    A warm welcome back from all the staff at St Edmunds! We hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready for the new school year ahead.

    A special welcome must go to all our new staff and children who have joined across the school. We are very pleased you have joined our school community, and we look forward to working with you all over the next few years!

    We are also excited to share that Zolie in Year 6 has recently been accepted to train and play for Arsenal Woman FC. She received her first Arsenal kit over the Summer holidays and was invited to play in her first tournament held in Swindon. Zolie has been working and training very hard over the last couple of years, and all from the St Edmund's community would like to congratulate her on her efforts. We are incredibly proud of you and are very much looking forward to hearing and watching your rise to the top! 

    Finally, thank you parents, for your patience and understanding with the new gate routines. As restrictions slowly start to ease, and we re-establish school routines, let's stay positive, keep smiling and make this the best school year yet!

  • Goodbye Year 6!

    Published 21/07/21

    Today has been Year 6's last day at St Edmund's.  It is a very strange day today because it is both sad and very exciting at the same time.

    Sad because all of you have been such a big part of St. Edmund’s for a large part of your life. You have spent more time at school with your friends and teachers than you have at home. You might be sad because you are moving to a new school that is different to your friends. It lots of change – new teachers, new classrooms and new friends.

    But – today is also very exciting because although it is the end of your time at St. Edmunds it is the start of a new adventure!

    After the holidays you will all be going to wonderful Secondary Schools where you will meet new friends and have great opportunities.

    We are very proud of all of you. We have watched you grow over the years in height and intelligence, until we see the wonderful young people you have become today.

    Always remember your time at St. Edmund’s.

    Remember our Motto – To Love, Care, Share.

    If you can remember to live by this Motto in all that you do, you will have a great, happy life ahead of you.

    Love your friends and your families, and you will feel loved in return.

    Care for others around you and out in the wider world, and you will be cared for by others

    And Share your wonderful talents that God has given you – put them to good use.

    Come back to visit us to inspire other children when you are doctors, solicitors and teachers.

    All the staff at St. Edmund’s wish you lots of happiness and great success in your new schools and your futures.

                                                                                                                                                        Mrs Johnstone

  • New York, Milan, Paris....Edmonton!

    Published 24/06/21

    This term, Year 6 children have been studying fashion through the ages as part of the Design and Technology curriculum.  Children started by researching fashion design from the Victorian era through to the present day and particularly focused on fashion made from recycled materials. 

    As part of the project, children had to design and make outfits from newspaper.  They then presented their outfits to the rest of Key Stage 2 at a socially distanced fashion show, where a chosen model walked the catwalk and another child presented their idea.  The children worked extremely well to create exciting and imaginative designs and really enjoyed showing off their hard work. 

    Well done to all the children and staff for putting on a great show!

    More photographs can be found in 'Our School Gallery'.

  • Year 5 - My Money Week

    Published 18/06/21

    This week across the school has been My Money Week. This is a national activity week for primary schools that provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in society. It's the highest-profile and most recognised personal finance education initiative in England.

    Across the school, each year group have been working on fantastic projects, which include buying from class shops to visiting new lemonade stands.

    Year 5 have been working all week to plan, budget and organise a tea party for the year group and a lucky few VIPs. On Friday morning, the children spent time making sandwiches, fruit kebabs, sharing treats and decorating the hall in preparation for the party. From the pictures below, you can see a great time was had by all lucky enough to be invited. 

    Children from across the school have worked hard all week, and we are sure there will be some budding entrepreneurs in the future!

    Well done, everyone!

  • 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!
