From March 8th 2021, Sticklepath is open to all children. Please read and follow the risk assessment below to keep our children and community safe. 

All the latest communication regarding the latest on the Coronavirus situation can be found under Parents/Coronavirus


For further advice please visit PHE website:


What happens if your child is sent home with symptoms of COVID-19 - Government guidance:

If your child begins to feel unwell at school and is showing symptoms of COVID-19, you will be contacted to collect your child from school and asked to get your child tested as quickly as possible.  Until this test comes back, your household would be required to self isolate.  If the test comes back negative, your child can return to school when they are better and your  household will no longer be required to self isolate.

If the test returns positive, your child would be required to self isolate for 10 days. They should follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and must continue to self-isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of their symptoms and then return to school only if they do not have symptoms other than cough or loss of sense of smell/taste. This is because a cough or anosmia can last for several weeks once the infection has gone. The 10-day period starts from the day when they first became ill. If they still have a high temperature, they should continue to self-isolate until their temperature returns to normal. Other members of their household should all self-isolate for the full 10 days from the day after the individual tested positive.

If your child tests positvie at the weekend please contact the school asap by email at   

Growth Mindsets

We are a Growth Mindset School. So what does this mean?

We believe that how intelligent we are isn’t fixed but that through hard work, struggle and embracing mistakes and failure as opportunities to learn, we can all ‘grow our brains smarter’.
We value and celebrate.

At Sticklepath Community Primary Academy we believe – really, truly believe – that every child can succeed and excel through hard work, perseverance and commitment and it is our job, best served in partnership with parents, to enable this to happen.


We are passionate about learning and design the most exciting, relevant and academically challenging learning experiences that enable children to think deeply about the world and their place within it. 

We constantly reflect, practise, question and challenge ourselves and our children to grow and improve. We pride ourselves on our trusting, respectful relationships where everyone feels supported to take risks, learn from their mistakes and become the very best that they can be.

Learning is a journey we are all on and we look forward to welcoming you aboard!
