Welcome to Stramongate Primary School
Message from the Head Teacher - Matt Beresford
Welcome to our website. I hope it will begin to give you a small picture of our wonderful school and show you some of the many opportunities available for our children and families. Our Facebook page has day to day successes and it really 'shows off' how our children thrive and have lots of opportunities which enhance and embed the curriculum. Please contact our admin team to arrange a school tour during the day or after school. Stramongate Primary School is a friendly school wanting to do the very best for every child, safely and in a caring environment. We are very keen, from the outset, to work in close collaboration with our families -we all want the best for our children!
At Stramongate we place each child, their welfare and learning, at the centre of our educational thinking and endeavour to cater for the individual needs of our pupils. We aim to challenge and support children to do their best – both socially and academically – and to provide many opportunities to take part in the full life of the School including: sporting events for all, extension lessons with local secondary schools, numerous after-school activity clubs such as art club and sports clubs, and participation in various community music events.
Stramongate is an academy primary school for children from the ages of four to eleven, with approximately three hundred pupils on roll, and the potential to admit up to sixty children each year into Reception. We also provide on-site nursery provision with a nursery breakfast club starting at 7:45am, as well as ‘wrap-around’ care facilities for children in the main school and The Hub, 07:45am- 6pm.
The School is managed through its Governing Board, which meets at least once a term. Working with myself, the Board uses a structure of committees to ensure effective planning, monitoring and evaluation of standards, with the aim of meeting our shared Vision for our School.
If you would like to take on a more active role in School through the Governing Board, The Friends of Stramongate School (Parent Teacher Association) or by volunteering in class, or supporting visits, we would be delighted – typically, Parents help children with reading, technology, sport and a whole host of other activities. Please ask your child’s teacher for any further details.
Stramongate School has provided high quality educational opportunities for the children of Kendal for over 300 years and staff, Parents and children together work hard to maintain our special place in the heart of our wider community.
We look forward to working with you towards fulfilling your children’s potential, and preparing them for their next step in schooling.
