Aviva Grants Voting – Please help the school get £2000 of funding for iPads and STEM Resources

Over the past few years the school has been successful in getting grants for various projects from the Aviva community fund – we have had 4 different grants in total worth £4000 awarded over 3 years for iPads, playground markings, playground stage and some new playground equipment (still to be purchased following the building work). The Parent Council and Friends of Stockbridge School are applying for a grant of £1000 each this year with one to fund new iPads and the other for STEM equipment.


Voting is easy, and takes only 2 minutes, or even less if you’ve previously voted and have an Aviva login. The links to the 2 different projects for voting are below, or within the Aviva Community fund site if you search for ‘Stockbridge’ you will find the 2 projects.

Stockbridge digital skills for life: New ipads – https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-2684

Based on past experience we need over 100 people to vote (equivalent to 1000 votes) for each project to be successful so we need as many people as possible to vote, and all your friends and relatives can vote as well. Please help us by sharing the links to family and friends to help us secure this funding.

We will send out further reminders before voting closes in about 4 weeks and will also hand out flyers to remind people.

Your help and co-operation is much appreciated 🙂

Stockbridge Primary School

Message from Ms Calder-Kelly

It is with great sadness that I am writing to inform you that my last day as Headteacher of Stockbridge Primary will be Friday the 31st August. The Acting Headteacher of Hermitage Park has now been appointed to another school and as such this has speeded up my moving date.

Prior to the Summer, the decision was made by the recruitment panel (which includes 2 parent representatives from the Parent Council and council officials) to re-advertise my post. The post of Headteacher is currently out for advert for the second time and will close on the 26th August. It is hoped that the successful candidate will be in post around the October break.

Miss Kathryn Collier has been asked to take on the post of Acting Headteacher to fill the gap between my leaving and the new Headteacher taking up the post. Miss Collier knows the school extremely well and I could not think of safer hands to leave the school in. I am confident that Miss Collier will do a fantastic job!

Yours sincerely,

Faye Calder-Kelly
