    Published 19/01/22

    We are proud to share with you all that St Edmund's has recently been re-awarded its Quality Mark Accreditation.

    The Quality Mark Award promotes, supports and celebrates progress and improvements made by a school in English and Mathematics. To achieve a Quality Mark, schools have to undergo an assessment by an external accredited assessor against 10 'elements' of the Quality Mark framework. These cover key aspects of the school's improvement plan, including the identifications and analysis of the school's needs; strategic planning, target setting for improvement; intervention and support for pupils underachieving or under-attaining; provision of quality in both teaching and resources; staff development; and active engagement with families. Effective monitoring and evaluation are also required - particularly to achieve renewal.

    This award highlights just some of the fantastic work in St Edmund's, and we should all be delighted that this has been recognised.

    A huge well done to the whole St Edmund's family!

    More information about the Quality Mark Award can be found here.

  • 'Dream Believe and Succeed'

    Published 12/01/22

    Earlier this week, children from Year 4, 5 and 6 were invited to attend a very special theatre production at the Millfield Theatre. 

    The production was an exciting opportunity for children to see a live performance from the 'Dream Believe, Succeed' project, which is funded by the Mayor's Young Londoners Fund. The show was filled with amazing singing and incredible choreography, as pupils watched the story of well-known fairytale characters embark on a journey of fitting in, creating friendships and making right choices. 

    It was a fantastic treat and great way to start the new term. All 130 children who attended loved the experience and represented the school brilliantly. Great work everyone!

    Here are a few quotes of what children thought of the show:

    "I absolutely loved it. It was very funny!"

    "The music was great, I just wanted to start dancing!"

    "The dancing was cool, they were very good dancers!"

    "I had never been the theatre before. It was good fun, and hopefully we can go again."

  • Christmas Has Arrived!

    Published 15/12/21

    Unfortunately, this year KS2 could not all come together to perform their Christmas Carol Concert in the Church. However, the children and staff have been working very hard over the last few weeks to learn some very special songs, which we are very excited to bring to you virtually. Today in school, our whole community watched it at the same time, in phases, and even though we are still separated, there was a lovely feeling of togetherness.

    So grab a cup of tea, sit back, and we hope you enjoy the KS2 Christmas Carol Concert 2021.

     

    The KS1 Christmas Nativity is often one of the highlights of the year. However, due to our ongoing efforts to keep everyone safe, we again decided to make this year's performance virtual. All the staff and children have been working very hard over the last few weeks to learn about this special time of year. They have also been learning some joyful songs which they wanted to share with everyone at home.

    So grab another cup of tea, and we hope you enjoy the KS1 Christmas Nativity!

  • Wake Up Shake Up

    Published 06/12/21

    Over the past six weeks, some children from Year Three and Year Four have participated in very special fitness sessions. 'Wake Up Shake Up', which 'Effective Transition' has led, is designed to give all pupils a full-body workout at the same time as reinforcing the key messages of keeping healthy. The fun-packed sessions motivate pupils and help to understand that keeping active is a vital part of staying healthy. All the children who have taken part had thoroughly enjoyed making new friends and done brilliantly, even when it was freezing outside! 


    A huge thank you to Coach Terry for leading the club!

  • Blingwear Arts

    Published 03/12/21

    This morning class 6.2 took part in a two-hour creative workshop to introduce children to the history of graffiti art and give them the chance to develop their own piece with guidance from an experienced artist. There were also discussions on careers in the arts and the ways we can make our ideas a reality. 

    Children used a variety of materials to create their own design for a business logo. This included using spray cans, stencils, Posca paint pens and airbrushes. It has been a fantastic and exciting morning for all, and we know Class 6.1 are even more excited now and are eagerly awaiting their turn next week. Thank you to Edmonton Community Partnership for helping to bring this opportunity to St Edmund's.

  • Sporting Success

    Published 01/12/21

    Well done to the Year 5 and 6 girls’ football team!

    Last Friday they took part in a Girls' tournament at the nearby Power League. They played five matches in their group and won all of them scoring the most goals in the tournament. They then went on to play in the semi-final against Galliard and won 2-0. In the final we played a resilient team from Eversley, however a fantastic effort from the girls meant St Edmund's won 3-0!

    By winning the Enfield tournament, we are now through to the regional finals! 

    A great effort by all the team, excellent team work, and we are all very proud of you!

  • St Edmund's Day

    Published 22/11/21

    Yesterday was a very special day for our whole school community as we celebrated and remembered St Edmund. St Edmund's day, which is celebrated around the world on the 20th November each year, is a day to remember his sacrifice, faith and strength to not denounce Christ to the invading Danes. St Edmund was loved by his people for his loving, caring nature and each year we remember his story and try to learn from his example. 

    Children in school have been retelling St Edmund's story through role play, posters, poems and writing, as well as all joining a very special virtual assembly led by Miss Pittendreigh. There was even some time to enjoy some special treats and a class party.

    During the assembly Aysha-Rei, who is in Year 6, shared with us all exactly what it means to be a St Edmund's pupil. It was a lovely piece of writing and demonstrates the special community we have.

    'I have been in this school since Reception. Over the years, I have not only made great friends, but made great memories. To be a St Edmund's child to other people looking in, may seem like being a child at any other school, but it is not. St. Edmund's is not only a school or community, it is a family, it's a home. To be a St. Edmund's child means to be someone who is comfortable being themselves and who is celebrated for it! I am proud to be a St Edmund's child, and I wouldn't change a thing!'

    Please make sure to ask your child about our special day, and we hope you all had a great St Edmund's Day too!

  • Year 6 And The Chocolate Factory

    Published 18/11/21

    This week Year 6 were lucky enough to go and visit The Chocolate Museum in Brixton. This linked to their Topic unit, which this term is all about the Mayans. Children had the opportunity to learn more about the history of the Mayan civilization and even made their own dark chocolate slab, which they could then take home. There was also lots of chocolate tasting!

    Both classes had a great time, and all the adults shared that the children were a credit to the school! 

    Well done everyone!

    Each week children are chosen by their class teachers to be the 'Star of the Week.' They are chosen for many reasons, including following our school rules 'Ready, Respect and Safe' or by demonstrating our school motto 'Love, Care, Share.' These winners each week are a great example to their peers and make all the adults in St Edmund's very proud. As well as getting a particular certificate, the children receive a special reward in school, and a text message is sent home so that the celebrations can continue.

  • A Busy Week!

    Published 04/11/21

    Pupils have been taking part in lots of different activities across school, making for a very exciting first week back!

    On Monday and Tuesday, Year 1 went on their first-ever school trip. They visited our local library in Edmonton Green. They walked all the way and were able to enjoy an afternoon reading and listening to short stories. They all had a fantastic time and looked very smart in their school uniform and high-vis jackets.

    Each day this week, children in Year 6 have been working hard to complete their Level 1 and Level 2 Cycling proficiency. Pupils had to complete a number of activities where they learn and develop the skills needed to be safe when cycling on the road. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their lessons and well done to those who have achieved their certificates.

    Finally, well done to Thomas, Kwaku and Emmanuel who attended the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation half-term holiday camp. They took part in a number of different NFL games and were rewarded with some amazing goodies at the end of the week. They all had a great time and said they would recommend it to everyone in future. So keep an eye out for future opportunities!

    Well done everyone on a great first week back. Now enjoy a rest this weekend! :-)
