Stef Reid’s story
We’re thrilled Stef is joining us online – here’s her story, as told on www.stefreid.com.

Stef was born in New Zealand to a Scottish father and English mother, grew up in Toronto, Canada, and settled in the UK in 2010. Stef’s talent and passion for sport were spotted early, and aged 12, she was already dreaming of playing rugby on the world stage. But at 15, Stef was involved in a boating accident. Her life was saved, but her right foot was amputated.

Stef Reid continued her love of sport following her accident, and became a British Paralympic long jumper and sprinter. 

She is a World Champion, four-time Paralympian, triple Paralympic medallist, and five-time world record holder.

Stef has a degree in biochemistry, and her adventures off the track include acting and modelling (including being the first amputee to walk the London Fashion Week catwalk!).

Stef starred in the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice, making it to the quarter finals, and showing the world you can learn to skate with an artificial foot.

Some useful resources ahead of the assembly
Stef has kindly shared some helpful resources which you may wish to explore with children!
