St Edward's Catholic Primary School

Our Catholic Mission

Our Mission Statement is for all our children, staff and families to 'Achieve in God's Love'


St Edward's Catholic Primary School is at the heart of a community, rooted in its core Gospel values. Our children, by their actions, grow in the image of God.


Our core Gospel values are:







(as voted for by parents, children, governors and staff in November 2017)


Our school rules are based on these values.

Children link these to the Gospels as well as to modern day role models.

St. Edward's Denominational Inspection Report March 2020: We are so proud that our school has been graded GOOD, with an OUTSTANDING Catholic life in the school.

Our school prayer is said together at the start of every collective worship

The Gospel of St John Chapter 10 Verse 10: I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

CROWING OF MARY - MAY 2023 - This past term, our children at St Edward's have been celebrating the month of BLESSED VIRGIN MARY! During a recent collective worship, the children crowned Mary with beautiful flowers.

Dear Lord We all thank you for giving us the soil to help our seeds grow, the rain to hydrate our plants, the sun to feed and grow our plants as well. Lord, we thank you for letting us have food to eat but let us remember the people that do not have as much as us and help us to be kind in our thoughts, words and deeds. Amen
