Welcome toSt. Stephen's School
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 5 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 proud to be ranked 46th out of the top Primary Schools in the Sunday Times. This table ranks schools on the basis of the percentage of children attaining at Level 5 in KS2 SATS in 2014. This is a tribute to our lovely children, the support of the parents and the dedication of a superb team of staff and governors.
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 of the website 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.
