Great Staughton Primary Academy is situated in a peaceful rural location in the Huntingdonshire district of Cambridgeshire. The opportunities for quality teaching and learning are enhanced through easy access to the natural environment. In total we have 5 classrooms, each furnished with touch-screen white boards and access to the internet. The classrooms are situated around the main hall and are served by three separate toilet and cloakroom areas. Our reception classroom has an extensive, partly covered, outdoor area. Two of the classrooms are used as group rooms with one housing our new children’s kitchen. We have a separate dining area along with a dedicated library room and a kiln room. Outside we have a large playground to the front with access to an outside learning area complete with Yurt. Behind the school is a playing field, which is used during dry weather. We also have an environmental area with a wildlife pond, which provides an opportunity for the children to play and learn in natural surroundings. Our environmental area includes a vegetable garden where children have an opportunity to grow food which is shared with others in school. We have an on-site nursery run by Spice Childcare, which offers a breakfast club and after-school activities. We also have an on-site pre-school operated by Piglets Pre-School.
