Welcome to Stockham Primary School
We cater for approximately 208 children aged from 4 to 11 years, most of whom live in west Wantage. The school was built in 1971 but has now been totally refurbished providing an excellent teaching environment for the children and adults who work here. Our school vision is for every child to be 'Soaring high' and achieving their best.
Our last Ofsted report (December 2013) found that teaching and behaviour was consistently of a high standard. “Teaching across the school is consistently good and leads to good progress for all pupils. The school provides an inclusive, welcoming atmosphere with all pupils’ good achievement as its priority. Pupils behave well and are keen and enthusiastic about their school.”
There are 7 classes in the school, a foundation class, two infant classes, two lower junior and two upper junior classes. The staff are responsible for the full curriculum for their class but also enjoy co-operative teaching and sharing of expertise. This encourages a co-operative style of working which gives the children contact with a wider range of adults, nurturing the family feel of the school. We feel that this strongly contributes to the caring ethos of the school.
