Welcome to our schools. I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher across the federation of St Edmund’s, St Edmund’s Pre-school and St Joseph’s.
Our schools provide high quality education to approximately 600 children aged 3 to 11 years across the three settings. Our mission statement ‘Learning Together in God’s love by encouraging and supporting one another’ reflects the culture of care that allows every child to flourish academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Whilst our partnership brings great advantages as we share expertise and resources, each school is unique so please visit their separate pages to find out more about each one.
– Mrs Maria Kemble, Executive Headteacher
We're continuing to enjoy following the success of the women who are competing in the Euro 2022 tournament. Here's a few football themed activities which might be of interest for children at home over the summer break. https://t.co/biuVPU5MCX
@RavencroftSarah Yes of course
Today, on the final day of this academic year we have said farewell to Mr Francis who is retiring from teaching after 37 years. What an incredible commitment to the profession, supporting so many children to flourish over those years. We wish him well for the future. https://t.co/Jvv2kk7l7G
The children in The Nest had a great time on their trip to the Abbey gardens this morning. They enjoyed exploring and climbing and you can see from the photos, they shared plenty of smiles and laughter too. What a great way to spend the last day of term. https://t.co/XJvGijzQGZ
Thanks to the Eco council's hard work & the commitment of our children, we have helped fight the climate crisis by incorporating our climate pledges from November into everyday life. Most children even surpassed their pledge, taking on extra environmentally friendly practices!
Today we said farewell to Mr Scales who has been a hugely valued member of our St Edmunds school community for the past 11 years. We're sad to see him go and wish him much continued success in his teaching career. Thank you for all you've done for our children, staff & parents https://t.co/PCRvkDHepY
@DuganMarcella It's been great to have her as part of our St Eds school community. We wish her well in her next school chapter. Keep that love of reading Laila
@Magfoot77 Time flies when you're having fun! We'll miss you all too. Good luck in your next school chapter Jimmy.
The grown ups weren't going to be left out of the cold water foot spa treatments today either! https://t.co/oZOs4qsOKm
Cold water foot spas helped to keep lots of us cool today. What a simple but fabulous idea (don't tell the children, but it also saved us the job of washing out their drawers too!) https://t.co/0bmSC4IJLr
Hot weather at break time meant we took shelter in the shade with ice pops. No one was complaining about an ice pop treat today! https://t.co/uZbTmAc8of
Cold water foot spas helped Moses class stay cool this afternoon! https://t.co/P4NrbaikQM
Learning about UV light. https://t.co/fDesyHF3lt

Leavers farewell pizza tea! It will be sad to say goodbye our supportive parents, after the transition visits. We hope they always remember St Joe's school fondly! https://t.co/Ys44S6nuDw
After an emotional leaver's assembly the children are enjoying a pizza tea! https://t.co/DBsuONhy57
Lower Key Stage 2 had lots of fun at their sports afternoon. Parent's races were competitive and run in good spirits! Even the toddlers got involved, well done Sonny!! https://t.co/dhX5xdpOLj
Fantastic start to our sports days. The children had fun competing in running races and obstacle races. The morning ended with some competitive egg and spoons races for the Mums and Dads! https://t.co/xcQskPMrfc

Well done to the football team for their win today! Mr LS was so proud of their team mentality and sportsmanship. Special mention to Charlie for being awarded most valuable player of the tournament! https://t.co/WWBYRc5JbW
Dear Parents, School will re-open to key worker and vulnerable pupils only on Tuesday 5th January 2021. For full details please see the letter from the Headteacher and Governing body on the website: https://t.co/1bpqp4PS4l
We're back in pre-school after a lovely summer at home, playing with our friends and family. Today we're exploring the small world 'zoo'. This helps us to develop language skills and express our imagination. https://t.co/e5InLqxQva
Look at our stories about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We like to write picture stories to read to each other at circle time. https://t.co/jZF4XnNrZG
What a busy time we've been having in Pre-school. Our caterpillars have hatched and the children released them to 'collect nectar from the flowers' (MC). We also went to the theatre to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar - what fun! https://t.co/IjjeUQinXb
The wonderful adventure wonderland. What fun! https://t.co/cJ4GTxXHTH
From frogs to dinosaurs...what a busy week. The children love the swamp theme and enjoy the smell of the herbs in the swamp. https://t.co/paEgUu34uv
We've been playing in our tuff spot with Chia seeds and thinking about the frog pond in the school vegetable garden. We love the way the slimy chia seeds feel like frog spawn. https://t.co/ULZ13tHtSX
We love learning about life cycles and growing. We're busy watching worms and caterpillars at the moment. Our beans are growing in the garden and we're looking at the frogs in the school garden. Such a lot of growing going on in pre-school this term. https://t.co/VEt7bwPZm3
More Happy Little Walkers! We love walking to school - it helps us to get strong muscles and keep active. Join us by walking, scooting or cycling to pre-school tomorrow. https://t.co/DIxkjFP95G
It's walk to school week this week. We're having great fun, joining in with the Little Feet campaign, encouraging our little ones to walk, scoot or cycle to school - no buggies for us this week! Get your sticker tomorrow for walking to school! https://t.co/hvMf37galA
It's world book week....what a busy week we've got planned: we've made gingerbread men and gingerbread houses with boxes this week so far and it's only Tuesday. More to follow!! https://t.co/0F3u9Urtn9
Another busy day as we head on fast towards half-term break. It was beautiful in the Meadow Classroom today, and everyone enjoyed making necklaces at Forest School. Using the palm drill with Peter was great fun! https://t.co/o4qLwYOJMO
We like to learn new skills. We can make our own snack and wash up the dishes when we've finished. We use real cups and real plates and are very grown up! https://t.co/zWVjVRN71e
Forest School today. It might be cold and wet, but we still love being outside, climbing trees and developing our muscles as we learn to take risks and manage our safety with the help of our teachers. https://t.co/LRXfcYKAa7
We've been having a busy old time here in pre-school. Thinking about the artist Kandinsky, and making wonderful circle pictures with buttons in Explorers Corner. https://t.co/x1dfxDlGDR
We are so pleased to be part of the school family at St Edmund's. Your response to our needs is such an amazing example to set children - they truly are "Learning together in God's Love"

I am so impressed with the way the children are conducting themselves, they are so focussed and want to achieve. Their class teacher has given them so much self-belief.
Parent - St Joseph's
Thank you so much for all of the help, care and support for Penelope over the past year. She can’t wait to go to ‘big school’ and you have done an excellent job in preparing her for the next step in her learning.
