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.
Our top 3 Classes this week are:
'We are far more united and have far more In common than that which divides us' Jo Cox
On Friday 16th June 2017 we will be holding a coffee morning as part of the national event organised in memory of Jo Cox and what she stood for. Recent tragic events in Manchester have also touched the pupils at our school and we feel it would be a positive way to recognise the importance of all communities working together.
Please donate a cake (nut free) if you can and pop alone from 10am - 11.30am on the 16th June to help ensure this important message is one we support at Stanford. We will be also creating a 'What We Love' wall during the morring as a chance to remind ourselves of what we have In common and share what we love about where we live.
Please check out the report in the Grimsby Telegraph (May 11th) regarding Stanford’s success in being awarded the ‘Quality Mark Award’ from the national education charity ‘Achievement for All.’ We are all delighted with the recognition regarding the positive relationship with parents, the early intervention and quality provision in place and the positive impact on pupil outcomes. Well done to Miss Wilson and the Foundation Stage team.
Last term Barley class wrote letters to local companies to see if they could help us in our quest to raise funds to buy a new Maths resource called Numicon. We have had some fabulous responses and donations that will be enabling us to buy these new resources. We would like to say a huge thank you to:
Marshalls BMW, Cristal Global, Auto Trail, Total LOR, MKM Builders, Danny Robinson Joinery, Ocean Blue Logistics and The Wolds for their kind donations.
At Stanford road safety and healthy choices are important to us. Pupils and community members help make our monthly ‘Sticker Days’ a real success. Well done to all the families who chose to walk, bike, or scoot to school. We really appreciate the families that choose to park safely either in the Stanford Centre or nearby car parks to ensure congestion at Stanford is reduced. Pupils really enjoy the fresh air in the morning and knowing they can come to school safely. Thank you for your support especially to the Governors, Community Members, Parish Councillors, Connor ( Head Boy,) Abi (Head Girl) and staff who give their time to support this event and help give out the stickers!
Here are our latest Maths Challenge Winners who created square number patterns!
