Headteacher's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Stephen's.  I am very proud of our school and promise to do everything I can to help your child thrive and develop a life long love of learning.

St Stephen's Primary School is at the heart of the village and plays an important role in the Community.  It is always a pleasure to welcome parents, grandparents and others in to school. 

We have talented staff eager to get to know your child and make every day a rich and rewarding experience.  Our teaching approach aims to give children a language of learning that enables them to know and talk confidently about what good learning looks and sounds like.  We strive to motivate our children to be aspirational, resilient pupils who persevere, collaborate and embrace challenge.  You will hear children refer to "key skills" and see, in every classroom, characters representing them.  It is the language of key skills that opens the door to powerful learning.

Prospective parents are urged to visit St Stephen's where, I guarantee, you will receive a warm welcome.  Please do not hesitate to call and arrange a visit.  I will be delighted to show you around our delightful school.

School Access - Thursday 27th June to Tuesday 2nd July inclusive

At 9am on Thursday 27th June the entrance to school via the office will be closed off as part of the ongoing building work.  This closure will remain in place until the morning of Wednesday 3rd July.

Should you need to speak to the office during this period, please either telephone or send a letter in with your child marked for the attention of the office.

We would ask that all children arrive at school on time as they will not be able to be brought through this entrance during this closure period.

In addition can all children bring items needed for the day with them in the morning as there will be no facility to pass any late items on during the day i.e. water bottles, sandwiches, musical instruments, coats, swimming/pe/after school kits etc.

Should your child have a medical appointment during this period, please telephone the school office upon your arrival and we will arrange for your child to be taken to the Skate Park Gate for collection.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Theft from School

St. Stephen’s staff and pupils are saddened and disappointed by the theft of a time lapse camera that was being used to record the development of their new building.  The camera was taken over the weekend of 1st and 2nd June.

The school had been planning to use the images, which have been taken at half-hourly intervals during school hours since the project began last October, as the central part of the ‘opening’ ceremony.

Furthermore, the images would have provided an important document of this moment in the school’s history.

The school believes the thieves to be local residents and, most likely, ex-pupils which makes the theft all the more upsetting.  If anyone has information about the whereabouts of the memory card from the camera, please inform the school.  The return of the card, anonymously or otherwise, would be welcomed.

Language of the Term



To show respect for other cultures, as a whole school, each term we learn about a new language.     

Languages we have covered include Urdu, Polish, Catalan, British Sign Language and Punjabi.
