Welcome to our school's website

Welcome to Stanway Fiveways.  Thank you for your interest in our school.

I hope that our website gives you an insight into the wide range of experiences and opportunities we offer here at Fiveways and that you will find the information helpful.   We also welcome and encourage visits to our school and I would be very happy to show you around in person.

Our ethos of kindness, care, enjoyment and achievement is integral to everything we do.  Children love being a part of the Fiveways community and they are extremely proud of their school.  Visitors to our school invariably comment on our polite and friendly pupils and the purposeful learning culture across the school.  That is because we recognise and value the individual strengths of our pupils and we support each child to be the very best that they can be.  We help our pupils to become responsible, independent and resilient learners, with high expectations and personal ambition.  We strive to ensure that our children leave us well prepared for the next stage of their education, as well-rounded and caring individuals, with lifelong memories to cherish. 

Our dedicated team work tirelessly to offer both high quality academic development and personalised pastoral care.  We work in partnership with school governors, families and the local community to ensure that we continue to deliver the very best educational experience for our pupils.

I look forward to meeting you.

Ms Jackie Irwin

Good Afternoon.

We are still awaiting release of the 'key worker list', once we have it we will email everybody to ask for families to declare whether they meet the criteria that has been set out by the government. Please look out for the email today. In order for social distancing to be successful, the school will stick firmly to the criteria that is issued by the government.


This week all login details for our online platforms, including: Dojo, Times Table Rockstars, DB Primary and Spelling Shed have been re-issued to the children. If they have not been re-issued already then this will happen today. As work will be made available, for the children, via these platforms. We are also busy collating a further bank of online resources that will be accessible for the children to use whilst they are learning from home. This will be sent out via email tomorrow. For those in self-isolation, who have not yet been re-issued their online login details, these are being emailed out – I know some of these have already been sent out and hopefully they will have all gone out by tomorrow.


As you may be aware, all schools are to close indefinitely at the end of this week. From Monday 23rd March a service will be provided at the school for just the children who have an EHCP, a social worker, or who have carers who are ‘key workers’. The details of this will be provided to schools by the government soon. Therefore from Monday only some children will be eligible to access the school. We will contact every family via email once the criteria has been issued by the government in order that families can register for a place if eligible. Please look out for this important message.

For children who will not be attending school (the majority) we will be providing support for learning. Every child will have access to the existing online learning platforms that we use, with work being set on these. We will also being providing everyone with a further bank of online resources. The teachers at the school will providing learning advice and guidance for how these can best be used via Dojo. 

As we are sure you can appreciate, this is a very challenging time for everyone at the school; every member of the school community is pulling together to ensure we get through it as a team. We would also like to thank the many of you who have passed on their best wishes and supported us at this unique time; your support is very much appreciated by everybody at the school.

As soon as we have any new information, we will share it with you.

In the meantime we will continue to do the best we possibly can for you and your children.
