Our school was inspected on the 17th and 18th January 2024. We are proud to share that under the new inspection framework we are a good school!

We are very happy with the report and wanted to share some highlights with you. The inspection team reports on the following areas: Catholic Life and Mission, Religious Education and Collective Worship. For all areas, our overall judgement was good.

Highlights from each section include:

 Catholic Life and Mission

 ‘The mission statement is known, understood and loved by all pupils at St Edmund’s school. They demonstrate a deep respect for each other and pupils of other faiths within the school. They are happy and confident children who know they are valued and cared for. They are very proud of their work with local food banks and the outreach work they undertake with local care and nursing homes.’

 Religious Education

 ‘Pupils are developing secure knowledge, understanding and skills which reflect the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory. Pupils enjoy their religious education lessons. All age groups demonstrate interest in these lessons and are keen to share their ideas. They show great care and respect for each other. Behaviour is outstanding because all pupils are engaged in their learning.’

 Collective Worship

 ‘Pupils respond well to the experiences of prayer and liturgy provided by the school. They show reverence and are respectful. They understand there are a variety of ways of praying, including the use of scripture, silence, meditation and liturgical music. Each class The Growing in Faith Team work collaboratively with teachers and each other in planning prayer and liturgical services.’


This year at St Edmund’s we have worked hard to enhance our provision for Collective Worship and development of prayer life. We have invested in a brand new prayer area that acts as a base for our GIFT team. We have introduced prayer bags to support children to engage with prayer in the home. Across the school year, children now take part in scheduled Liturgical Prayer sessions based on themes linked to the Liturgical year or themes such as tolerance and respect. This has had a huge impact so far and is on its way to being embedded into life here at St Edmund’s. The report demonstrates that leaders have an accurate understanding of current provision at St Edmund’s and know what steps to take as we continue to move the school forwards.

Thank you to all our parents and carers for the support and encouragement shown to the team. It was wonderful to hear the beautiful comments shared via the parent survey and expressed to the inspectors in person. Thank you to all our children too! The made us so proud sharing their opinions with such confidence. We strive to ensure every child feels loved and cared for and this is what came out the strongest in our feedback.

I would also like to share my appreciation and gratitude to our wonderful staff team. Thank you so much to them for all their hard work in making our school such an amazing place.
