Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
On behalf of the children, staff and governors we wish you a very warm welcome.
At Stanford Junior and Infant School we believe our role is to ensure that all of our children achieve the best they possibly can in an environment that stimulates a love of learning. We support our children to succeed academically, socially, personally and physically. We are extremely proud of our broad and balanced curriculum, which the children are fully engaged in.
The school environment is wonderful and we all ensure our school is a calm and safe place where children feel they are able to ask for support and advice.
Within our village school we continually work hard to keep developing a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that support each child in reaching their potential. Visitors comment on our supportive and friendly team and the positive atmosphere within our school.
We hope, as you visit our website, you will gain a sense of the value that we place in each child and our relentless aim to ensure high standards in all areas. Please feel free to contact the school if you would like any further information. We are always happy to help and look forward to showing you our wonderful school.

We all said a huge 'Thank You' to Mrs. Val Brumfield in a special assembly today as she retires from the school's governing body. Mrs. Brumfield (a former pupil and teacher of the school) has volunteered and supported the school in many many ways over the years:including governor, chair of governors and as a volunteer.
We all thanked her with special gifts, and cards made by all the children.
Thank you once again Mrs. Brumfield!
Healing Academy would like to invite our year 4 and 5 pupils and their parents/carers to their Open Evening on Wednesday 21st June which will include a tour of our Academy. Any year 6s are also welcome if they would like to attend.
These wonderful pupils were the Rights Respecting committee where they impressed our assessor with their knowledge and gained us our Silver award!! Mrs Hackfath, Headteacher said “ I am very proud of this achievement and that we put pupil voice at the heart of our vision and ethos! Our focus on promoting and learning about the UNICEF articles is very important in our curriculum! Thank you to the team, pupils and staff, especially Mr Middleton and Mrs Marsden for leading on this!”
It was great to hear from some of our Year 6 pupils in assembly this morning sharing their ideas on different ways to relax and strategies we could use to help with our mental health and well-being. It has been #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek this week, where we have been proud to support!
Our Mental Health and Well-being information board in school showcases our focus, strategies, agencies that can support and who can help us. Mrs Smith, Deputy Head and our Designated Mental Health Lead, is proud of the work the school does with regards to Wellbeing and mental health ‘ Pupils are able to openly discuss how they are feeling and the different ways they can help their wellbeing.
🌟 🌟 🌟 We are delighted to announce that Stanford Junior and Infant School is to be awarded the Silver Rights Respecting School Award by UNICEF UK. 🌟🌟🌟

Have you heard about Boots' scheme, 'Ask for Jesse'?
Boots UK is working in partnership with The Hygiene Bank to help close the hygiene poverty gap by providing free dental products to vulnerable families.
(Fun fact: Jesse Boot was the son of John Boot, who founded The Boots Company. However, it was Jesse that transformed Boots into a national retailer).
“It has been brought to the attention of the Road Safety Team that parents at this school are parking dangerously and irresponsibly in the area around Stanford School and causing unnecessary problems for residents as well as safety concerns for the children/parents walking to school.
We have scheduled regular visits from the Civil Enforcement Officers to monitor the area and may issue Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) to parents parked in contravention of the markings. These restrictions are in place for the safety of all children/parents at your school.
We thank all parents who comply with current restrictions and would like to take the opportunity to remind all drivers to park legally, safely and with consideration for local residents who live in the area.
The Road Safety team and Stanford School will work closely together to ensure the safety of ALL pupils going to and from school and take the appropriate measures to stop dangerous and illegal parking.”
