  • The Red Ties Are Back!

    Published 14/10/21

    Last week we were very excited to announce the Autumn Red Ties. Ten children were chosen from Year 6 by their teachers who represented the St Edmund's motto 'Love, Care, Share' each and every day. These children are excellent role models to their peers and stand out not only because of their bright red ties, but because of their effort, resilience and big smiles!

    This week they have completed their first full week of duties and performed excellently. From collecting registers, helping in the dinner hall and setting up games at lunchtime, they have all truly justified why they were chosen. The children will continue in this role until January, when new red ties will be selected!

    Well done everyone on a great first week!

  • Celebrating Harvest Festival

    Published 07/10/21

    Today, the children came together in their phases to celebrate the festival of Harvest. Year 1 and 2 took part in a beautiful liturgy in the hall led by Miss Sar and Miss Conway.

    Year 4 were very lucky to watch a fantastic assembly by Year 3 all about why Harvest Festival is a time to thank God for the food he provides for us. The children spoke confidently and clearly enjoyed performing. They were a credit to their teachers!

    Year 5 and 6 came together virtually to join in a special liturgy led by Miss Pittendreigh. They had time to pray and reflect on what makes Harvest special to so many.

    Thank you to all who have donated food. We will now ensure all donations are passed on to those in need in our local community.

    Every year, the children at St Edmund's mark the harvest season in a special way. This year we shall be having three separate celebrations, allowing all children to be involved within their respective phases.

    A big part of the Harvest Celebration for the children is the donation of items for a good cause. We would love to make this year the biggest yet, after the disruption last year. We would really appreciate if you could send what you can, which might include:

    • Non-perishable food items
    • Disposable nappies, soap, toothpaste etc...
    • Cash donations in a sealed envelope marked 'Harvest Donation'

    We shall ensure that all donations will be passed on to vulnerable people within our Parish. Please can all donations be sent to school as soon as possible and by Wednesday 6th October at the latest.

    We understand that in the current climate it is not always possible to give. Please do not feel under any pressure to donate.

    Thank you in advance for the support you give us in teaching your children the virtues of giving and of Christian charity.

  • 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
