Head Teacher’s Welcome
Welcome to our website, we hope you find it a useful and informative introduction to all aspects of life at Vernon Park.
Our school has been situated on this site, in the heart of Stockport since January 1909, becoming the primary school it is today in 1958. As a primary school we are passionate about educating over 300 children aged between 3 and 11 every day. We welcome and encourage families to work with us, so that the children can benefit fully from the outstanding education that we provide, we value and encourage their support. Our open door policy means that we welcome parents / carers suggestions, concerns or comments regarding how we can improve.
Our team of dedicated staff all contribute to making sure the children are the best that they can be and we work tirelessly for the good of them all. We are an inclusive school and children here make outstanding progress both educationally and emotionally and leave equipped with the skills and knowledge to achieve excellence in their chosen pathways.
We hope our website gives you a flavour of our wonderful school; however, we would encourage you to visit to fully appreciate its uniqueness and welcoming atmosphere.
Chair of Governors Welcome
Welcome to Vernon Park Primary School. We pride ourselves on being a caring school which helps all its children to succeed in an inclusive and supportive environment.
School is about children achieving their potential in the more formal subjects such as maths, English and reading but also in the wider sense with regards to science, music, the arts and learning life skills. It is about enjoying learning and working with others, both children and the adults who support us. We strive to deliver an exciting and innovative curriculum which develops the whole child, using a range of learning activities and life experiences so that every child can achieve.
As a child, I went to both Primary School and Comprehensive School in Stockport and benefited from learning from teachers who not only enthused pupils to learn but also encouraged them to be forever curious and to be lifelong learners. Those ideas underpin everything about Vernon Park Primary School.
Vernon Park Primary is a trailblazer in being the first school in Stockport to create a Governing Body Wellbeing Committee, with a parallel Staff Wellbeing Committee. This is because the wellbeing of pupils, parents and staff is paramount to everyone associated with this splendid school.
The Governing Body, Head Teacher, Senior Leadership team and all teachers and staff at Vernon Park Primary School are passionate about and committed to ensuring that each child has fun, learns and achieves their best.
