St Stephen’s CE RSA Academy


Dear Parents, Please find below our latest Parent Guidance for September 21. 

Parent Information Guide September 21

Our Year 4 children are leaving this week! We have all enjoyed teaching them so much, and we'll all really miss them! They have worked so hard over the last 5 or even 6 years here at St Stephen's. Here is their wonderful leavers assembly! We hope you enjoy it, and WELL DONE YEAR 4!

  At Stephen’s CE RSA Academy we are proud to be a distinctly Christian Church school serving a diverse cultural community. Our curriculum is rich and exciting using our Christian values to guide learning. Our values ensure pupils learn to be honest, respectful citizens who care for one another and our planet. Our motto, Achieve, aspire and care for one another, is continually reiterated to encourage our children to achieve and flourish. We are a happy school with dedicated staff who work hard to meet the needs of all our pupils.

At St Stephen's CE RSA Academy we are committed to the Christian ethos - that every child is special in the eyes of God and we teach that all people should love, care for and respect one another and our planet.

It is our ambition that all our pupils use our 5 Christian values Love, Peace, Hope, Compassion and Forgiveness to achieve our vision and mission.

‘A New Commandment I give you, ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ John 13:34

It is from this Commandment and the teachings of Jesus that we teach our children five Christian values.

    “An RSA school is a school with soul. Our overarching philosophy is to give each pupil a complete and generous education embracing the traditional academic subjects, the arts and sport and subjects that provide insights into the ethics of good living. We want our schools to be inclusivenetworked“green” and demonstrably mission-led – by which we mean committed to the values of individual flourishing and social progress.” Guy Shears, CEO Central Royal Society of Arts Academy Trust. 

  We ensured that all of our children had access to laptops over the last few months. Please retain the equipment to support your child with their homework and in the event of a bubble closure. We will continue to upload work onto Seesaw for this purpose.  If you are experiencing technical issues you can contact IT support at who can also provide support.

We have a tab on this website 'Parents Guide to School Closures' signposting parents to all manner of support available for our local community from Financial support to Mental Health and Wellbeing. Please look there for further information.

If you require further help or guidance please contact the school where we are happy to help in any way we can. 

Take Care, 

Mrs Sarah Callanan
