We realise this message goes out all the time but please will you let us know if any of your telephone numbers or your home address has changed during the last few months.

This can obviously be worrying f
On behalf of everyone at Stepney, we would like to welcome everyone back to the new school year. We are looking forward to the new term, with some new changes and a few new faces. All our pupils have come back with excellent attitudes and have already been putting in some admirable work and effort.

Years 5 & 6 need to arrive at 8.40am on the Stepney Lane Playground and will leave at 3.05pm Years 3 & 4 need to arrive at 8.
