Dear Parents

Welcome back to the Summer Term at St Stephen’s. We were very pleased to see your children return to school at the start of the new Term. We have a busy half term ahead of us with Parents’ evenings, SATs week and sports days and many other visits and events.

The Year 6 and Year 2 children have been busy preparing for their SATs. These tests will be taking place from the week beginning 14th May. I would like to thank the parents especially for encouraging their children to grow in their determination to succeed as well as supporting the school by attending meetings and overseeing additional homework. We will be running a breakfast club for the Year 6 children at 8:15 a.m. each morning of SATs week. On behalf of the staff of the school, may I take this opportunity to pass on our best wishes for the success they have worked so hard for.

The DfE has released the list of schools in England receiving a congratulatory letter from school’s minister Nick Gibb for excellent performance at key stage 2 in 2017. I am proud to announce that St Stephen’s was on the list- Top 2% of schools nationally for progress in reading, writing and mathematics combined. I would like to thank the staff for the hard work and professionalism in producing such high standards.

As a result of being awarded the top state Primary School in the country we have been inundated with requests from key people and other schools to visit to share our good practice. Last term we were visited by Galleons Primary School, Grange Primary School, Park Primary School in Lancashire, Ravenor Primary School in Greenford, Nilesh B Dosa, Robert Singh from Ambitious Schools, Simone Milani from the DFE, Alice Gasson from Teach First, Sophie Taylor from the DFE, Dame Alison Peacock from Chartered College of Teaching and Fulbridge Academy Peterborough. These visits are testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and your children.

Thank you

Ms Neena Lall
