Head’s letter

Hello, My name is Steve Dew.  I’m really proud in my first Headship to be the head teacher of our school. I started working at CCSJ during September 2013 having worked at schools in the area for the past 8 years and in a Secondary Academy in the City of Nottingham before that.

Headship is a responsibility that I don’t take lightly, I firmly believe that together, teachers, parents and children we can deliver a school for all of the children of Cowley, not just for now, not just for the children of today, but for Cowley, now and for the future.

Our school has bags of potential; we already have many strengths and these include our strong emphasis on our core Christian Values, devised with the whole school community that underpins all aspects of school life:

Through the school values and with the staff at the school we are fully committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to experience the joys of childhood in a nurturing environment, full of  great, hardworking and dedicated staff that are really passionate about the job they do, the children they inspire, the friendships they nurture.

At CCSJ we value every child and encourage them all to develop socially, emotionally, academically and physically to achieve his / her full potential in every aspect of their life.  It is our wish that all of the children to leave CCSJ as life- long learners who have academic skills that enable them to succeed, emotional intelligence that allows them to develop friendships and empathise with others and a love for trying new things, mucking in and having a go!

We will be focused on and also continuing our push to improve the teaching and learning, developing inspirational teachers that give rise to curious, happy and motivated learners – the Church Cowley way.

It couldn’t be a better time to be at CCSJ, as a teacher or a learner. I honestly think that all of the ingredients are there, or thereabouts, we just need them to be mixed in the right order and then given time to infuse – nothing is ever perfect and we’ve lots to do to realise the vision for the long-term future success of the community of Church Cowley – we’re on the road, the proverbial journey has begun.

I hope that you have got a good sense of who we are and what we do at Church Cowley St James C of E Primary school.  If we sound like the sort of school that you’d like to have your children attend or somewhere that you like to visit and see if you can support us achieving our aims, then please come along and see us. I look forward to inviting you into our school very soon.

Steve Dew
