A Message from the Headteacher
As Headteacher I am proud to lead this federated group of outstanding schools and Children’s Centre with dedicated staff and a supportive community committed to excellence in education.
The school continues to enter a new era with the expansion of the school to 3 form entry. We are admitting an additional 30 children into the Reception unit over the next 2 years. We hope that this expansion will allow more children from our community to access the high quality provision here at St Stephen’s.
St Stephen’s is extremely proud to be awarded ‘The top state Primary School’ in the country as listed in The Sunday Times on 19th November 2017. This achievement is testament and tribute to our lovely children, the support of the parents, the dedication of a superb team of Governors and a highly effective and intelligent staff team.
We aim for a real love of learning here at St Stephen’s extending beyond school into each child’s life. We want children to be excited about coming to school, engaged in their learning and able to articulate their views in a polite, respectful and harmonious way. We believe wholeheartedly that a child’s education should be inspirational, challenging and nurturing.
The highly skilled and passionate staff and governors of the school believe that it is essential that every child is prepared to meet their life challenges, with an atmosphere of high expectation and appropriate challenge, memorable experiences together with a reflective, compassionate understanding of themselves and communities around them.
The contents will provide you with information about our school, ranging from our vision, aims and curriculum to our policies and daily practice.
I hope that you find it useful and I look forward to sharing St Stephen’s with you.
