Learning, caring and growing together
Welcome & Head Teacher’s Message
On behalf of the staff, governors and children of Stannington First School, thank you for visiting our school website. Stannington First School is a successful community school, set in a beautiful location, serving the children and their families of our local area and beyond. We are all very proud of Stannington First School which puts at its heart our children and their learning. Our aim is to provide an outstanding education for all of our pupils and encourage them to become motivated, lifelong learners.
It is important to us that our pupils are prepared to make their own contributions to our diverse society, as confident and happy citizens, and we have an excellent team of caring and committed staff who work incredibly hard to provide the children with a broad range of opportunities and experiences within our friendly, safe and stimulating environment.
We understand that the support of parents and carers is a key aspect to a child's success at school. With their support, and that of our local community, we are able to work together to ensure each child receives the best possible education. This is done through communication and establishing positive relationships. Through learning, caring and growing together, we can ensure each child fulfils their potential.
As someone interested in our school, I hope that as you browse through our website you not only find the information that you are looking for but also learn more about the ethos of our school. However, our school is much more than the contents of this website so please feel free to visit and see our wonderful school in action; you will be very warmly welcomed.

Our Values and Ethos
How do we help each other to learn, care and grow?
At Stannington First School, we encourage children to:
- Speak individually, yet work collaboratively
- Ask questions as often as they seek the answer or solution
- Discover the best within themselves and others
- Respect all people and value their differences
- Act responsibly and care for our school, community and world
- Challenge themselves in a cherishing and nurturing environment

Reminder: It's science week here at Stannington First next week and to launch the week, children can come dressed as a famous scientist, past or present, fiction or non-fiction. Let your imagination run wild!
It's national Thank A Teacher Day and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who is part of our team at Stannington First - you are all amazing!
Heather decided to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust. Her hair has been sent off in the post and she has raised £235 so far! Apparently it costs £550 to make each wig! We are all so proud of her! https://t.co/O5rMRdzXHz
