Stanton Community Primary School and Nursery has been working really hard to support our whole school community throughout these difficult times and we will continue to keep everybody's safety and welfare at the heart of everything we do.
We have provided daily home learning tasks for those children that have been unable to return to school as well as support for any struggling families. For those children in school we have focused on continuing with their learning and guiding their emotional well-being.
We have been so grateful for all the support we have had from the parents and the wider community; this has included large donations of food which has been distributed to some of our families.
Below are a few of the wonderful comments we have received from our parents:
"Before the term draws to an end I wanted to write and express my thanks to all the staff at Stanton, I believe you have gone above and beyond during this unprecedented time to help us 'teachers' at home!
I have spoken to numerous friends up and down the country over the weeks and it seems that the majority of them feel let down and forgotten about by their schools. I have felt guilty at times saying that Stanton is in touch daily with work and support to keep us occupied and engaged - it has been fantastic. Added to that the Zoom quizzes have been a brilliant idea. Not once have I felt we have been forgotten here at home and even when you took back the children from Reception, Year 1 and 6, the support continued. I can't imagine how busy some of the staff must be and I am extremely grateful and thank you all very much."

"The support you have both given to us during this time has made a huge difference and it would have been so difficult to keep motivated if it wasn't for all your input. I am extremely grateful."
A Year 1 and Year 5 parent
"Stanton is head and shoulders above other schools in terms of the work provided for the children and more importantly the emotional support that is being given by the school staff keeping in touch with children and their families. I am vert impressed."
"Thank you for all your hard work, in particular during this crazy challenge that COVID-19 has set you all. Thank you for keeping us posted with the latest advice and plans and most of all thank you for keeping our kids safe and supported. We've always known that we could turn to you all for help and advice during this difficult time - this has been a huge comfort to us.
Thank you again - everything you do is fantastic and it does not go unnoticed."
