Headteacher’s Welcome



I would like to warmly welcome you to the Staincliffe Church of England Junior School website. We are a happy, friendly and successful school where children have the opportunity to flourish in a safe and stimulating environment. Throughout their time here children are encouraged to love learning and work hard.

Our school is very much a family, working together as children, parents, staff and the local community to raise aspirations for all. We are all proud of our school and its motto of One Team Together. Staincliffe Junior School is a cohesive, inclusive and caring community where pupils are valued. As a church school serving a majority Muslim community it sensitively celebrates and respects both Christian and Islamic festivals, cultures and practices and provides rich life experiences for its pupils.



 We have high expectations of all our pupils. A recent OFSTED inspection said:
“Pupils are very polite, well mannered and considerate......pupils want to learn and their excellent behaviour helps them learn well.”



We gain high standards, particularly in Maths where OFSTED grade us as outstanding. We believe that there are no limits on what they can achieve.

We challenge pupils to do their best and provide them with a creative and inclusive curriculum designed to maximise every learning opportunity. We have a strong focus on English and Maths and provide a rich programme of extracurricular activities designed to support children’s learning and development. 

Yours faithfully
Mr P M Spencer

I was a student there in the early fifties, before I went to Batley Boys High School. On a recent trip back, I now live in Australia, I noticed it had changed since I was there. I had bad memories of lining up for the horrid Cod Liver Oil tablets, but did like the little bottles of milk.

I like this school because it is calm, relaxing and has enjoyable things to do. Anyone, even if it is someone you don't know, they will always assay the same thing. Staincliffe rules! It's the best school ever and the teachers are all great at explaining things.
