Red Nose Day 24.3.17
Red Nose day is spectacular and the jokes are really good. Every child has a broad grin on their faces; wonderful to see.
Science week 13.3.17 – 17.3.17
We had an amazing day doing Science with Renee Watson. She showed us how a Volcano works using Vinegar and baking soda showing it reacting and then the build up of pressure then release. She then showed us what happens when she mixes Yeast and Hydrogen Peroxide with some colour powder and washing up liquid. The results were brilliant to see with the children’s reactions.
“I like it when we put all the ingredients in a jar and it went Boom!”
Class 3 were doing a CSI investigation
“Our class found out who stole the trophy.”
Class 2 were making Potions
“I liked it when we added the blue dye and when we shook it it changed from blue to clear.”
Class 1 and FS were looking at seeds
“I liked it when we put socks on our shoes.”
Mr Laithwaite (senior) came in to show KS2 some science on Friday during Science Week. He showed us lots of different experiments and explained to us what an alkaline and an acid was “We smelt the vanilla on the dry ice.”
“We watched the dry ice bubble, it was cool.”
Our Lets Move It Entry
Our Writing Competition
This was just an amazing competition with everyone, and I mean everyone, really trying their very best. I found it so difficult to choose winners because they all deserved a prize so thank you to everyone who entered. You were all stars.

Every Person Achieves
Stanton Harcourt Church of England Primary School provides a happy, nurturing and supportive environment founded on the principles of the Christian faith. We are fair, respectful and make sure we all work together to live up to our school motto of:
Care Respect Equality Achievement Trust Excellence
All members of our school community are valued and respected in order that everyone can have a positive attitude towards themselves, others and life. Everyone works together to ensure that all of our children experience success and reach the highest possible standards of academic achievement, whilst nurturing their self belief enabling them to become proactive future citizens.
The children in the school collaborated with the school community to create their school vision which is: “We are a small school with a big heart”.
Through our close links with parents, the community and the local church St Michael’s Stanton Harcourt, we endeavour to ensure we do indeed have a ‘big heart’.
The school provides a rich and creative curriculum to ensure all learning is taught through a range of real and creative experiences through a child-centred, enquiry based approach which celebrates the success and achievement of all. A child is at school for 12% of the year so we really need to make those hours count! We provide places for pupils for children aged 3 to 11, the pre-school are taught within the reception children in the FSU.
The school buildings are well cared for and we have grounds with hard surface areas, a spacious playing field and adventure play equipment.
The school warmly welcomes visitors, please do come and look around the school to see for yourself what a special place it is.
If you require paper copies of any of the documents on this website, please request them from the office.
We are an inclusive school.
If you are visiting our school please contact the office if you have access, hearing or sight problems. We will release a parking space for you if you need one close to the building.
