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.
We value achievement and attainment. In recognition of this we have been awarded the DfES Basic Skills award. We have also been awarded the DfES active Mark for exceptional delivery of the National Sport Strategy and the CITB Gold Award for developing pupils' economic awareness.
We strive to ensure that all children receive a rich, broad and balanced curriculum. We promote 'Adventurous Learning' by working in partnership with services across the City - Libraries, Museums, Galleries and Leisure Services.
activities include: Visits to museums, libraries, art galleries, sports centres such as the Dewa museum, Speke Hall, Greenacres Farm, Croxteth Country Park, the Fire Station, City tours, CITB, Parklands CLC, University of Liverpool, the Liverpool Cathedrals, the Imperial War Museum, The Lowry Gallery etc.
Children enjoy residential trips, inter school events with a range of primary and special schools, 'Wake Up Shake Up sessions' daily to promote overall fitness, music tuition and 'Quiet Place' activities.
We welcome visiting artists, story tellers, musicians, specialist sports coaches, and even Olympic athletes to our school to broaden the children's experiences and to ensure excellence and enjoyment.
Through the School Sport Partnership we enhance the provision for PE and the variety of sports offered to children. We promote health and fitness through our curriculum and extra curricular activities. The school 'block race' is a sight to behold - every child participates and sets their own targets for improvement - thus fitness is promoted in an enjoyable and fun way!
The Young Leaders Programme has provided opportunity for pupils to develop their leadership skills this year and promote active play in our playgrounds. The School Council, Peer Mentors and Eco Warriors support and promote our school ethos and are proud to represent our school.
At Stockton Wood we are committed to lifelong learning. Our positive and inclusive ethos fosters the development of respectful and responsible individuals within a secure, caring and happy environment.

We are proud to be members of the South Liverpool Learning Network. Working in partnership with we have shared a common goal, which is to raise standards of achievement and attainment.
