The latest news and what's going on at Stanton Vale
  • Ofsted good

    As you probably know on Tuesday 27th February we were visited by Ofsted inspectors to review the work of the school. Under the current framework the school is given less than 24-hour notice of a visit and inspectors were here bright and early at 8 a.m. It is our pleasure to share with you the contents of the report that will be posted officially on the Ofsted website in the next week. Importantly the school remains ‘Good’ and the report reflects the many strengths of the school, as well as suggesting what we can do to improve further. They didn’t find anything we aren’t already working on! For us, the report captures the wonderful partnership that the pupils have with the staff at every level in school and also the close working relationship we share with many of you and other professionals. Children and young people are safe and learning, perhaps the two most important things any school can offer. It only remains for us to thank the whole community of Stanton Vale, staff, Governors, visiting professionals, parents, and most importantly, the pupils for making this such a positive and vibrant place to be. Today’s news is quickly tomorrows chip paper as they say. The visit of Ofsted already seems a world away but now is a time for us to reflect on how far we have come and most importantly continue to work hard to support all the children and young people at Stanton Vale.

  • first aid

    We will be running first Aid courses for parents and carers. They will take place at Stanton Vale on the 13th & 20th March and will run from 10am – 2pm. There will be a limited number of spaces available on a first come first served basis. The bespoke course will run for approx. 8 hours over 2 days and would normally cost £75.00 pp so will be heavily subsidised. Please remember to bring lunch along with you. Tea and coffee will be provided. The dates are as follows: 13th March 9.45am – 2.15pm and 20th March 9.45am – 2.15pm There will be a small charge of £5.00 per person to reserve a place which will be refundable upon completion. Unfortunately, if you do not turn up for both sessions no refund will be made. If you would like to book a place, please book via the booking form below and return it to school by 28th February . Payment can be made by cash or cheque (payable to Special Needs Circle – East Midlands) and sent into school FAO Lyn Blackman. BOOKING FORM  

  • new

    We thought it was time to update our school aims to better suit the work that we all do at Stanton Vale School so after consultation with parents and approval from Governors our new school aims can be viewed by clicking the link below :) School Aims

  • Students from Stanton Vale, Bennerley Fields and Alfreton Park School went head to head in a competition of Table top cricket. We all took turns in fielding and batting. There were some tense moments and some strong batting. After a few hours the winners were announced with Stanton Vale coming in first. All students worked well, made new friends and enjoyed the environment!

    As you may be aware we have made alterations to our curriculum and the way we set our pupil's annual targets. In September, teachers set either two or three annual targets for pupils in the following areas; Communication (Comm), Cognition (Cog), Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and Physical Development (PD). A baseline for each target was recorded. At least three times during the year, teacher's record progress towards each pupil's target and judge whether it is; Below Expected (A), Expected (B) or Better then Expected progress (C). To see our pupil's latest progress for September 2017 - December 2017 click here.  

  • the_nativity_story

    This week Primary Department came together inviting parents, family and friends to their Christmas Nativity. The pupils, as ever, were brilliant all taking part in their own way. This year a number of the pupils were able to narrate parts of the show for us, very brave to talk in front of a hall full of parents. The angels were angelic, the kings were kingly and the shepherds did shepherding all to the backdrop of some traditional and new songs telling the story of the nativity. I hope all out there enjoyed it as much as we did.
