Stoke Fleming Primary School
Welcome to Stoke Fleming Primary School, which is situated in the heart of a busy, vibrant village in the South Hams. Our much loved primary school is the centre of the community, with strong links with our local library, Dartmouth Leisure Centre and of course the beach!
Our school has around 190 children and 30 members of staff. We work together to provide a safe, secure, happy environment for all of our children to learn and thrive in. Our dedicated team have a diverse range of skills to enhance the learning experience for all our children. We aim to meet the needs of each individual child and to provide the opportunities that are essential in supporting the emotional and academic growth of every child in our care.
Children can join our 'Foundation Stage Unit' from two years old, this area of the school has been recently redeveloped and designed to allow our children the broadest range of experience, both in and outdoor and is based on the main school site. This locality and familiarity enhances a smooth transition into Year One for each child. Each class has a main class teacher who takes responsibility for the wellbeing of every child in their care; we believe it is vital that our children feel safe and cared for in school. At the end of Key Stage Two we work hard to ensure a smooth transition into secondary school through a comprehensive programme of visits, and familiarity sessions.
At Stoke Fleming we endeavour to offer our children a wide range of learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We adopt a holistic approach to education and this is most clearly visible through our well planned curriculum and our experiences in and out of school.
We take our children to exciting places to further their learning opportunities, we have close links with Dartmoor and regularly take children of all ages there to explore and to allow our children to put into practice all they have learnt in the classroom.
We allow all of our children opportunities to discover their natural talents and interests, and when we find them we take time to explore and develop them, be it sketching aspects of Dartmoor, playing Samba in our school band, sharing stories with younger members of the school or hand making creative jewellery to sell in our Charity Shop.
Our sporting opportunities are many; we have a keen football and tag rugby team which play other local schools in our learning community regularly, we celebrate our children as individuals and as team players.
