Welcome to Stanford Junior and Infant School

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.

Peer Mentors Assembly on Relationships

Our wonderful Peer Mentors delivered an assembly to the whole school, alongside Children’s mental health week, around the theme of relationships.

The Peer Mentor group had identified that relationship / friendship difficulties was something that pupils needed support with and decided that they would like to do something to help the school in this area.

The group met with Zowie on a number of occasions to plan a special assembly that the group would deliver to all pupils at Stanford School.

As the theme for this years Children’s Mental health week is ‘My voice matters’ it was felt an excellent opportunity to demonstrate this by the group delivering an assembly to help teach their fellow students  key skills and strategies to help use their voices to talk to people about how they are feeling and also resolve any conflicts.

All of the teachers, pupils (and Zowie from Compass Go) were unbelievably proud of the group and wanted to share what a fantastic assembly this was!  An important message delivered by the pupils for Stanford School, the community and parent and carers- well done!

ECO Group - Pre-loved Sale

Our ECO group have recently discussed how we can recycle more in school. With us already having focused on recycling waste they decided to focus on pre-loved jumpers and cardigans. Today they put their plan into action at the Year 2 learning share. We hope to do this again at more upcoming events in school to promote recycling and sustainability.

Remember to bring 50p if you would like to purchase a pre-loved jumper or cardigan!
Well done ECO warriors!

"Ask For Jesse"

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).

Parking at School: a message from the Road Safety Education Team

“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.

  1. Yellow zig zag lines outside schools indicate the length of road where stopping is strictly prohibited during the times shown on the upright sign. In the case of Stanford School vehicles must not stop on these markings Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.00am to 9.00am and 3pm to 4pm. Any vehicle which is observed to be stopped on the zig zags may receive an instant Penalty Charge Notice.  The zig zags lines are there to safeguard children’s lives as they allow a clear view of the road.
  2. The Single Yellow Line near the school indicates that drivers must not wait in these areas and are much the same as a double yellow line except they only apply during certain times. The hours of operation of the Single Yellow Line restrictions in this area are Monday to Friday 8am-5pm. Drivers are allowed to stop on Single Yellow Lines to drop off or pick up passengers however, this should only be where the driver feels it is safe to do so and the vehicle should only be stopped for as long as it takes to get the passenger in or out of the vehicle. If parents wish to accompany their child into school we would strongly advise they park in a location that is not subject to any parking restrictions, in order to avoid receiving a Penalty Charge Notice.

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.”

Kind regards,

 

ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION TEAM
