  • New School Year, New Red Ties!

    Published 23/09/22

    Last week we were very excited to announce the Autumn Red Ties. Twelve 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!

  • Introducing Nugget and Miles!

    Published 06/07/22

    Last week Mr Kenny visited Year 4 and heard that the children had been tasked with budgeting for a pet to be bought for our school community. At first, he was stunned by the suggestions of wild exotic animals coming from South America or Asia; however, it was finally agreed that we could handle and afford some school fish as a school.

    Mr Kenny and Mrs Kenny took a selection of children from Year 4 to Edmonton Green to purchase all that was needed. This way, the children were able to make last week's learning during 'My Money Week' come to life as well as develop other skills, as they will also have to look after our new pets.

    As the children went through the Edmonton Green and made new friends everywhere, they found the pet shop and purchased two Goldfish. After much debate, they have been called Nugget and Miles. 

    Make sure you keep your eyes around the school to greet our new friends

    Published 30/06/22

    Earlier this week, a selection of children from across our school were chosen to go and visit Tate Britain. They travelled via public transport into London and experienced just some of what our wonderful city has to offer. Miss Sinclair and Mrs Pope, who organised the trip, brought some of our most talented artists to explore the Tate and continue developing their drawing skills.

    All the children had a fantastic day, which I am sure will last with them for years to come.

  • Exciting News From The Eco-Committee

    Published 22/06/22

    We are pleased to tell you that St Edmund's Eco-Committee has been awarded the Eco-Schools Green Flag.

    Miss Roberts and the Eco-Committee have worked very hard all year to raise these important issues. They have met regularly, led litter pick-up sessions, suggested how to make our school more green and impressed the Review Panel. So much so that they received the Green Flag with distinction, which is the highest award you can get at this point. Click on the tab below to read the full review panel. You can also click here to go and see some work the Eco-Committee have been doing on their particular page on our website. 

    Eco-Schools Review Panel Comments

    We are very pleased to tell you that you and your Eco-Committee at St Edmunds Catholic Primary School have been awarded an Eco-Schools Green Flag.

    We reviewed your application and noted the following:

    It was great to see so many students being part of your Eco-Committee and meeting 15 times this academic year already is a fantastic achievement, well done! It was lovely to see all of your minutes on your schools website. It was lovely to see so many young people completing your Environmental Review.

    We also loved hearing how your Eco-Committee wrote their thought and findings and communicated their findings on the school website, this shows that their work is valued. We loved how all of your Eco-Committee were involved in creating your Action Plan and your 3 topics.

    Biodiversity – Installing a bug hotel on your school grounds is a very pupil-friendly activity that is engaging and can really make a school community appreciate, and then care for, our smallest friends!

    Waste – Your school is now recycling more than ever and this is due to the hard work of your Eco-Committee! We loved your idea of a fashion show, creating garments made from recycled and reusable materials. The photographs look like everyone had worked really hard but had so much fun taking part.

    Litter - it is great to see that you have done plenty of litter picks, and you now have so much less litter around your school grounds. Your curriculum links are very strong, and we loved reading how 56 children in year 6 participated in bikeability and now have the skills to ride safely and environmentally friendly to school.

    We loved how children in year 2 learned all about recycling and sorted waste materials into the correct bins and are now more aware when it comes to correctly recycling. We loved looking at and reading through all of your amazing evidence that you have uploaded. Your informing and Involving work is very good, you have clearly worked with several outside organisations and charities and involve parents as much as possible by keeping them up to date with your progress through your school website. We loved reading about your greatest overall success being how the children now love to litter pick and more and more children want to join your Eco-Committee and this is really a testament to staff at your school who have demonstrated that being eco-friendly doesn't have to be difficult and no doubt created a future generation of environmentalists in the process- well done!

    I hope you and your Eco-Committee take great pride in your achievements, when listed it's almost astonishing how many there are - everyone involved should be incredibly proud of the changes they have made! We would have loved to see some supporting evidence for Monitoring and Evaluating, to bring your wonderful achievements to life, please ensure that these are showcased on your Eco-Board and website.

    Congratulations to everyone for the great work you have managed to do, especially throughout the pandemic and lockdown. You should all be very proud of your amazing work and the great application you have submitted.

    You are most definitely a worthy Eco-Schools with Distinction Green Flag Award winner!

  • The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations!

    Published 28/05/22

    On the last day of term, our whole school community came together to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Staff and pupils came to school wearing red, white or blue and took part in a full day of fun activities. 

    In the morning, children enjoyed some traditional jam sandwiches, jelly and squash in the playground whilst watching and competing in ‘The Great British Jubilee Sing Off’. Each year group performed a song from the past 70 years and were judged by Mrs Johnstone, Mrs Higgins and Mrs Spinazolla. The morning finished with the whole school singing the national anthem.

    After a special school lunch, Phase groups worked together to provide a range of creative activities including making crowns / jewels or learning dances from the past 70 years.

    It certainly was an enjoyable day for all and one which will be remembered for years to come!

    Have a look in 'Our School Gallery' for more photographs of our day.
