  • Fun At Lunchtime!

    Published 11/06/21

    For the last couple of months, the children at St Edmund's have been very fortunate to have not one but two sports coaches during their lunch hour. The coaches from Foundation Sports, who are an award-winning coaching company, deliver an active lunchtime program. This aims to keep children engaged with organised games and educate children on how to play nicely, resulting in an even more positive lunchtime experience. 

    'I like the sports coaches because they make up games which are fun to play.' (M - Class 5.2)

    'Sports coaches help make the games we play fun and fair. They teach us to play correctly.'(D - Class 6.1)

    I like the sports coaches because they are funny and help us all to play nicely' (P - Class 3.2)

  • Enfield Edible Garden Project

    Published 25/05/21

    Over the last few weeks, the children at St Edmund's have developed green fingers! Across the school, all children in all year groups have taken part in an Enfield Borough project to grow fruit and vegetables. As well as growing strawberries, cucumber, planting a new apple and plum tree, we will soon have our very own greenhouse to ensure this newfound love of gardening is here to stay!

    This project will conclude in some special lessons in a couple of weeks when children will enjoy and taste the fruits of their labour.

    A special thanks to Mrs Jenkins, who is leading the project across the school. ​

  • Lunchtime's Golden Table

    Published 13/05/21

    We are incredibly fortunate at St Edmund's to provide and promote our children with healthy and wholesome lunches. As part of our lunchtime routine, we can also encourage and promote good manners and behaviour whilst at the table. To recognise and celebrate just this, our midday assistants have set up a Golden Table Award where lovely manners and behaviours are rewarded with a 'Golden Ticket'.

    Each Friday, the lucky winners get to sit at a special table where they will be served by the adults and enjoy their lunch on the golden plates and drink from the golden cups. This reward applies to all, whether hot or packed lunches and as you can see from the picture, Year 4 have certainly enjoyed their time today!

  • Red Nose Day 2021

    Published 19/03/21

    We have celebrated Red Nose Day this year by coming to school in our own clothes and making an effort to have 'wacky hair'. We have also searched for St Edmund's Best Joke which was won by Andrew in 4.2.

    The joke was...

    Why did the kid throw the clock out of the window?

    Because they wanted to see time fly! :-)

    Staff have also taken part in a virtual lip sync battle. The adults gave brilliant renditions of Westlife, Queen and Sister Sledge. All of which have brought a big smile to our faces.

    ​As a school we have raised an incredible amount of money and would like to thank you all for your wonderful effort to help those during this challenging time. 

    It has been a marvellous day with lots of laughs!

    Well done everyone!
