At St Edmund’s we strive for all our children to achieve their best academically as they progress in their learning journey. We also seek to recognise, value and nurture the individual qualities of each child. Through our weekly focus on the Federation’s values which identify the ‘Characteristics of an Effective Learner’, we teach, identify and celebrate a number of essential life skills which our children develop as members of our school community. Our accreditation as a Silver Rights Respecting School demonstrates the importance we place on supporting our children to understand the rights and responsibilities that they have as a member of our school community and as a global citizen in the wider world...

We enjoyed welcoming Lucie Bullen from Make Some Music into school to lead our assembly today. Focusing on learning the musical terminology forte and piano, we were repeating rhythms, singing songs and Penny even joined Lucie in playing the violin. https://t.co/2jJelzvp2K

Yr1 used the text The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis & @gwenmillward as their stimulus at Forest School today. There were fishing rods being whittled, children fishing for their own Bog babies and lots of talk about supporting one another to become more confident when climbing a tree. https://t.co/wI0FLofPRK
