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.

There have, however, been some mysterious figures spotted already enjoying the new playground! If you see anything, or anyone, out of the ordinary, please let us know! 

Noticeboard

Reminder - School Office

Just to remind all Parents and Visitors that due to the on-going building work, the School Office is still in its temporary base within school and therefore there is  no access to school via this part of the building.  As such if you need to speak to the office please call 01283 790268.  Please be aware that there is only one line coming in and out of school during this period and if you are unable to speak to someone straight away, please leave a message which will be picked up straight away.

For any late arrivals, appointments etc, access can only be made via the skatepark gate and again please call the office whereby a member of staff will arrange to meet you.

Thank you

Poppy Sales

Poppies and other RBL merchandise will be on sale in school this week.  Due to the collection tins being sealed, we are unable to provide any change.  Therefore, please send either the correct minimum donation amount per item or any larger donation you wish to make.  As these items prove popular they do sell quickly and we cannot guarantee sufficient amounts for all children as we can only sell what we are provided with by the RBL.  There are however, large quantities of the traditional paper poppies available.

Suggested minimum donations are as follows:

Eraser - 50p / Reflector - 50p / Pencil Sharpener - 50p / Pencil - 50p / Ruler - £1.00 / Large House Poppy - £3

Temporary School Entry Points

The builders are now ready to start constructing the new toilet block and as such, we have had to put in place some new temporary entry points as follows:

Reception – will continue to access school via their normal entry point.

Year 2 – can either enter via the Reception area and then on in through the fire door to the school hall or via the Skatepark entry and then on in through the fire door to the school hall.

Collection for Year 2 can only be made via the fire door off the school hall.  Space is very limited in these areas and we would therefore ask those collecting to be patient and stand back from the door to leave a gap in order for the children to exit the school hall safely.

Once the toilets have been built there will be a new Year 2 entrance and exit door in close proximity to the previous point.

All Other Year Groups – will continue to access school via their normal entry points.

 

September 2020 - EYFS Intake

We have now set two "tour" dates for any prospective parents looking for a Reception School Place starting September 2020.  The dates are Monday 25th November at 2.00pm and Friday 29th November at 9.30am.  Please Note: the tour is for parents only initially due to space restrictions and places can be booked by ringing the school office on 01283 790268.  If your child is offered a place at our school, they will then have the opportunity to come into school next year to stay for induction mornings and sample a school lunch.

Thank you

 

After School Tennis Club

Please see below message sent to Parents by MicroSports:

Unfortunately we have to cancel tennis for this half term because of the building work that is taking place. This has taken longer than expected so there is nothing we can do to try and make the tennis run this half term. 

 

I am aware that payment has been made. You can either carry this over in credit to next half term or to access your full refund please contact me directly with your sort code and account number so that I can send the refund straight to you please. If you paid via cheque I can destroy the cheque. Let me know what works best for you. 

 

To make sure that the children don’t miss out on tennis this half term I have listed some sessions below that they can get involved with. 

 

Tuesday 5.30 - 6.30pm, Lichfield Friary Tennis Club

Saturday 9am, Lichfield Friary Tennis Club

Saturday 1pm, Alrewas Tennis Club

Saturday 2pm, Alrewas Tennis Club (year 6 only)

If you require any details of theses sessions then let me know. 

 

There is also tennis for kids available via the link below where your child received six coaching sessions, a free racket and personalised t-shirt for £25. These are available at both Lichfield Friary tennis club and Alrewas tennis club. Please see the links below or get in touch for further information.
