Stobhillgate First School has a caring ethos based upon nurturing principles where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and embrace challenges. The school focuses upon the development of the whole child through providing opportunities and success in many spheres of school life.

We offer a well-balanced and stimulating curriculum that encourages children to develop a positive attitude to their learning. Teaching and learning are engaging, relevant and responsive to current events, bringing the world into the classroom and taking the classroom out into the world.

We believe that all children have the right to experience the unique and special nature of learning beyond the classroom through a wide range of high quality experiences such as Forest School, workshops, trips and residential visits. Our outdoor learning is integrated into the curriculum to ensure that experiences and sessions are progressive with a continuous sequence of learning both inside and outside.

We set high standards and have high expectations for all our children, both in their learning and behaviour. We strive to ensure that all cultures, faiths and backgrounds are embraced and children show respect for each other and the community.

We aim to ensure our pupils develop enquiring minds and acquire the relevant skills, attitudes and knowledge, including a life-long love of learning, to prepare them as they progress in their education. We also encourage a healthy attitude towards physical activity, diet and emotional well-being through a wide range of experiences and learning opportunities. These include developing a strong set of positive learning behaviours.

The school benefits from a dedicated and hard-working staff who work closely with the parents, pupils and other stakeholders to ensure the school is constantly looking to improve and create the very best learning environment for all those within our school community.
