Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
Mrs Groves led two djembe assemblies with year 3 and 4 pupils – the musical skills, co-operation and listening skills were excellent. Parents, carers and friends of the school joined the assemblies. One visitor commented ,’Thoroughly enjoyed the performance, the children have obviously enjoyed learning to play. Lovely to be invited to come and watch.’ Thank you everyone for making the event so memorable.

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.

Hello, 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

As part of our pupil voice Road Safety Committee we are aiming to improve the percentage of pupils at school who walk, bike or scoot to school. Not only are these really healthy choices but this also helps reduce potential traffic congestion at Cooper Lane. Following recent work and the Ryan Smith Foundation assembly, pupils have been taught how important it is to wear helmets too when biking etc. Please support the school’s work by encouraging pupils to travel to school safely every day and please help reduce congestion. Thank you.
