The school is an integral part of Stratford St Mary village and the wider community.
St Mary’s church, about half a mile from the school, is regularly visited by the children. Likewise Reverend Paul from the parish is a regular visitor in school, conducting assemblies and spending time with the children.
Next to the church, is Hall Farm. The children make visits to the farm, to walk around the various trails, see the animals during lambing time and to sing carols to their visitors at Christmas time.
Our school is a ‘Friend of Ipswich Town’, linking the school with one of our local football teams.
Premier Sport are regular visitors to our school, providing specialist coaching, after school clubs and also ‘Enrichment Days’.
On our doorstep, about eight miles from the school is the Suffolk Ski Centre. Here our older children are given the opportunity to learn to ski on the three slopes.
