St. Stephen's understands the importance of  communication with parents. This is undertaken through our school website, text messaging, emails, surveys and school and class newsletters. We use text messaging for a variety of different types of messages. These messages include details of any changes to clubs or school closures so please keep your contact details up to date and notify the school office of any changes.

You can click here to find our update form, which you can use to let us know if your details change. 

Please check your child's class page for recent newsletters. 

If you have any other ideas on how we could improve our communication further, please let us know.

In the event of severe weather the Headteacher may have to decide whether to close the school.  Please see the School Severe Weather Closure  information for details.  We aim to take this decision at approx. 7:15 am and will communicate through Text2Parents, the website and Stray FM.    

Medicines in School

The school's policy on administering medicine is contained in the St Stephen's Medical Needs Policy.  The school will only administer medicines where a parental consent form has been completed.  If the medicine contains ibuprofen or aspirin it will only be given if prescribed by a doctor, dentist etc and is in the original container.  The school will administer calpol where a consent form has been signed by the parent / carer. 

All medicines should be brought to the office in the morning and collected at the end of the school day.


The safety of children when using the Internet (eSafety) is of paramount importance to our school.  We have a specific page with details of what we do in school and useful sources of information.  See our E-Safety page for more details.
