Well done on a wonderful school journey week for Year 6, who really pushed and challenged themselves, even though it was wet and cold and muddy! Thank you to Claire and Andy Bond and Toni Cox for looking after them all!
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.
The great Nursery rhyme dress up and parade is going to take place on Tuesday December 3rd. Come to school dressed up as a nursery rhyme character and we will have a parade and all say the rhymes together!
The Winter Wonderland Outdoor disco and fair is going to take place after school on Wednesday 11th of December. Come along and enjoy the snow and the music, and buy items from the stalls for Christmas!
It was wonderful to welcome Marley, a Guide Dog for the Blind into our school and talk to his owner Barry about how he helps him. The money raised form the children's donations will go towards helping to train other dogs to help blind people. Thank you!
The first phase of our new building project is completed and we have planning permission granted for Phase 2! We will eventually have a completely remodelled Victorian building, and a brand new 3 storey modern building to replace our current hall and kitchen!
