Extracts from the school's OFSTED inspection report,

"The school is a happy and cohesive community. Pupils are keen to learn and they enjoy school. They behave very well and feel safe and secure." 

"Pupils achieve well because the quality of teaching over time is good... and some is outstanding"

"Teachers plan lessons which are stimulating and fun, so that pupils enjoy learning."

"Pupils’ attainment in mathematics has been substantially higher than the national average, and rising, for the past three years."

"..... pupils’ progress in writing has accelerated rapidly, particularly in the older year groups."

"The pupils .... are courteous, keen to learn and behave well in lessons and when moving around the school. Pupils work together cooperatively and listen to each other with respect. They are sensitive to the needs of others and look after their friends well."

A Welcome Message from the Headteacher and

Chair of Governors

The Governors and staff are very proud of Stanford Junior School, rated as "Good" by OFSTED in May 2014. We believe that our school provides a happy, hardworking environment in which every child is supported and encouraged to achieve.

We hope our website gives you an insight into the things that make our school so special. We have put some general information about the school and school life under the various headings on the left.

There are lots of photos of some of the exciting activities and learning that our children experience at Stanford Junior School under "School News". There is also a copy of our prospectus in the “For Parents” section - so please do take a look!

We hope you are happy with what you find on the website and with the school.  However, if you do have a concern, please let us know.

We always encourage parents to raise matters with your child’s teacher or other appropriate member of staff in the first instance.  If you then feel that your concerns have not been resolved and you wish to take matters further we have a complaints policy and procedure which can be found in the ‘For Parents’ section of the website.  A copy can also be obtained from the school office.

All good wishes,

Gina Hutchins – Headteacher

Denise Anderson – Chair of Governors

We would like to share with you some of the things that our parents have said about Stanford Junior School recently:

“Our daughter was made to feel so welcome when she started at Stanford Junior School. She has managed to achieve at such a high level and has enjoyed her time so much that she is sad to leave.”

“Our son has had a great year with a super teacher; we all appreciate her enthusiasm and sense of fun!”

“His teacher obviously knows our son very well; thank you for making his year so enjoyable.  We are amazed at how much work he has completed and how well he has done over the past year!”

“We have noticed how much you have enabled our daughter to engage in her work at school, she has been so well motivated because of the fantastic teaching and interesting work.”

“Thanks so much to our son’s teacher for putting so much effort into his teaching. He loves school and has a huge range of interests thanks to the lovely atmosphere, and the fun/creative teaching at Stanford Junior School.”

“Thank you to everyone involved in the wonderful revamped pick-and-mix style homework - it caused genuine excitement here at home and I hope it's been just as well-received throughout the school. Thanks!”
