Today's safeguarding assembly focussed on cycling road safety skills. Last week, our year 6 pupils undertook their level 1 and level 2 training. They were keen to share their new skills with the rest of the school this morning.

The teacher followed the e-safety procedures set out to all staff and didn't respond. She notified the head teacher and then spoke to the two girls, reminding them that they should not be sending friends requests to school staff.

All of the pupils were exceptionally well behaved today. Well done, everyone. Our profound thanks go to Mrs Holmes, Miss Truelove and the other HEYCU volunt
At Stepney, our pupils love to learn their tables in fun ways, whether singing them or using the brilliant TT Rock Stars website. This allows them to beat their best times and challenge their friends’ best times. We love dressing up at Stepney, so we thought what better way would it be to come dressed up as a Rock Star on Friday 7th February for the NSPCC's Number Day. Remember: Rock Stars usually dress up in outlandish clothes so be inventive, creative and radical for next w

This was all about recycling. We found out that St. Stephen's doesn't send any of its waste to landfill. We saw how cardboard and plastic are compressed, bun

This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack. Asthma can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often chan

He was the third king of the House of Plantagenet.
