Believe - Discover - Aspire
Welcome to Stalbridge Church of England Primary School Web Site
We are a 'Good' school, Ofsted March 2017 and a SIAMS Excellent school ( November 2019).
Our school is a small, welcoming and inclusive place to be, with a family feel. We are one form entry, with 179 children on roll. It has a long history within the village, with many generations having attended here. Our facilities include: an outdoor swimming pool, an environmental area and an ICT suite. We have a strong partnership with parents and carers, which allow us to work together to provide the very best education for our children. We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, where all pupils can achieve their best. We recognise our place in the community. We have close links with the Church including attending church every month.
Our Christian values ; Believe- Discover -Aspire- encompass everything that we do.
What do Ofsted inspectors say?
' This is a nurturing, inclusive school where mutual respect and love permeate all aspects of daily life... There is a broad and balanced curriculum which is engaging and exciting. .. Academic attainment and progress are at least in line, and often above, the nationally expected standards.' SIAMS 2019
"This is a happy school where pupils learn, play and mix well. Pupils take an active role in the school, for example through the school council and eco-council, and their views are valued by staff. Pupils are respected and trusted. Pupils are proud of the school and reflect the school’s values through their general behaviour and conduct throughout the day" (Ofsted Inspection, March 2017)

Our school prayer:
Lord God, we give you thanks for this wonderful world,
and for the gift of this school,
and for all who share in our life together.
Thank you that you believe in us to grow and develop our gifts.
Help us to believe in ourselves and in you
so that we can realise the gifts and talents
you have given us.
Give us, we pray, a creative curiosity
so that we can discover more of your wonder
and purpose for our lives.
Lord God, we are part of your creation which is very good.
Bless us with courage to aspire for all that is good
and builds up our common life.
Lord God, be our vision, our hope and our life.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
