Our community

Stoke Row School is fiercely proud of its close ties to the village of Stoke Row and believe the school and community are vital to the success of each other.

 

We regularly use the woodlands surrounding us for Forest school and a range of outside learning opportunities, in all weathers!  And our cross country route uses the recreation ground and woodland, Ocean class pupils get to admire the view twice as they do two circuits of the tough course.  The church was converted for mixed use as a school hall but remains a place of worship for the local congregation and the village hall is a venue for many of our cultural highlights annually.Forest school (6) (598x800)

 

But as important to the physical places we use are the members of the community who support school through volunteering, attending our events and fundraising.  The pupils each year help at the village Christmas lunch and our choir delighted everyone last year with their performance after the meal.  A highlight of summer term 2016 was when Ocean class provided a 1940’s celebratory afternoon for some older members of the Stoke Row community in the village hall.  The children dressed up, danced, performed short sketches from the war and sang songs from days gone by. They really enjoyed chatting with the guests over tea and cake about what it was like living in the 1940’s.

Fundraising is vital to Stoke Row School, as many small village schools to be able to provide additional resources which make such a positive contribution to the learning experience of our pupils. The school parent association, FOSRS, have achieved a huge target of £10,000 is 2015/2016 to secure funding for road signage as we no longer have lollipop person funding.  Our focus for 2016/2017 is ICT hardware and if you can help please do get in touch.
