Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
The Healthy Places ‘Education’ award is designed to help educational settings in North East Lincolnshire to create a programme of work to promote health, as they act as vehicles to empower individuals to live well where they work, learn and play.
This is a fantastic award for schools and academies to work towards, which not only benefits the children and young people but also has a positive impact on the health of staff, parents/carers and wider community.

Stanford School has achieved the Silver Award for the Healthy Places Scheme. We have shown that we follow an exciting, healthy curriculum, where everybody, children and staff, are encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle. Well done Stanford!
Today got off to a healthy start as we ran a mile round the school field before lessons.
As part of our Healthy Places project we are moving towards earning the Silver award and, as part of this, we are keeping a close eye on Healthy Eating. Next week, Mustard Class will be looking at lunchboxes and awarding stickers to those children who have a healthy and balanced lunchbox. This will begin on Tuesday the 12th July and will continue for the week.
Some of our children in Mustard Class led an Assembly today to remind the school of the importance of eating healthily.
Today Juniper Class came dressed in our onesies to support Typeonesie day. We were given a talk by a class member with type 1 diabetes where we learnt all about the condition and how it affects people. We looked at the equipment needed and got to cuddle the type1diabetes bear which shows all the places where people with diabetes can be injected/tested.
"I didn't realise how hard it must be for her"
"I hope they find a cure"
"I now understand all about type one diabetes and glad that we learnt about it so I know about it."
We launched the Stanford Breakfast Club on Wednesday 3rd June. The children enjoyed a short zumba routine followed by a breakfast of smoothy, cereal and toast. The press arrived to capture the fun and pictures can be found in the Telegraph.
