Five years old and so many milestones and memories along the way.............

Tissues at the ready - Ben leaves on Friday!

After five years Ben is moving to pastures new. Ben has opened the partnership schools to so many parents through family homework, visits and the blog. I'm sure you will be sad to see him go but I will endeavour to carry on his brilliant work.

"It's the first time I have been able to do something that's just for's quite exhilarating riding a bike"

Sustrans have created an inspiring short film which follows twenty parents from Stepney Partnership schools who learned how to ride a bike last year. We are hoping to follow up the success of this programme with another course next year...there is already a big waiting list!

Creating the Stepney Partnership logo


The Stepney Partnership is almost five years old! While having a clear out of files and folders, I came across these lovely images of the making of the Stepney Partnership logo.
The brilliant logo was created by families from across the partnership schools who took part in the first project to encourage families to get 'out and about' across London.
The logo features pictures of different ways that children and families can learn together, it also makes reference to the logos of all the partnership schools, some of them more easy to spot than others!

Cayley crowned champions of the Stepney Maths League

At the end of five heats this year, children from Cayley finished top of the five Stepney Partnership primary schools in the Stepney Maths League, and will go on to represent Stepney at a Borough final in July!
Well done to all the children from Ben Jonson, Halley, Redlands and Smithy Street who participated in all the heats. The competition was great fun, and really extended children's learning and team work.

Over half-term Stepney Partnership families attended an event put on by Tower Hamlets and Sustrans at Mile End Park Ecology Centre to celebrate bicycling. There were loads of fun activities including a bike which made smoothies using pedal power.

Stepney Bikers

Stepney Partnership parents have come to the end of their bicycling course… what an 8 week journey it has been! With expert training from BikeIt!/Sustrans, parents battled wind and rain to learn how to balance on a bike, and even graduated to riding on the road. Parents also had the opportunity to buy their bikes for a heavily discounted price at the end of the project.
Huge thanks to Bike It! for the funding and the excellent trainers James, Jeremy, Jon, Magda and the rest of the team.
