St Edward's Feast Day 2023



British Values at St Edward's Catholic Primary School


We value the backgrounds of all our pupils and families and of the people in the wider community and our curriculum is used to celebrate these. Through lessons such as drama/role play and Relationship and Health Education (RHE) we develop the British Values of tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. We have regular collective worship which uphold our School Values at St Edward's: Respect, Love and Achieve.




As a whole school we vote for our school council members. This teaches us about democracy and reminds the children how valued their opinions are and how they can play an important role in decisions that are being made in the school. As a group, our school council vote for a variety of activities that take place through the academic year. They will also contribute their ideas of raising money for specific charities. Over the last few years the school have raised money for Macmillan, RSPCA, RNLI, NSPCC, Children in Need and CAFOD.


The children are awarded weekly certificates for demonstrating our School Values of  Respect, Love and Achieve. These are handed out in our Friday morning celebration assembly.


Through the year, individually or as a team, we participate in many sporting events and regularly congratulate our sports players by commenting on how they demonstrate respect for one another.




Children democratically voted, in class, for their School Council members.  The children wrote a short speech and answered any questions from their class peers.

The school organised a RNLI fundraising day in January 2024
