A SCHOOL WHERE EVERY CHILD FEELS SAFE AND SUPPORTED BY AN ENVIRONMENT THAT NURTURES CALMNESS AND REFLECTION
Inspired by Psalm 46 “Be still and know that I am God”, St Edmund’s first “CARE” value ensures every child feels safe and supported by an environment that nurtures calmness and reflection. We believe in the explicit teaching of character and behaviour education as central to establishing and maintaining this special atmosphere. There is a calm, purposeful manner in the building, one of high expectations where no one is left behind.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phillipians 4: 13) shows all students that they can truly aspire to be their own personal best. This is demonstrated by the excellent teaching coupled with strong pastoral support, ensuring all students feel safe and know success.
St Edmund’s isatruly diverse community, where uniqueness is celebrated and a real sense of “family “ underpins our work. In the words of Christ we teach our young people to “love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12) Our curriculum is designed to ensure all students can succeed, whilst being stretched and challenged to think for themselves and respect the thoughts and values of others. In short, we are preparing our young people to thrive in the 21st century: in their work, in their relationships, in their faith.”
At St Edmund’s we know how important the time spent outside the classroom will be in developing a fully rounded, happy member of the community. We ask each of our students to use their “God-given talents to serve others” (1 Peter 4:10) by taking an active role in academy life. From our CARE Award, Duke of Edinburgh, Sports, Drama, Debating to Robot Wars or looking after Edie (the school dog!), there is a club for everyone.
