On behalf of the children, staff and governors we wish your 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 ofteachers, non-teaching and support staff that support each child in reachingtheir potential. Visitors comment on our supportive and friendly team and thepositive 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.

Congratulations to all our pupils who achieved last term’s reading challenge.
Today they all enjoyed their reading reward which was a visit to Stanford Library where they enjoyed stories, discussions, sharing books with friends and ‘afternoon tea’.
Well done to all! I was extremely proud of their behaviour, good manners and enthusiasm on the trip. Let’s hope the next Reading Challenge is just as successful. Good luck everyone.
