What a Difference a Day Makes!

Yesterday was all tail end of Storm Jonas and today is all blue skies and sunshine - which makes for a much happier playtime for everyone. The usual busy day at St Stephen's - we started the day with Reverend Kim Lafferty leading the school assembly before Year 3 (accompanied by Chair of Governors…

G & T's All Round

We took two of our Gifted & Talented gymnasts to a special training session at Bolton Gymnastics Club this morning. The girls represented the school really well - even when tumbling through the air with amazing agility!

Thursday Already!

It's been a good week so far - everything going smoothly (except for the major repair work on Bent Spur Road). The conversion of our top playground to a temporary car park has eased the congestion  - thank you for your patience before & after school - and things should be back to 'normal' after…

That Friday Feeling....

The end of another busy week at St Stephen's. We like to work hard and play hard (especially Year 6 in the football yard - just outside my office window). At least the rain has stopped for a while but the children's dream of snow hasn't come true - YET. Have a good weekend.

Gambia Calling!

Just received a phone call from Mrs Angela Touray, the new Head Teacher at Serrekunda - our link school in the Gambia. We lost contact with them for a few months but now our link is up and running again. Later this term children from both schools will exchange letters about life in the two…

I Went to Pieces in Assembly....

This morning's assembly was all about the Family of St Stephen's and how EVERYONE (staff, governors, children, parents) has a part to play. Without every single piece in place this school wouldn't be as successful as it is. Thank you for the contribution YOU make - long may it…
