Welcome to our school website. There is plenty of information available here about our wonderful school but if you are interested in a school place for your child we would love to show you around in person. Our school is situated in beautiful, stonewalled grounds at the centre of our vibrant and attractive village. Please contact the school office on 01993 891687 to arrange a tour.
We pride ourselves on providing an environment in which everyone is valued. We are a nurturing, family school and we believe in developing the whole child. We look to build strong foundations in English and Maths, teach a balanced curriculum based around our local area, while focusing on developing life skills and a love of our natural environment through our Forest School. We have high academic expectations for every child as can be seen in our strong academic outcomes. Our curriculum is rich and designed to meet the needs of our pupils through a combination of great teaching and exciting learning experiences. We aim to develop knowledgeable and articulate citizens of the future who understand the big issues facing our planet and have the passion and skills to make a difference.
We are learning together to achieve our best.

“I could tell this was a happy, caring school from the minute I walked in.”
“Everything here just smiles at you.”
Stonesfield Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Matt Jarvis and Anne Ede is our Deputy Safeguarding Lead . The governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Katherine Spencer.
If you have any concerns about a child please contact Matt Jarvis Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Photographs and Videos
Whilst lots of parents and carers really enjoy seeing photos and videos of their children’s school life we are very mindful of our duty of care towards all our pupils. We take the issue of safeguarding very seriously and this includes the use of photographic and video images.
Any photographs or videos taken by parents, carers and relatives at school productions, sports days or other events are for the enjoyment of individual families. They must not be used in any way that could potentially place a child at risk. This would include publishing images in any form of print or on the internet including social networking sites. This is emphasised before concerts and shows etc.
We understand that in exceptional circumstances a parent or carer may not wish their child to be photographed or videoed in this way. If this is the case then please contact the headteacher to discuss how this can be best achieved.
