The curriculum is delivered through the involvement of the children in a wide range of interactive and exciting experiences which are carefully planned to meet the needs of the individual. These experiences are provided by our enthusiastic, committed and talented team of fully qualified staff supported by the Governors of the school.
As part of our commitment to continually develop and improve the education we offer to our children, all staff are committed to their continuing professional development and regularly update their knowledge and expertise by attending In-Service Training courses.
The Senior Leadership Team
Mrs Angela Malanczuk | Principal, Stanley Green Infant Academy
I was born in Coventry but spent the majority of my childhood living overseas with my family in Lebanon, Italy and Singapore. I returned to England to complete my BA (Hons) and PGCE at Coventry and Warwick University. My teaching career began in Warwickshire twenty five years ago and since then I have worked in a variety of teaching and leadership roles in schools across the Midlands and the South West.
Being Principal of Stanley Green for over ten years has been a real privilege and extremely rewarding, being able to make the difference to the lives of children. My work is pretty varied and not one day is ever the same as the next! I enjoy being able to work collaboratively with a great team of staff, governors and the local community to shape the future vision for education in our school in a time of significant and rapid change.
I have five children (two sons and three daughters). As a parent I understand how precious each individual child is and how important it is that every child should be given as many opportunities to fulfil their true potential.
In my leisure time I love reading, gardening, cooking, spending time with my family and friends, visiting historical places and exploring our beautiful local countryside and coast.
Mrs Nikki Bennett | Deputy Principal / Key Stage 1 Lead / English Lead
I joined Stanley Green Infant Academy in January 2014 and became Assistant Principal soon after. Prior to that I taught in schools in Portsmouth for many years as that is where I am originally from.
As Deputy Principal, Key Stage 1 Lead and English Lead, my role varies from day to day, so no 2 days are ever the same which is why I love my job so much!
I enjoy working with and supporting other schools through my role as SLE (Specialist Leader of Education) as well as working to develop teachers through my role as an OLEVI Facilitator delivering the Outstanding and Improving Teacher Programmes (OTP/ITP). This work not only benefits others but also impacts positively on our school and the children we teach.
I find it incredibly rewarding working within such a great community and to watch the children thrive and progress fills me with happiness.
When I’m not at school I am often spending quality time with my family and friends or travelling . . . usually to somewhere hot and sunny! I also love to read; crime thrillers are my favourite but I do enjoy most genres.
I am always happy to speak to parents and carers so you can find me on the door in the mornings and after school or get in touch by phoning the school office.
Mrs Sue Miles | Assistant Inclusion Leader / Company Secretary
As Assistant Inclusion Leader, I am responsible for supporting children in school with medical needs and I am a qualified ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant).
I monitor pupil attendance, supported by Mrs Punchard and liaise regularly with the School Attendance Worker. I also liaise with the outreach Children’s Centre workers. I am available every day in the playground should you want to catch me and I am happy to meet anyone with a smile and a cup of tea! In my new role as Company Secretary, I support the company directors and trustees with the administration for our Academy.
You will always hear me singing around school and I thoroughly enjoy my job.
