Stock Church of England Primary School is a village school with a hard working staff and a caring atmosphere. We aim to provide an industrious but stimulating environment where all children can take pride in their achievements and value the achievements of others. The school values its Christian ethos, its family atmosphere, the strong community links and the support it receives from the Parish Church.

In June 2017 the school also had a church inspection by the Diocese of Chelmsford and the school achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating. In February 2017 the school underwent a very positive OFSTED inspection where the school achieved a rating of ‘good’ in all areas. The inspection was completed under the new framework, published in January 2012, and was conducted over two days.
