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.

On World Book Day this year we decided to stir things up by giving each child a wooden spoon to decorate as their favourite character from their favourite book. The response was absolutely overwhelming.
They children did an amazing job at collecting sponsorship money from friends and family. We hopped, skipped and jumped our way to raise an amazing £1237.66!
Tim Peake has a very special message.
Thank you for signing up to Rocket Science we hope you are looking forward to taking part.
Our rocket seeds are still due to come back to Earth in March and we will be sending them out to you after the Easter holidays so sit tight! We will let you know nearer the time what day they are likely to arrive so you know to look out for them.
In the meantime, we have a very special message to everyone from Tim himself, up on the International Space Station! The message is to encourage more people to join the project but we thought you might like to see it too!
Be sure to watch it!!!

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.
