Our school is situated in beautiful, stonewalled grounds at the centre of the vibrant and attractive village of Stonesfield. It is at the heart of village life. Our community is a valuable educational resource and we take every opportunity to make use of local expertise in school. Whenever possible we use the wonderful surrounding countryside as part of our curriculum, studying the river, the woods and also the wealth of the fossils found locally.
We pride ourselves on providing an environment in which everyone, both children and adults, feels valued and nurtured so that they can learn, develop and progress to reach their potential. We provide a rich and creative curriculum so that our pupils needs are met 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 and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the policies section of this site.
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 Ben Trevail (Headteacher). The Governors with responsibility for safeguarding in our school are Sue Corrigan and Julie Curran.
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.
