St Edmund's Catholic School
At St Edmund’s we are inspired by our Catholic Faith and the Gospel Values of love, equality, justice, reconciliation, mutual respect and service This allows students to flourish in their own way and feel truly valued for who they are. This helps them to achieve their full potential and become proactive and outstanding members of our society.
While academic outcomes are incredibly important to every student’s future success, we believe that our pupils should develop in all areas to reach their full potential. We are guided by ‘Our Moral Compass’ which encompasses Nurture, Study, Enrichment and the Wider World.
What we do:
- Nurture the Catholic Faith as a community in which everyone exhibits dignity and respect, and has a thirst for social justice through personal growth and reflection.
- Embed a lifelong love of learning and pursuit of academic excellence.
- Instil in each pupil the values of ambition, diligence and integrity to live happy and fulfilling lives.
- Develop an understanding of our place in the ‘Wider World’ recognising and celebrating the uniqueness of every child.
