The pupils have been facing the changes in the weather with their usual resilience ... and buttoned up coats! We have not let the rain and damp dampen our spirits as we engage positively with all our learning experiences.
Over the term, look out for your children coming home with our postcards which celebrate pupils learning behaviours and our focus rights. Enjoy celebrating these together!
We have lots to share with you again in our newsletter.
Read on to see how learners at Stepney Park 'are ambitious' as they develop along their learning journey.
Don't forget to go to the Parents page for further updates on opportunities in school and across Tower Hamlets.
We will be putting out all our unmarked jumpers on Monday 4th October, for parents to come and look through.
Please wait until 9:00am when the bell goes. We will then let parents through via the Smithy Road main entrance to look through the clothes. We encourage all parents to come and look as there are many different jumpers, coats and bags.
If it rains, we will put them out on the following day.
Whilst all staff regularly remind children to remember their things, we must encourage them to be independently responsible for their own belongings. This is helped by their things being labelled and family members reminding them of the importance and value in taking care of them. We cannot return possessions which are not named, and pupils cannot find them.
A reminder that we start our breakfast club next week. We have an updated section on our website reminding parents of the wrap-around provision we provide for before and after school.
