I welcome you to Stondon Lower School on behalf of the staff, the children, the parents and the governors.
It is our belief that every child deserves the best life chances and that our school, in partnership with parents and carers, plays a vital role in that.
We aim to promote a child's curiosity about the world around them, foster an irresistible love of learning, develop their independence and social awareness and promote lifelong positive learning behaviours.Our school motto "Every one, every chance, every day" captures this belief and sits alongside our Vision and Aims for the school which are to:
From the moment the children first arrive, we aim to help them to settle quickly, build excellent relationships with other children and with adults, feel happy, safe and secure and quickly take those first steps on the next phase of their learning journey.
Stondon Lower School has a stable, committed and passionate staff team and Governing Body who work closely together to provide a positive environment and experience that meets the needs of all pupils. We are actively supported by a dedicated parent and teacher association (PETALS).
We also work closely with Stondon Stompers, our community preschool providers and other community members including All Saints’ church in Upper Stondon. Stondon Lower is a Values school. We hold the values kite mark of which we are all very proud. It marks our school as a place where developing good values is at the foundations of all learning.
As you read this, I expect that you will have more questions. We therefore encourage you to visit our school with your child. Come along and see what we are up to and how we do it; ask those questions and see for yourself.
Looking forward to welcoming you very soon,
Stondon Lower School
