I need to inform you that almost every teacher has voted to go out on strike on Wednesday 26th March. This means we cannot safely keep the school open (as there will not be staff qualified to take them), and so school will be closed to children that day.
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 2012 OFSTED inspection – the result of brilliant teamwork by the staff, children, parents and governors.
We are looking forward to our new building being completed in 2015 so we can become two forms of entry throughout, and our 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.
