  • Young Carers Bronze Award
April 2019

Stanton Bridge Primary School has been given a Bronze award for their work to make sure students don’t miss out on an education because they are young carers.

To achieve their Bronze Award Stanton Bridge has demonstrated that it supports young carers in many ways, including homework clubs and drop-in sessions with a member of staff who is responsible for this vulnerable group of pupils. Vital information about how to identify young carers is made available to all school staff, and noticeboards and the school webpage let students and their families know where to go for help.

  • Walk Once a Week Competition (WOW)

We had a competition for year 5 and 6 children where they were asked to design their own WOW badges. The theme for the competition was 'Inventions that changed the world'. As a School, we had to pick just 3 of the best entries, and send them to WOW. Then from all the entries they have received from School's across the country, WOW will choose 11 designs, and use them for next years badges! We had many fantastic entries and it was very difficult to pick the 3 winners- Congratulations to our winners Fahima, Alvaro, and Mehek! We hope WOW will choose your designs and you become famous!

After our fantastic French Day , we received a great message from Roland the host of the French interactive Workshop.

As always Stanton Bridge Pupils behaved exceptionally, see below for the letter from Roland. 

Hi Mrs Sangha
 As usual we had the best time in Stanton Bridge.  Everyone was so welcoming and friendly – random people who made tea, found cables, sorted the LX, stacked chairs etc etc. It’s a fab school.
 I felt very proud of British education last week. Cristina is French/Congolese and started working with us quite recently. She was really impressed by how happy and engaged all your pupils were. So please pass that on to all members of staff.
 Thanks for inviting us back.
Kind regards
