Parents/Carers You will be very aware there is a great deal of information on the news and the internet about the Covid-19 virus and actions the government is taking, including the possibility of school closures. We are following Public Health England and the Department for Education guidance on all matters to do with the virus and will act according to any requirements from the government.

Each week at Stepney, we have a theme, taken from one of our British Values. We also link these to our Jigsaw termly PSHCE themes, whilst also considering different cultural celebrations and special days from around the world.

Parents must be advised that where they are not sending their child to school to ‘self-isolate’ they should not be seen in other public places. To support the delay of the spread of the virus, the Department for Health and Social Care has asked anyone who shows certain symptoms to stay at home for 7 days, regardless of whether they have travelled to affected areas.

We had perfect weather conditions this morning for the year 3 cohort learning important Pedestrian skills. With so many busy roads around the school, it is vital that pupils know how to cross roads safely. Each year, we have specialists coming in to school to train our youngsters.
Lillian Bilocca (26 May 1929 – 3 August 1988) was a British fisheries worker and campaigner for improved safety in the fishing fleet as leader of the "headscarf revolutionaries" – a group of fishermen's family members. Spurred into action by the Hull triple trawler tragedy of 1968 which claimed 58 lives, she led a direct action campaign to prevent undermanned trawlers from putting to sea and gathered 10,000 signatures for a petition (the Fishermen's Charter) to Harold Wilson'

It was a great afternoon. Many thanks go to the Lord Mayor, Councillor Steve Wilson and his Beadle for making us all feel very welcome.

For 10 or more sessions (a session is defined as being either a morning or an afternoon), the fine is worked out as £60 per pupil and £60 per parent/carer of that pupil. For example: if
To mark Sports Relief, we are asking for pupils to pay £1 to come dressed in their favourite sports kits on Friday 13th March, rather than in School Uniform. We will be doing some sports activities during the day as well.
