Stanford is a "You Can Do It" school. We are a co-educational, multi-cultural primary school in Norbury, within easy reach of pupils and parents as we border on the three boroughs of Merton, Lambeth and Croydon. Come and see our school and find out about our keys for the future and how we are teaching children the ’You Can Do It’ way, with our key strategies of confidence, persistence, organisation and getting along. Your child can do it too, with pupils, parents and staff working together. As one of our teachers says "the You Can Do It programme is more than a strategy for behaviour management. It is about motivation, attitude and self-esteem. By developing positive mind sets, the children become well motivated, independent learners". We have spacious, well equipped classrooms, a gymnasium, library, music/drama room and computer suite. The school has access to the extensive playing pitches of a commercial company and the school’s play area has recently been extended, and a plan for the development of the school grounds has been produced with the help of our pupils. Stanford Wise Owl lives in the ’tree’ in our hall and travels all around the world with our pupils when it’s holiday time. We now have Wise Owl on our smart uniforms - burgundy sweatshirts and ties, blue shirts and grey skirts or trousers. We have an achievement centre that provides a flexible and imaginative resource that can be accessed by all pupils, staff and those interested in helping children in their learning, social and emotional development. The centre is fully utilised before, during and after school, and makes a significant contribution towards our pledge to work together to raise standards and encourage all pupils to fulfil their potential.
