OUR SCHOOL

Welcome to St Edward’s Church of England Primary School in Castle Donington. St Edward’s is a very special place for all.  Staff, governors, parents and carers work seamlessly together to create an inclusive, happy and successful school where all pupils flourish both socially and academically.

My vision for St Edward’s is to continue to develop the quality of teaching and learning and wider opportunities so that outcomes for pupils remain excellent. I want to ensure pupils leave St Edward’s secure in themselves, ready for the challenge of secondary school and excited about their place in the world and the possibilities that lie before them.

OUR VISION

Our school values are at the heart of our curriculum.  In order to meet the needs of every child in our school, our curriculum is inclusive, ambitious and ensures all can flourish and achieve.

Our vision and values are based on Galatians 5:22

“The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control.”
