Stephenson Memorial Primary School is in Howdon, a town situated on thebanks of the River Tyne, in the North East of England. With over 400 pupils on roll, Stephenson Memorial is a two-form entry Primary School providing educational provision from 2 to 11. We are a forward thinking and innovative Primary School. We believe that all of our children have the right to be leaders, to achieve highly and believe in themselves.

Our school is committed to real world learning opportunities that ignite students ’passions. Learners are engaged in collaborative, self-directed learning where teachers act as facilitators.. We draw career opportunities into all aspects of the curriculum to ensure children have the highest of aspirations.We research and use new pedagogies and tools to liberate learning from past conventions to connect learners in new and powerful ways.

Our Journey With Educational Technology

We have been using technology since 2012 throughout our school and have a 1:1 iPad scheme for children from Year 1 to Year 6. The Apple Regional Training Centre is based as our school and in 2018 we recognised as an Apple Distinguished School.

We have always been open to supporting other schools/colleges with their technology journey and can provide support for all types of Virtual Learning Environments and devices.

Our aim is to support Schools/Colleges wherever they are on their technology journey and also with the focus of remote learning.
