On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Stanley Park Junior School. We hope that our website is clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work our pupils, and our links in the community.
We are a three form entry Junior School with Gold Artsmark status, which nurtures caring, confident and successful children with a "Sense of Pride" in all they do. Visitors comment on our school as having a very good learning environment with a family feel about it.
At Stanley Park Junior School we value all aspects of learning across a wide curriculum, with our aim to nurture the knowledge, skills and enthusiasm that lead towards life-long learning and prepare everyone for a successful role in life. Ofsted (2014) commented, “The rich and varied curriculum promotes learning well. It enables pupils to apply skills they have already learnt in different subjects. Pupils are inspired by the themed days, which provide memorable learning opportunities.” You’ll find our classrooms to be hives of activity, creativity and learning - making Stanley Park a special place for children.
I am fully committed to the Stanley Park Junior School community and will strive to ensure that the school continues to nurture children to achieve their full potential. I am determined to build on our excellent achievements and look forward to seeing us develop further. High quality education requires close co-operation between the school and home and I therefore look forward to seeing how we can develop these links further. We value the ideas and support from parents through regular surveys, coffee mornings, workshops, family evenings and social events organised by a very successful Parent Teacher Association. We have an “open door” policy that welcomes pop-in meetings, appointments and e-mails for any communication. We keep parents informed through regular newsletters, texts and e-mails.
Most of all, we aim to make every child feel valued, listened to and successful. Children are always expected to put in as much effort as they can, and are rewarded for this. We provide many opportunities for our pupils to take on additional responsibilities. They can become class monitors, elected eco and school council representatives, sports leaders or mini-mentors. They raise funds to build their own budget so that they can choose charities and resources for school.
If you would like to know more about our school, you are very welcome to come and visit. The children of Stanley Park Junior School enjoy talking about and celebrating their accomplishments. In fact, we are all very proud of our successful school.
