Headteacher Welcome


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the website for St Edward’s RC Primary School.


There is much to celebrate at St Edward’s R.C. Primary School. Our school is a welcoming school where people are helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. Our school is a hive of creatively and excellence where the children are very happy and enjoy learning. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of governors, teachers, teaching assistants and other staff who strive to ensure that every child is successful, confident and responsible, equipped with all the skills they need to continue on their future learning journey.


Gospel values and our clear Mission Statement, Learning through Caring with God’s love, underpins all that we do. We work collaboratively with parents, carers and our local parish Sacred Heart, to ensure that our children are nurtured to understand that they are unique and a truly special gift from God. We dearly value this partnership and the support and contribution they make to school life. Due to an effective home, school and parish work relationship, we are able to provide a happy, caring and effective learning environment, where expectations and standards are high. We have carefully designed our curriculum to develop key skills, creativity and spirituality, encouraging confidence and opportunities for children to be excited about learning and challenged to achieve their very best.


We hope that you enjoy looking around our website – although this is only a tiny glimpse of how very special our school is and we welcome any visitors to see our school in action.  If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
