At St. Edmund's Catholic Primary School,  we place the child at the centre of all we do; 'the child first, always'.  Our ultimate aim is to develop the full potential of all our children, leading to their life-long activities being guided by the Spirit and presence of Christ, in the service of God and of others. 

Our Catholic school is a welcoming and safe community, concerned with the education of the whole child.  We strive to help them achieve their full potential and aim to equip them with self-confidence, drive, compassion and resilience in both their journey with us, and as they move onto their next stage of learning.

We ensure that all children know and feel they are part of many families, their own family, the school family and God's family.  We want them to know they belong and that they are cared for.  We want them to be the best that they can be.
