I am pleased to announce that St Edmund's has recently achieved the Bronze Healthy Schools award and even more exciting… the Silver School Travel Plan!

St Edmunds supports healthy, safe and sustainable travel to school. We have a school travel plan to monitor student and staff travel to school and to coordinate a cohesive action plan to help promote and facilitate our objectives.

At St Edmunds we are not ‘anti-car’ but interested in making our community aware of their choices. We would like parents to think about not to driving to school, every day, and to ask, if you do drive, to consider the safety of our school community and not park or stop directly outside the school.  

We feel that our STP addresses issues raised as part of ‘Every Child Matters’ and recent reporst on childhood obesity. It also works in conjunction with our school’s Healthy Schools status.

At St Edmunds we run address the issues of Road Safety in a number of ways, including, assemblies for KS1 and KS2 about using the Highway Code to cross the road safely. Children in Year 6 under go lessons and practical experience of this in Bike ability.

The Road Rangers have also taken part in Road safety operations with the police and created and delivered feedback on this at assemblies and for our school website.

At Junior Citizens workshops, children have observed and taken part in activities and workshops focusing on a range of issues relevant to their up-coming transition to Secondary school, for example, safe and respectful conduct and behaviour on Public Transport.

Parentzone gave a very exciting and informative assembly to KS2 about being Internet Legends. They took us to Interland and we met some of the creatures that live there, some of whom don't always do the right thing on the internet! They taught us that we have to be "SHARP, ALERT, SECURE, KIND, BRAVE!"

There is an Interland game that you can play on this link bellow.

and information for parents can be found bellow.

Members of Code Club led the assembly for Safer Internet Day on 11th February, focussing on exploring our online identities including our avatars and usernames.​ We thought about what was and wasn't safe to share online.

We celebrated Safer Internet Day on 11th February. Some of the children made posters describing their online avatars. They explained why they had chosen them to reflect their personality without giving away any personal information.​

Safer Internet Day

At St Edmund’s School, we take online safety extremely seriously. We believe that it is the right of all children to feel safe and secure when using technology.

We teach children to use the Internet and other technologies safely, and we show them how to behave in an appropriate manner. They know what to do if they feel uncomfortable with anything they see or hear either online or through other technology such as mobile phones.

It is important to encourage a healthy lifestyle with regard to the use of technology, and teach children about the risks of exposure to inappropriate content or too much time in front of a screen.

We show children how to keep their data and security safe, and we teach them to be critical of the things they see online.

Our online safety policy and computing policy hold detailed information about how we ensure our children remain safe in their use of technology. You can download them below.

If you have any questions or queries about online safety then contact Yvonne Pearson who is the online safety officer for the school.
