Stonegate School

Welcome to Stonegate C. E. Prmary School

Stonegate Church of England Primary School strives to foster an environment where academic achievement, spiritual values, personal growth and responsibility towards others are all nurtured with equal importance. The school motto 'Think of others' is central to the school ethos and encouraged at every opportunity.

Stonegate C.E. Primary School is a small, rural, Church of England Voluntary Controlled School for boys and girls aged 4 to 11. The school, established in the mid-nineteenth century, is situated in the village of Stonegate in the heart of the beautiful High Weald of Sussex. There are currently 108 children at the school, coming from the village and the surrounding area.

Stonegate Church of England Primary School is pleased to inform parents and friends of the school that the church inspection carried out in February 2015 found:

Children are supported by a nurturing and safe environment where Christian values of care for one another, respect and trust are clearly shared by children, parents, staff and governors. The high value that the school places on each child as an individual is shown in the respect that children have for one another and that staff demonstrate in their relationships with the children and parents. Christian values make a significant contribution to the children achieving well, being confident, very positive about their school and in excellent standards of behaviour.

Stonegate Church of England Primary School is pleased to inform parents and friends of the school that the inspection carried out by Ofsted on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th October 2013 found the school to be a 'Good' school. The main headlines are:

  •  Pupils make good progress throughout the school and achieve well in a range of subjects, including English and mathematics. The skills and knowledge they have acquired by the time they leave the school prepare them well for secondary education.
  •  Leaders have improved the quality of teaching, which is consistently good, with examples of outstanding practice.
  •  Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They feel safe in school and have few
    concerns about bullying.
  •  Pupils benefit from a wide range of out-ofschool activities, including many different
    sports, as well as a variety of special events.
  •  The school promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. Staff
    have succeeded in creating a harmonious community in which pupils with different
    abilities and from different backgrounds get on well together.
  •  Governors have an extremely good understanding of the school's performance and
    of the quality of teaching. They provide strong support and rigorous challenge for its leaders.
