Welcome to John Stainer Community Primary School



We are very proud to be a harmonious, richly multi-cultural, innercity primary school with more than 32 languages spoken and more than 34 cultures represented.

We were delighted to be graded as outstanding in all areas of our last OFSTED inspection – the result of brilliant teamwork by the staff, children, parents and governors.

Our beautiful new building with enormous glass geodesic dome on the roof has meant we can become two forms of entry throughout, and so more local children have the opportunity to learn in a really beautiful and exciting environment.

I look forward to meeting with you at one of our open days, if you are not already part of the John Stainer family. I hope we will forge a strong home and school partnership that will enable your child to make amazing progress, life-long friends and become resilient and highly skilled citizens for the future.

Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday 7th February. Teachers and parents play a crucial role in keeping children safe online and we recommend all parents  attend our online safety workshop. The session will be held on Monday 30th January 18:30- 19:10 and repeated on Wednesday 1st February 09.10-09:50.

Announcement - School Council

The School Council are trying to make our school safer by taking down the number plates of drivers parking illegally on the road in the morning. We also regularly invite traffic enforcement officers down and many parents have been ticketed. Please abide by the law and keep our children

Announcement - No scooters

No scooters are allowed on school premises because of the high number of accidents and dangerous driving by children not being controlled. All cyclists must dismount and wheel their bikes into the playground. Children must take their bikes around the back of the school.
