Welcome to Stithians Community Primary School

A Message from our Headteacher Mr. Illsley Illsley


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Hopefully this website will provide you with an insight into our school, and offer some practical information which will be of use to you as a member of our school community.

Stithians is a happy school where the pupils and staff enjoy learning. The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum, allowing children to shine in many areas. The school provides the children with a comprehensive range of extra-curricular activities to cater for both sports, arts and ICT.

As a school we celebrate successes using the weekly newsletter and assemblies. The children are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and develop personal resilience.


In April 2017 the school was inspected and Ofsted judged us as continuing to be a good school. Stithians School prides itself on providing a happy, safe, secure and supportive learning environment. At Stithians School every child is special and unique. All our children are encouraged to care for and support one another.


·         “Children in the Early Years are well prepared for the demands of Year 1. They are taught well and make good progress across all aspects of their development. Across years 1 and 2 they are making particularly strong progress in learning phonics and this is evident in their reading and writing. As a result, more pupils are going beyond the expected level in reading for their age”.

·         “The skilful way in which teachers consistently plan lessons, meeting not only the needs of the mixed aged classes but also stretching and challenging the most able pupils, has successfully ensured that most groups are making better progress across Key Stage 2.”

·         “Pupil behaviour in and around the school is exemplary. During lessons, pupils across the school are focused, respectful and attentive. All the pupils I spoke to said that they enjoyed school and felt inspired by their learning.”

·         “The school’s curriculum has been reviewed and provides a wide range of interesting and stimulating activities. Tolerance and respect for others and an understanding of democracy are promoted well through the curriculum and, as a result, pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain”.


At the centre of our ethos is the determination that all children can succeed and should enjoy their school experience while achieving their full potential.

I believe that success in Education comes from an effective Home School Partnership. This is achieved through a close and trusting relationship, both working together to promote the aims and ethos of the school.

I consider it to be a great privilege to be the Head teacher of such a busy, vibrant and successful school. If you would like to visit or have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me and arrange a meeting.
