Our links with the Leonard Stanley Community
We would like to think that our school is at the heart of the village community. Our children are encouraged to develop a sense of belonging and to value themselves and their neighbours. We do this via:
The Community Police and Fire Officers' are familiar faces in school with occasional visits to the school from Road Safety organisations and various charities.
We publish a weekly Newsletter aimed at keeping you informed of our activities and inviting participation. You can sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of the page.
We are members of the Stroud Association of Schools and are continuing to develop successful links with local industries, cluster schools and business. Working with businesses has enriched the curriculum and we, in turn, have been able to inform and advise industry about education.
We have a local buying policy in our school kitchen which requires us to support local producers where practical.
We host Leonard Stanley Dozule Twinning Association events, including hosting French visitors in the school, who visit to take part in our school assemblies and talk with pupils etc.
St. Swithun's Church
Leonard Stanley Primary School is very fortunate to have St. Swithun's Church in Leonard Stanley situated a short walk from the school. The school uses the church for worship, celebrations and learning.
A dedicated team of volunteers from the church come into school every Wednesday to do 'Open the Book' sessions in our school assembly.
Pupils from the school are invited to form part of the annual procession that is part of the Leonard Stanley Village Fair.
We welcome local community groups use of our school facilities. For example the local Brownie and Rainbow Packs who used the school playing fields for their 'Race for Life' during the summer of 2016, a local Judo Club who use the school hall on a Friday morning and a yoga group who hold classes on a Wednesday evening.
