School is now closed – we hope that you all have a fantastic time over these six weeks and look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 5th September 2022 – doors opening at 8.50am.

This year has been great for staff and pupils alike; from sporting achievements and math competitions, to fundraising events and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee day – the children have excelled and we have had fun along the way.

Good luck Year 6!

We would like to wish all our year six pupils good luck in their next step in their journey at High School.  The children have been an absolute pleasure this year and have worked so hard in very challenging circumstances over the past months.  We hope they look back at their time at Stanley with fond memories and hope they keep in touch.

A Message From our Chair of Governors – Shellie Bee

The time has come to bid Mr England farewell as today he leaves school to begin his retirement.

In 1997 Mr England arrived at Stanley as Deputy Head of the Junior School. He obviously enjoyed his time here so much – he never left! The Juniors and Infants amalgamated and under his leadership became the ‘Stanley’ we know today – a school we can all be proud of.

As a leader Mr England has seen thousands of children pass through. Each one has benefited from his strong leadership and commitment to make the school the best it can be. From my experience of being a parent and a governor, children are proud to belong to Stanley and are rarely seen without smiles on their faces.

I am sure you will want to join me in thanking Mr England and wishing him a very long and happy retirement.

From September the school with be in the very capable hands of Mrs Murphy as Headteacher, and Miss Manson as Deputy Head. I have every confidence they will both lead Stanley forward and continue its journey towards excellence.

Please do not send medication in with your child, this is unsafe. All medications need to be brought to the office by an adult (and collected the same way) and a Permission to Administer Medicine form completed in order for us to give medicine to your child.

All medicines need to be prescribed to your child by a doctor, with a clear prescription label. There are some medicines that we are unable to administer within school. Please contact the Office if you need to discuss. Thank you.

School Uniform

A message from 1st Class Kids, Highfield Road for our current Stanley pupils and our current Y6 moving on to high school “buy your school uniform as soon as possible. If you get in now you will avoid the queues and get good availability and avoid the hassle”.

Summer Camps & Events

Operation Encompass now operates throughout Lancashire police force. It helps police and schools work together to provide emotional and practical help to children. The system ensures that when police are called to an incident of domestic abuse, where there are children in the household who have experienced the domestic incident, the police will inform the school (Miss Manson) before the child or children arrive the following day. This ensures that the school has up to date relevant information about the child’s circumstances and can enable support to be given to the child.
