History

o       Design and Technology

o       Art and Design

o       Music

Schools have a responsibility to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils. The National Curriculum is the starting point for planning a school curriculum that meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of pupils.


A statutory inclusion statement on providing effective learning opportunities for all pupils outlines how teachers can modify, as necessary, the National Curriculum programmes of study to provide all pupils with relevant and appropriately challenging work at each key stage. It sets out three principles that are essential to developing a more inclusive curriculum:
