Background Information

Stakesby Community Primary School was opened in September 1970 and is situated on the west side of Whitby with views across the town to the Abbey and the sea.

It caters for approximately 220 pupils from nursery (age3) to Year 6 (age 11). Onsite preschool provision is also available from the age of 2.

Our extensive grounds have been significantly developed to provide a variety of natural spaces including a Forest School's Woodland Area, Wildlife area, Pond and Orchard. These are all looked after by the children and provide a first-hand educational experience for them.

Forest Schools

We also have a variety of outdoor activity areas including a large school field, a multi- use games area (MUGA) , a mini assault course, an outdoor classroom and an outdoor stage area, which are freely available at breaks and are used as part of the curriculum.

Mini Assault Course

Our grounds have a number of living willow structures to provide shade and visual interest. This one is known as the ‘twigloo’.

Our ICT facilities are excellent and we incorporate ICT skills into our everyday learning through the use of a large, purpose built computer suite; class sets of laptops/tablets; and interactive whiteboards in all classrooms and the Hall which are all internet-linked.

Computing Suite

Our site also hosts the Whitby Children’s Centre, enabling smooth and quick access to a variety of support services for our families and children up to the age of 5.

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
