The quality of care, guidance and support in our school is excellent and we pride ourselves in knowing every child’s abilities and needs.
South Stanley Infant and Nursery has and maintains close links with External Partnerships; In order to access the best professional advice, we also link with Local Authority and Private Providers of additional services, such as Occupational Therapy, CAHMS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) School Nursing Service, Social Services and Medical Professionals
Our well trained staff are up-to-date with many aspects of well-being, some having very specialised skills which can support children with complex needs or in vulnerable circumstances. Families may be supported by Mr Trevor Howard – School Attendance and Welfare Officer. The school works closely with ‘First Contact’ services.
Several members of staff are trained in specific medical procedures for children with identified needs. Almost all staff have some form of First Aid training, from basic to enhanced. Staff are also trained in delivering medicines in school.
The opinions and views of our children and young people are crucial. We undertake questionnaires to identify how we can support our children in their social and emotional development. Any concerns raised are dealt with immediately; including any concerns over bullying.
Our school is accessible to all of its users. Steps are all over our school but access to all levels can be supported from different doors. Staff will provide support for visitors/ pupils with disabilities.
