The governors and staff recognise that the School is at the centre of our community. We aim to encourage our children to develop a confident self-esteem and to respect all ethnic identities, or racial and cultural traditions and further will aim to attain the highest individual goals via a broad, well-balanced and high quality education.
The children and adults of Stockton Heath Primary School extend a welcome to you.
The numbers on roll in September 2004 - 387
In September 2004 there will be 14 mainstream classes. The average class size for the academic year is 30 pupils. The school has a two form entry.
Each class teacher is responsible for teaching the whole curriculum, general administration and pastoral care of the children in their class. However, there is a certain element of specialised teaching and movement of pupils between teachers.
Key Stage 1 pupils are taught for 21 hours per week
Key Stage 2 pupils are taught for 23.5 hours per week.
These teaching hours include R.E. and part of the statutory daily act of worship, but not registration, lunch and break times.
Each child's achievements are valued. Their strengths and weaknesses are carefully considered and children identified as having special educational needs will be sensitively taught within mainstream classes. Where more specialised help is required the Governors employ Mrs Davis, Mrs Shaikh and Mrs Speed to support both the individual child and the class teachers. In addition advice and support is available through the Authority's Pupil Support Services. Parents are always consulted prior to any consultations with the Hearing Support Team, Educational Psychologist or other outside Agencies.
The school supports the Borough by providing an 8-place Enhanced Provision classroom for children with a wide variety of special needs. The work in this special class is highly valued within the Authority and plays an important role in the lives of the children, parents and staff at Stockton Heath School.
