Our aim at Stanley is to help each child develop their own potential, together with key life skills such as confidence, responsibility and teamwork. Above all, we wish to give them a love of learning.
It is our firmly held view that children will learn best when parents and school work closely together and we hope you will encourage your child to contribute to the life of the school and to take part and enjoy the many opportunities available.
We hope you find all the information you need about our school on the website, but please contact us if you need any further information.
t Stanley Primary School we embrace the Government’s definition of British Values:
The rule of law
Respect for those with different faiths and beliefs
As a school, we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We value the ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these alongside other cultures in our country.
We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts. Our cross curricular approach provides excellent opportunities to deepen understanding, developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of our children.
The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community through, for example, sporting events and a range of visits.
Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make individual choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons.
At Stanley, we value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as our School Council whose members are voted for by the children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for debate and putting forward points of view. Our Year 6 children are also given the opportunity to take part in a residential visit which includes a visit to Parliament.
Children are given responsibility to lead other children in games and activities so that they are fully involved in all aspects of school life. For instance, our older children are play leaders and buddies for the younger children in school. We expect all our children to be good role models for each other, which is encouraged through high expectations of behaviour and good manners.
At Stanley we will actively challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
Behaviour by an individual or group, usually repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) defines bullying as: The repetitive, intentional hurting of one person by another (or others) where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be carried out physically, verbally, emotionally or through cyberspace. Bullying can take many forms: name calling, taunting, mocking, making offensive comments, kicking, hitting, pushing, taking belongings, cyber bullying, including inappropriate text messaging and emailing, social networks, sending offensive or degrading images by phone or via the internet, producing offensive graffiti, gossiping, excluding people from groups, and spreading hurtful and untruthful rumours. Although sometimes occurring between two individuals in isolation, it quite often takes place in the presence of others. We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so that they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Through our Behaviour Policy, curriculum and relationships in school we hope to achieve a caring, co-operative ethos at Stanley Primary School. We do recognise however that incidents may occur in school from time to time that may be defined as bullying. We define bullying as repeated action taken by one or more children with the deliberate intention of hurting another child, either physically or emotionally. We are a ‘TELLING’ school. This means anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell a member of staff. Possible safeguarding risks should be passed on to the Designated Safeguarding Lead. Further advice may be sought from the Police Awaken Team or Social Care duty desk.
