St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School has a distinctive Christian ethos which is at the heart of this School and provides an inclusive, caring and supportive environment where children learn and flourish in a setting shaped by Christian values. We welcome applications from all members of the community and we ask all parents/carers to respect the Christian ethos of our school and its importance to our community.

This admission number has been agreed between the Governing Body and the home Local Authority and applies to the current school year. The Governing Body is required to abide by the maximum limits for infant classes (5, 6 and 7 year olds) ie, 30 pupils per class.
