Learning Without Limits
Stratford St Mary Primary School is a small village primary, set in approximately three acres of land and situated in the heart of the village. We sit in the Stratford Vale (AONB), on the edge of the Suffolk/Essex border, just off the A12.
We are proud of our little school, our children and our links to the local community. We are committed to enabling every child to ‘Learn without Limits.’ Come and visit us!
At Stratford St Mary Primary School, we take safeguarding very seriously. If you have any concerns about a child in school, please contact the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead who is Mrs Karen Bilner (also PREVENT lead) or the Alternative Designated Officer who is Miss Rachelle Jones. The Designated Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Hilary Cairns.
