Keeping your children
safe online

Welcome to Stanford Junior and Infant School

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.

Mrs L Hackfath
Head Teacher

Our Head Girls and Head BoyHello, our names are Ethan and Jasmin and we are Year 6 pupils-- and Head Boy and Girl here at Stanford Junior and Infant school.

Our school is a friendly and caring environment where we pride ourselves in caring for others. We are also a very safe and healthy school, where we provide healthy meals and activities throughout our curriculum. We are very lucky as we have a breakfast club where we pupils of all ages can attend and take part in fun warm ups and then have a balanced, healthy breakfast with all our school friends! We also have a Tuck Shop every Friday, where pupils make and bake healthy snacks to sell during morning break. This is proving to be successful with promoting a balanced diet.

Each class in the school has a themed immersive welcome, which can either link to our Topic or link to our Power of Reading book. These immersive welcomes engage us in our learning, encourages us to ask questions and be critical thinkers- one of our learning powers! Our Learning powers are part of our language of learning and consist of: resilience is strength, reflective learner, inspire and be inspired, make connections, critical thinker, show independence and problem solver. We are encouraged to use these in our learning and in our behaviours. It also shows how we can use these out of school too. As well as our Learning Powers we use an exciting system that again encourages us to be independent learners, this is our Brain, Board, Buddy. It is used confidently with all pupils who take great pride in their independence and not always asking the teacher for help.

We are sure you will get a great education here at Stanford school as we have many exciting working walls that showcase our learning journeys in classrooms and around the school.  We have an exciting reading challenge which encourages pupils to read at least three times a week or more and celebrate our love for reading.  The class with the highest percentage wins a new book for their class room! We are also developing a Lunch time Reading club to encourage others to love reading.

Pupils at Stanford School are active participants in School life. We take on a wide range of monitor roles that supports staff and pupils. Some of the roles include prefects, assembly buddies and lunchtimes helpers- these monitors helps support the pupils during break, assemblies and lunch times. Other roles include ICT monitors, playground buddies, team captains and polite point monitors… the list is endless!

We have a lovely nature area which teaches younger pupils about wildlife and we love our outdoor learning. Recently, we won a grant that will help us develop our Nature area even further. We also have many educational trips such as museum trips, castle trips and many more! We encourage residential trips for older pupils where year 5 and year 6 pupils go on residential trips like PGL, Kingswood, York and London!  

We have so many more opportunities here at this amazing school and we would love to share them on our website. We hope you enjoy exploring our pages!

Thank you for your time
Ethan and Jasmin

Litter Picking

 Such a dedicated and responsible litter picking team – they look after our environment and dispose of any litter that may have blown in. They give up their break times willingly and work together. James says that it is favourite job in school! Well done to the year 5 group for motivating the younger pupils to take part. Mrs Hackfath is really impressed.

Inter-School Swimming Gala

A team of over 20 eager pupils took part in an Inter-School Swimming Gala event on 25th May (the first that we have attended in several years). The children displayed brilliant perseverance and excellent competitive spirit. We were very proud of how they supported each other in the different races and we had several children achieving first, second and third place in their respective heats. Everyone received a medal and certificate for taking part.

Olympic Visitor James Kirton

The children at Stanford were treated to a very exciting visitor at the end of term. James Kirton – a former Olympic athlete – came to talk to the children. He delivered an inspirational assembly to teach the children about perseverance and aiming for ambitious goals. James told the children about his experience as an Olympic swimmer – and what wonderful timing, as some pupils attended a swimming gala that day! Not only that, but he also put the children through their paces as every child took part in a sponsored circuit challenge. Everyone had a great time and it was a very positive morning.

Founders Day

What a wonderful Founder’s Day – it is so special for the community to come together to celebrate Stanford School’s birthday! Thanks you to Mr Lingard and Mrs Brumfield for supporting the assembly in the morning and to Rev Pam for leading the Church service at St Margaret’s. Our pupils spoke about the special heritage of our school, their reflections of Stanford and their hopes for the future. We were so proud of the singing and viola group. The high tea was also beautiful with over 60 guests enjoying the day.
