Update 3rd July 2020: Click on link for Newsletter:
Update 29th June 2020: Phase 2 of the wider opening of school is now complete. Our current school capacity has now been met. Capacity has been based upon our school risk assessments in line with Health and Safety guidance we have received.
We currently have children of key worker families and vulnerable children and Year 6 children attending school. All year groups are represented from Nursery through to Year 6. We are reviewing capacity daily and if we are able to invite any other children to return to school we will let you know.
For home learning, please follow Twitter. Families can access this just by going to the Children’s Year Group page on this website or by setting up a Twitter account. We are re sending instructions for setting up a Twitter account and for accessing Oxford Owl Home Reading site. Our next home learning pack will be delivered on Friday, 3rd July.
Arrangements for children returning to school: Click on links below:
Update 22nd June 2020: As part of ‘Phase 2 Wider opening of school’ Year 6 children are the next priority group to be invited to return to school. All Year 6 parents have now been contacted by telephone and asked whether they wish their child to return to school. If parents did not confirm during the telephone call that they wished their child to return to school then they must contact school by Tuesday 23rd June to confirm this.
Return dates and times for each Year 6 group will be sent to homes week beginning 22nd June.
Due to increasing numbers onsite arrangements for entrance to and exit from site will be subject to change please lookout for newsletters and signage around site.
Update 18th June 2020: Liverpool City Council has advised Liverpool Schools that it is now safe to return to their phased approach for the wider opening of schools. We shall commence Phase 2 from 29th June as we are still admitting children of our Key Workers. Parents will be informed week beginning 22nd June which children may attend from 29th June.
The capacity of the school is greatly reduced due to following the social distancing rules and reduced staffing as some staff are required to ‘shield’. We are exploring every avenue to try to increase our capacity including mobile classrooms and marquees!! Unfortunately, we have found they cost many thousands of pounds and therefore are not affordable! We will continue to keep in touch with you by letter, our website, Twitter and by phone.
Look out for our next newsletter and home learning pack which are being delivered on Friday, 19th June.

LATEST CORONAVIRUS UPDATE!
Staying at Home Guidance
STAY HOME! STAY ALERT! SAVE LIVES!
Schools, colleges and early years settings are now closed until further notice as part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus.
46 schools in Liverpool are now ‘Childcare Hubs’. They are open from week days from 9am to 4pm – for children of Critical Key Workers and vulnerable children including those children with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). Some Early Years settings open earlier.
Stockton Wood Primary School is a Childcare Hub (9am – 4pm). We are open week days except for Spring Bank Holidays and May half term holiday.
Children who do not fall into these groups should remain at home with appropriate care.
Clarification regarding who has been identified as a keyworker can be found on Liverpool City Council website:
If you are a keyworker and you are sending your child to our Childcare Hub, please note:
- Parents will need to register on arrival for childcare.
- Children should wear comfortable play wear eg track suits and trainers as they will be taking part in play based and sporting activity. Please bring a bottle of water.
- Lunch will be provided and arrangements going forward will be confirmed.
- Arrangements may change from day to day in response to the changing landscape. Please be ready to respond.
- We are following directives from the City Council and the Government.
Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors identified by the government. Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
Home Learning packs and guidance have been distributed to children and families.

The Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

Congratulations to Ella for being elected as a Junior Lord Mayor 2019 – 20 in our City! Aspiration at the heart of our community!

OFSTED 2015 …behaviour and safety of the children is outstanding, characterised by exemplary conduct around the school and attentive listening.
Welcome to our website.
If you have any suggestions about information that you would like us to display on the website please let us know.
Our school is located on a large attractive site with lots of green space which supports outdoor learning and our school building provides us with excellent facilities including generous ICT and library facilities which support life long learning and a ‘Space for Sports and Arts’ for school and community use. We have a truly excellent learning environment for the children.
Our vision is to ‘Lay the Foundations for Life’ to ensure our children have developed vital skills for the future. Thus we go beyond the National Curriculum providing a value driven curriculum that promotes Restorative Practice, Emotional Well-being and ‘LifeSavers’ – financial education. We strive to raise aspirations, develop talents and to ensure that all children receive a rich, broad and balanced curriculum and we promote ‘adventurous learning’ by working in partnership with services across the City – Libraries, Museums, Galleries and Leisure Services.
We value achievement and attainment. In recognition of this we have been awarded the Basic Skills award on a number of occasions. We have also been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark, the Health and Well-being Award, the School Games Award for delivery of the National Sport Strategy and Investors in Pupils for promoting pupil voice. We are also very proud to have been awarded the Gold Awards for the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark and the Liverpool Counts Numeracy for Life Quality Mark. We are currently preparing for the Arts Mark too to reflect our rich curriculum that provides opportunity and wide ranging experiences for our children.
Such awards reflect our drive for high standards and our aspiration, how hard everyone in our school community works together and the value we place upon the support we receive from our families.
We are committed to keeping children safe. We provide a safe environment in school for the children and promote good behaviour. The curriculum includes materials and activities designed to help children to develop self confidence, healthy attitudes and personal safety. All our staff have received ‘Child Protection’ training.
‘We love to read and count at Stockton Wood!’
