While we are still being really careful and cautious in order to avoid pupils and staff catching COVID, we also want to start returning to normality. Mr Jones, our PE Coach and Miss Mortimer took an eager group of KS2 children to Ennerdale Leisure Centre this morning to take part in a range of games and PE activities, including Tri-Golf, Orienteering, Target Practice and New Age Curling. They had a wonderful time and were overjoyed to be taking part in a school activity that

Dear Year 6 Parents and Carers, I am writing to let you know there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the school community, and your child may have had contact with them during their infectious period.

We are delighted that Stepney Primary School has been selected for a project aimed at encouraging children to take up cycling. The project is being delivered by local charity R-evolution and has been funded by Northern Powergrid as a ‘thank you’ to the local community for its support and patience while the company carried out extensive roadworks to lay new electricity cables earlier this year.

What a day we had yesterday. The first International Pupil Councils took place in both Hull and Freetown. Founded in 2010 by Francis Mason (seen above) and Mr Browning, this is going from strength to strength. Undaunted by global crises, such as Ebola and COVID-19, the IPC has continued to get young people involved in the forefront of current global issues. Yesterday, we had the chance to take a relook at the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Mr Mason led a meeting in Freetow
