Streatley C of E Primary School
Streatley is a happy, vibrant and outward looking Church of England, Voluntary Controlled primary school with a capacity for 112 pupils from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Fifteen Foundation Stage pupils are admitted each year. Although it traditionally serves the parish of Streatley including Stitchens, Hungerford and Westridge Green, our popularity attracts pupils from far and wide.
Our local environment is much valued and is viewed as an integral part of our school. The school is set in its own grounds on Streatley Hill and is surrounded by National Trust land, situated within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Within the school grounds there is a sports field, playground, banked wooded area, adventure playground and wildlife pond area.
The school has four well equipped classrooms each with modern audio visual equipment. The Foundation/Key Stage 1 department includes two bright and airy classrooms with direct access to a canopied outdoor learning area. The library and two further small teaching rooms for group work. The school also has a well-equipped hall/dining room, which is used for gymnastics, dance, drama, games, music, school events and productions, in addition to acts of collective worship held on a variety of occasions.
A portion of the school grounds has been allocated to Streatley Hill Pre School, which enjoys strong links with the school, enabling successful transition into the school’s foundation class each year.
Our Local Partnerships
Streatley School is a member of The Downs Federation of Small Schools, with established sporting and academic links, which enrich the learning experience of our pupils. We are in catchment for the Downs secondary school (Outstanding).
Our Christian Ethos
A daily act of worship takes place in the form of a whole school or class assembly and an end of term service is held three times a year. All teaching staff lead and take part in Collective Worship, in accordance with the teaching of The Church of England, which bears in mind the age, aptitude and ability of the pupils. A broad approach is taken, in keeping with the Anglican tradition.
We enjoy strong links with our local church team and visits to St Mary’s Church in Streatley are connected to our Religious Education teaching.
Whilst we are a church school with a strong Christian ethos pupils benefit from an inclusive approach to religious culture and we encourage respect and understanding of others’ beliefs.
The school is an integral part of the community. As well as working in partnership with all parents, we are supported by the Friends of Streatley School (FOSS), a parent and guardian volunteer group that arranges extra activities for the children, and undertakes fundraising events for school equipment and projects. Parents and guardians are encouraged to join the committee and/or help with the activities, which include organising the School Fete, infant and junior discos, cake sales, and many other enjoyable occasions.
