A very warm welcome to St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Primary School Dear Parents/Carers,
It is with great pleasure that I write to you. At St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Primary School we pride ourselves in providing a happy, positive and engaging environment where lessons are active, challenging and relevant. As a “Gold level UNICEF Rights Respecting School”, the child is at the centre of decision making.
We provide learning experiences for children to learn core skills and opportunities for children to apply these skills in other contexts. Our local community and outdoor learning experiences are very important to us. I trust that this handbook gives you a strong picture of our school. Parents and carers play a vital part in their child’s learning and as such we strive to have an open and positive relationship with all of our families.
Throughout the year, regular planned activities play a key part in allowing opportunities to visit the school and to communicate with all of the staff. We fully encourage all of our families to access a wide variety of open programmes in the school throughout the year, where you can be involved with your child’s learning.
Our strong Roman Catholic ethos is at the heart of teaching and learning in the school and as a community this is strengthened through daily prayer, rosary groups and Mass. The school attends Mass twice a month and always for Holy Days of Obligation. We also celebrate Mass at the end of terms and have a Family Mass at the start of the year for all our Primary 1 children.
We have a very proactive Parent Council who plan and deliver events throughout the year, supporting a range of extra-curricular, sporting and other activities. We very much adopt a partnership approach to learning and in fully supporting your child’s needs.
