  • this is me

    As you may be aware Alex and Emma from our Middle Department decided that they wanted to showcase what we at Stanton Vale School are all about with a video. With the help of Joel, founder of 'Always with a Smile Foundation' we believe that they captured what we as a school community are all about. It is a pleasure to be able to share our pupils with you all, so that you can see what we get to enjoy daily by being with these inspirational children. So a massive thank you to Alex, Emma and especially Joel! Click here to view This is Me! We are trying to raise much needed funds for our second phase of the playground project which is to create a multi-sensory area for our children to enjoy. To donate please visit:    

  • WOOW! What a week we had at Stanton Vale last week for Festival Week! It was well and truly magical! The sun shone and we all came together to celebrate friendship within our school community with our friends and wider community. We would like to thank everyone who visited us during this week whether it was to sing, allow us to play with instruments or play hand bells for us. You helped us make it so special. Some of our older students stayed to enjoy the sun setting with friends and then camped at school over night!

    This week's #WakeupWednesday topic is Minecraft. Minecraft is a 'sandbox' game which means players have the freedom to build their own creations with blocks they collect and also have the ability to explore other people's creations with their characters. Players can choose from thousands of different servers to join, which are created by other players, making every experience of minecraft unique!

  • As you should be aware we are currently consulting with all stakeholders in regards to becoming an Academy school and joining Esteem Multi-Academy Trust.

Governors are due to meet on Monday 9th July to review feedback and will let you all know their decision as soon as possible.

    National Online Safety are currently running a #wakeupwednesday campaign. They are creating guides to help parents understand more about what their children are doing/playing via the ever changing world of the internet and the dangers associated with children being online. You may of all heard of the popular free online game called "Fortnite" but not far behind is "PUBG" which can also be downloaded and played via a mobile device. Please take a couple of minutes to read their guide here. For more information regarding online safety please visit our safeguarding page here.

  • thank you

    We would like to say a massive thank you to Toyota's apprentices who have revamped our memory garden! The Apprentices did all the work from the planning, arranging, buying materials and fitting. It now looks like a brand new space and has really helped with our target of rejuvenating the school's outdoor space. They have fitted a water feature, extended the block paved path, installed a memorial plaque board and even found the time to fit a new fence! This work was carried out over the May Half Term and they even continued to work through the rain! Amazing work guys and once again thank you! DSC_0018 DSC_0045 DSC_0033
