Kirkstall St. Stephen’s C of E (Voluntary Aided) Primary School


Welcome to Kirkstall St Stephen’s VA C of E Primary School. We are a caring school with children’s wellbeing at the centre of everything we do here. There is a great community feel at the school. We have a fantastic team of welcoming staff, supportive and proactive parents and as a result: creative, engaged and happy pupils. We continually strive to improve our standards in school across the cores areas of Reading, Writing, Maths and Science. Over the last year we have had a whole school focus on Reading.

However, we know there is more to education than just the core standards, and pride ourselves on delivering a rich and varied curriculum to our pupils which engages, excites and motivates. We have a full programme of enrichment activities both weaved throughout our curriculum and also through the many extra-curricular clubs which run across the year. In our most recent inspections we recieved a 'Good' from Ofsted (2014) and an Outstanding from SIAMs (2015).
