Weekly Update

  • ANNOUNCEMENTS I have been alerted to the fact that some new Reception parents have not yet had their letters for start dates yet. Please email me directly at headteacher@johnstainer.lewisham.sch.uk with your child’s name and I will let you know what it is. Apologies! ...

Welcome to John Stainer Community Primary School

sue1We 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.

Sue Harte – Headteacher
