The oak tree is our school symbol of choice.  We chose the oak as its properties best represented the qualities we cherish.  The oak tree stands tall, broad, sturdy and strong; it takes a long, long time to grow and its stature is all the more awesome on realising that its seed is a tiny acorn.  The oak is resilient, useful and stands strong due to the firm roots which hold it in place.  At Stirchley Primary School, we teach and demonstrate the core values that we believe everyone needs to develop in order to become successful people.
