As the sponsor school of the Stour Academy Trust, we promote collaboration in order to continue the growth and development of God’s children. We are driven by our commitment to the well-being and education of all, enabling us to flourish and become life-long learners. 

Through the miracle of Jesus feeding the 5000, we trust that sharing all we have, will provide for all through the power of God’s love. 

This has been adapted to help the children understand our Christian vision; 

We work together and share the best of ourselves to help everyone around us flourish in every way to become life-long learners. Through the miracle of Jesus feeding the 5000, we trust that sharing all we have will provide for all through the power of God’s love.

We are going PLACES

At Sturry C E Primary School, we are driven by our commitment to create an environment that enables children to flourish. We strive to equip all of God’s children with the values of Participation, Leadership, Ambition, Collaboration, Empathy and Support, giving them the keys to open the various doors, as they journey on the pathway of life in the ever changing world.

An engaging Curriculum that prepares children for the future

We are a Church of England School

A modern approach to teaching and learning

Devices for every child

A close knit community

Purposeful integration of technology

A child-centred, collaborative environment

A caring, supportive and responsive EYFS

A smooth transition from EYFS to KS1

We believe that expecting our 5-year-old children to settle down to formal lessons as soon as they move into Year 1 is wrong. We passionately believe that young children learn best through play and exploration and therefore follow a ‘Continuous Provision’ method to ensure that children experience a smooth transition into more formal teaching. This results in happier, more engaged children, who are able to develop a lifelong love of learning.
