Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
On behalf of the children, staff and governors we wish you 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.

We are developing lots of exciting ideas for working outdoors. See what our classes have been doing on our Outdoor Learning page
Have a look at our Curriculum section to see some of the engaging learning opportunities that are created at our school.

Congratulations to the boys for their brilliant victory in the Gradeley Cup semi-final against Edward Heneage Academy. After a close first half where both teams exchanged the lead the Stanford boys started to take control in the final quarter to win 8 – 4. A great team effort overall, against a well organised and physical opposition, was aided by a fantastic individual performance from George Etherington up front who scored several stunning goals. George was supported brilliantly by Louis Boyd and Connor Haigh who worked tirelessly in midfield; Jack Adams, Bradley Fryatt and Dylan Tierney were all well-disciplined to provide a solid defence; great displays by Harrison Reeve and Noah Lawson, capped off by a goalkeeping master class from Ryan Coleman. Well done boys – next stop Blundell Park!
As the Grimsby Town players made their way to Wembley Stadium they can be seen reading our letters of good luck.
Perhaps our positive thoughts and fabulous letters really did help to inspire them to victory!
Well done to all of the players. Team Stanford knew that you could do it.
The school nurse now has a duty line between 3-5pm. Parents can contact the nurse on 01472 323660 in order to gain advice and support.

We are pleased to inform you that Stanford has received the Bronze Award as part of the Healthy Place Award scheme. Thanks to Mrs Groves for co-ordinating this work and to the Healthy Place Team for their support. We are now well on our way to achieving the Silver Award.
Also, we have been awarded the Green Tree Silver Award. To gain this award we took part in "Switch- off Fortnight” to raise awareness of reducing CO2 emissions, we completed a school survey on how we use outdoor learning, visited a woodland and presented pictures and aspects of our learning to the woodland trust, recycled Christmas cards and ordered free trees from Woodland Trust ready for planting in the Spring.
We are really proud that our recent Ofsted Inspection confirmed what everyone has been working hard to achieve, with an overall rating of Good for our school. You can see a summary of their findings in our letter to parents, or read the full Ofsted report.
Our Governors have set up an online suggestion box for any comments or suggestions you might have.
