  • Year 5 Learn About Dementia

    Published 26/05/23

    In a heart-warming display of empathy and kindness, our Year 5 students have handcrafted fidget mittens for the residents of Eastbrook Care Home. These have coincided with the children learning about dementia and how to support individuals living with the illness, as their Design and Technology projects aimed to bring comfort and joy to those in need. 

    Under the guidance of Mrs Pope, the mittens were adorned with colourful buttons, soft fabrics and tactile elements, allowing for residents to keep their hands occupied and engaged. 

    A fantastic project which shows the wonderful impact our children can make on our wider community. 

    Great work everyone!

    Published 16/05/23

    St Edmund's is thrilled to share its recent Ofsted inspection over the 21st and 22nd of March 2023. The report confirms what many of us already know: St Edmund's continues to be a good school.

    This report is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students and broader school community. We are committed to ensuring that all our students receive the best possible education, and this report, we believe, is a true reflection of that.

    We want to thank everyone involved for their contribution and support, and we look forward to building on this success in the future.

  • King Charles III Coronation

    Published 05/05/23

    Today children at St Edmund’s came to school dressed in red, white and blue clothes as they took part in different exciting events to celebrate the King’s Coronation. On this historic weekend, when our country welcomed a new ruler, it was a day full of joy and festivities. 

    As a school, we were thrilled to be part of this significant event, and our students were excited to learn about the significance of the Coronation. Children learnt about the coronation traditions and the history and importance of the crown jewels, the robes and the throne, which will all be integral parts of the ceremony.
    In the afternoon, year groups came together for a Coronation party with a traditional snack, dancing and plenty of singing!

    It provided a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn about the traditions and customs of our country and celebrate an important event in our history. We hope that this day will remain etched in our students’ memories and that they will continue to learn about our country’s rich history and traditions.

    Thank you to Ms Sinclair for planning a wonderful day!
