St Stephen’s Primary School ethos is built upon our four core values of Love, Courage, Creativity and Joy. These are woven into, and evident within, the relationships which bind our school together: pupil to pupil, pupil to adult, adult to adult. We genuinely care about each member of our school community, and this has created, over many years, a family atmosphere of warmth, fun and nurture.
These core values are chosen to ensure we each feel cared for, confident and able to learn every day, whilst building in us all the ability to thrive in the future.
Our vision is that by the time our ‘well-educated 11 year olds’ leave us, they will be…
We are committed to ensuring that every pupil leaves us with the skills and self-confidence required to thrive in their future, whilst ensuring they are nurtured, challenged and inspired within a high-quality Primary School environment. That way, we can help every child to become the best that they can be.
How we behave comes from our sense of belonging. The school’s Christian ethos of inclusive Love inspires and underpins this.
Every person is an individual. Understanding them and establishing a positive relationship is the first step to enabling them to be the best they can be.
Behaviour is a communicator of emotion and we must always fully consider and address the underlying feelings that are preventing someone from behaving positively.
‘St Stephen's is a unique community inspired by Christian values, promoting mutual respect, responsible behaviour, and encouraging creativity and a joy in learning.’
