Message from the Executive Head teacher

To Pupils, Parents and Carers


It’s a privilege to be the Executive Headteacher for the Federation of Stewart Headlam and Hague Primary Schools.

My aim is to nurture aspirations, raise standards and support ambition so that our children can thrive, progress and achieve their best outcomes. 


Hague Primary  in Bethnal Green and Stewart Headlam Primary in Whitechapel are friendly and welcoming in the heart of the East London community.  Each school has a dedicated and caring staff whose energies are focused on providing the very best teaching, learning, experiences, opportunities and pastoral support for all pupils across the SHH Federation. 


My role is to be the, strategic school leader working in partnership with the Heads of School, range of staff teams and governors to facilitate an ambitious world-class education which provides inspiration and equitable opportunity for all. It means tackling barriers to learning caused by disadvantage and inequality so that all children can be ambitious for their future. The learning goes beyond the classroom. We want children to know they can succeed because they have the necessary skills, attitudes and values to be a good person who contributes to school life and beyond. Our values led ethos is rights respecting so that our children learn to use their voice positively and for good social and environmental causes.


Teachers offer an ever developing, stimulating and engaging curriculum in an environment where pupils feel safe and happy, able to enjoy their learning and friendships. Our curriculum embeds knowledge, skills and values as well as building on each school’s traditions and customs.  The Heads of School and I believe in transparent and trusting relationships between home and school. Good home school communication helps us to act in the best interests of all our children.

Yours sincerely

Judy Knappett
