Partnerships are very important to the development of Stannington Infant School. They enable us to always remain outward looking, help us to understand our own strengths and areas to improve, provide support for our families and enable us to provide exciting and memorable learning opportunities for our children.
Stannington Infant School works in a number of active partnerships with other schools and organisations. One of these partnerships is our Family of Schools, which centres around Bradfield School.
The majority of our pupils move on to Nook Lane Junior School and Bradfield School and you can find out more by visiting www.nooklanejunior.co.uk / www.bradfieldschool.net or contacting them on 0114 2341097 (Nook Lane) 0114 2348805 (Bradfield). Great care is taken to ensure that the transition to junior and secondary school is as happy and smooth as possible, and we work closely in partnership with all of the schools that our pupils move on to.
We work very closely with our Family of Schools, listed below, and have regular shared activities through the school year, in addition to holding joint staff meetings, leadership meetings and training through the year.

The Yorkshire Triangle
Stannington Infant School works closely with other schools across South Yorkshire in learning networks.
This sharing of good practice and the opportunity of continual professional development for staff has been tremendous. Being part of the Yorkshire Triangle Network has enabled our school to focus on the Quality of Teaching and Learning and Leadership. We look forward to continuing these links.
Other schools involved in The Yorkshire Triangle include:
Each year our family of schools collaborates on a focused piece of learning. in 2014/15 we published a Poetry Anthology and in 2015/16 we complied a book of short stories.
