Edwalton Primary School is a mainstream setting for pupils aged 5-11, with two classes per year group. We are part of the Flying High Academy Trust.
We believe that to expect school to be a happy, purposeful place purely by chance is unrealistic. It needs to be a positive part of school policy.... as a school we constantly strive towards encouraging every individual to feel a sense of belonging and worth, whilst displaying respect for others, tolerance and support.
Our main aim is for children to be happy and successful. For children to be happy, they need to have a good self-image, a feeling that they are valued and that they are making progress. For children to be successful, the staff have to cater for all the different aspects of a child’s development - physical, social, academic, spiritual and religious - we are concerned that each child should get the most from and contribute the most to, the society of which he/she is already a member. Each child is unique and we value their talents and interests in the manner we believe they deserve.
In order to achieve this, we strive to:
Give our children the skills of communication - listening, speaking, reading, writing and the ability to understand and use concepts through the curriculum subjects.
Enable the habit of learning as opposed to being taught
Enable children to develop a happy way of being together
To help children to use their leisure time constructively
