Welcome to our schools. I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher across the federation of St Edmund’s, St Edmund’s Pre-school and St Joseph’s.
Our schools provide high quality education to approximately 600 children aged 3 to 11 years across the three settings. Our mission statement ‘Learning Together in God’s love by encouraging and supporting one another’ reflects the culture of care that allows every child to flourish academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Whilst our partnership brings great advantages as we share expertise and resources, each school is unique so please visit their separate pages to find out more about each one.

We're back in pre-school after a lovely summer at home, playing with our friends and family. Today we're exploring the small world 'zoo'. This helps us to develop language skills and express our imagination. https://t.co/e5InLqxQva
Look at our stories about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We like to write picture stories to read to each other at circle time. https://t.co/jZF4XnNrZG
What a busy time we've been having in Pre-school. Our caterpillars have hatched and the children released them to 'collect nectar from the flowers' (MC). We also went to the theatre to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar - what fun! https://t.co/IjjeUQinXb
The wonderful adventure wonderland. What fun! https://t.co/cJ4GTxXHTH
From frogs to dinosaurs...what a busy week. The children love the swamp theme and enjoy the smell of the herbs in the swamp. https://t.co/paEgUu34uv
We've been playing in our tuff spot with Chia seeds and thinking about the frog pond in the school vegetable garden. We love the way the slimy chia seeds feel like frog spawn. https://t.co/ULZ13tHtSX
We love learning about life cycles and growing. We're busy watching worms and caterpillars at the moment. Our beans are growing in the garden and we're looking at the frogs in the school garden. Such a lot of growing going on in pre-school this term. https://t.co/VEt7bwPZm3
More Happy Little Walkers! We love walking to school - it helps us to get strong muscles and keep active. Join us by walking, scooting or cycling to pre-school tomorrow. https://t.co/DIxkjFP95G
It's walk to school week this week. We're having great fun, joining in with the Little Feet campaign, encouraging our little ones to walk, scoot or cycle to school - no buggies for us this week! Get your sticker tomorrow for walking to school! https://t.co/hvMf37galA
It's world book week....what a busy week we've got planned: we've made gingerbread men and gingerbread houses with boxes this week so far and it's only Tuesday. More to follow!! https://t.co/0F3u9Urtn9
Another busy day as we head on fast towards half-term break. It was beautiful in the Meadow Classroom today, and everyone enjoyed making necklaces at Forest School. Using the palm drill with Peter was great fun! https://t.co/o4qLwYOJMO
We like to learn new skills. We can make our own snack and wash up the dishes when we've finished. We use real cups and real plates and are very grown up! https://t.co/zWVjVRN71e
Forest School today. It might be cold and wet, but we still love being outside, climbing trees and developing our muscles as we learn to take risks and manage our safety with the help of our teachers. https://t.co/LRXfcYKAa7
We've been having a busy old time here in pre-school. Thinking about the artist Kandinsky, and making wonderful circle pictures with buttons in Explorers Corner. https://t.co/x1dfxDlGDR
We are so pleased to be part of the school family at St Edmund's. Your response to our needs is such an amazing example to set children - they truly are "Learning together in God's Love"

I am so impressed with the way the children are conducting themselves, they are so focussed and want to achieve. Their class teacher has given them so much self-belief.

Thank you so much for all of the help, care and support for Penelope over the past year. She can’t wait to go to ‘big school’ and you have done an excellent job in preparing her for the next step in her learning.
