Welcome

Jessop and Stockwell Primary Schools became a formal federation in September 2014 however, they have been working collaboratively for many years; both schools continue to maintain their distinctive identity.

Lilian Umekwe is the Executive Headteacher of the Jessop Stockwell Federation. Attached to the schools are two Children’s Centres which are managed by Clare Hudson, the Strategic Partnership Manager.

The federation takes pride in its wonderful pupils with an inspiring and creative curriculum and state-of-the-art learning environments. Stockwell is a 3 form entry which was recently graded “Good” by Ofsted. Jessop is a 2 form entry primary school which was judged “Outstanding” by Ofsted in 2012. Our objective is to deliver a broad, balanced and imaginative curriculum in an environment conducive to learning and with a clear and determined focus on Working Together to Achieve Excellence.
