Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
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.

“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.”

This week, John Smith from the Laceby British Legion came to Stanford to talk to us about how important the Poppy Appeal is. We learnt about the symbolism of the Poppy flower - the red to show the blood loss on the battlefields and the black to show grief that the world endured due to the wars. We also learnt about how we can help to raise funds and support The British Legion so that they can continue to help to support veterans and also to help future generations to never forget the sacrifices that were made.
Our Head Pupils will be visiting each class every day until Thursday 11th November (Armistice Day) with the merchandise from The Poppy Appeal. Cash or Scopay donations can be made.
Our latest Be Safe, Be Seen was a huge success! Mrs Wink, one of our Governors was at this event and said:
This event was a true Community event. 58 bags of reflectors, lights and torches were given out to children of all ages. Parents came along with their bikes and the team managed to look at every bike regardless if an appointment had been made.
It was a joy to talk to parents and grandparents who appreciated the opportunity to have their bikes checked so they had the reassurance that their bikes were safe to ride 🚴
Another fantastic tournament with our Year 4 and 5 football team. The team were amazing, played with skill and dedication - could not be more proud. Thanks for the support. Great evening!
Thank you so much for your recent donation of Harvest Festival Food, it really is appreciated by everyone at Harbour Place
Well done to all!

They have made posters to put around school and will also be visiting each class to share why reading is so important and how fantastic our new online app is.
Well done to all of the pupils who have been successfully logging their home reading this term.
