Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to St Edward's Catholic Primary School.

My name is Mrs Joanne Kennett. I am the Headteacher of St Edward's Catholic Primary School. Our school is vibrant and celebrates its cultural diversity and the many rich  languages spoken by many of our families.  St Edward's has just over 400 children with two classes per year group. Our children start in Reception. We have very good links with our local feeder nursery settings. I hope that you are able to find out as much information about our school, from this new website.


I am very proud to be the headteacher of St Edward's Catholic Primary with its wonderful children, hardworking staff, supportive governing body and all within a beautiful setting with its extensive grounds. The school has excellent links with St Edward's Catholic Church. Father Denis is our parish priest who celebrates our Masses and is a governor of our school.


As members of staff we are continually striving to be the very best that we can possibly be, in whatever important role we play within St Edward's. We welcome positive and constructive feedback and ideas to help us make improvements. This year we are working collaboratively with St Jude's, St Paul's Catholic Primary, St Bernard's and St Alban's by reviewing each other's schools. This helps us to share good practice and to support various areas of school life.


At St Edward's we are one big family and ensure that however we learn and whatever we do, we always put 'Jesus at the heart of all that we do' (School Mission statement).
