Welcome from the Executive Principal
Welcome to the website for Stanley Grove Primary Academy. We are very proud of our inclusive and innovative school and all of our fantastic pupils, staff, parents and community.
Stanley Grove is a Bright Futures Educational Trust school, working together with a group of schools across the North West to provide the very best education for all of our pupils. Being a part of Bright Futures Educational Trust means that our pupils and staff can access resources from across the Trust’s schools, continually challenging and supporting each other in our Multi Academy Trust.
Our Trust vision statement:
‘The best for everyone, the best from everyone.’
And our values:
Passion, Integrity, Community
guide us in providing the very best opportunities for all of our pupils and having high expectations from all of our staff.
We have a rich curriculum offer which explores both the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful and well-rounded individuals who can find their way through the world and positively contribute to society. We actively promote and nurture the curiosity and questioning nature of pupils using Philosophy for Children as a way of exploring the curriculum. We develop the professional awareness and curiosity of our teachers through our unique approach to teaching and learning development known as ‘Reflective Inquiry’ as well as exploring a wide range of current educational research.
Heart and Essence and the Golden Threads
This is just a simple way of understanding what connects our schools and provides a meaningful foundation for authentic collaborative partnerships, working together on the same underlying principles. We understand that by having common bonds and through developing meaningful relationships which we can continually grow, develop and improve together. We place a great deal of emphasis on developing our children as:
Independent, Collaborative, Inquisitive, Reflective, Creative, Resilient, Happy, Curious, Confident, Risk-takers
These are our Golden Threads!
We have many collaborative partnerships both within Bright Futures and outside of our organisation. For example, we are an active member of a national network of schools known as Challenge Partners, a network of over 400 schools. We have strong links with Manchester University and other Educational institutes and we work closely with the Manchester Museum and Whitworth Gallery as well as many other partners. It is through these partnerships where we seek the very best experiences for our children at our school for their academic, social, personal, cultural and spiritual? l development.
Please take time to explore our website, looking for the Golden Threads which run through all of our work!
