16 March 2022 - Ofsted Report on St Stephen's School

 Read the full Report here

Well done to all the Staff, Children and Families, Academy Councilors and the Bishop Wheeler Trust, St Stephen's has been graded good under all headings. 

The opening words of the Report are: 

"St Stephen’s Catholic Primary Academy is a welcoming and happy place to learn. The school’s motto, ‘learning, living and loving one another in God’s name’, is at the heart of school life. Pupils told us that their school is ‘amazing’. They said teachers help them to have fun in their lessons. Leaders are ambitious for pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who are disadvantaged. All pupils’ achievements are celebrated. The strong nurturing ethos helps pupils to develop confidence and belief in their own abilities."
