Library Renovation

As we are transforming our school library we thought it would be a great idea to start a blog to keep everyone updated with the project.

Over the coming weeks both pupils and staff will be adding articles, so why not take a look?

Welcome

On behalf of the children, staff and governors we wish you a very warm welcome.

At Stanford Junior and Infants 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 of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that support each child in reaching their potential. Visitors comment on our supportive and friendly team and the positive 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.

Head Teacher
