Prayers

Life of St Edmund's Prayer

StEdmundimage



Heavenly Father, as we gather in prayer, we ask for the guidance and inspiration of our school patron,
St Edmund, who led a life based on Gospel values and the belief in the power of God.


We, pray that like Edmund, each of us will personally come to believe that,
“I can do all things with the help of God who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
and that together our school community may grow ever closer to you and to one another.


May our school be a place that reaches out to the wider community
and is mindful of the environment around us.


We pray in union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.                                                                     

Amen

Transition (Year 6)

Transition Days

transition1


St Edmund's transition days for Year 6/7 students took place on the 3rd and 4th July 2017

All pupils visited the school on both days and enjoyed a 'taster' of life at St Edmund's.


transition2       Transition4


Students started the day with an Assembly followed by registration where they were introduced to their Tutors.   Students then attended lessons of Maths, Drama, Science, RE, Geography and Art and at the end of each day a special Celebration Assembly took place.  




     Transition7


The theme for our Transition days was 'The BFG'.

        


Having a theme to our transition days enables all our new students to feel at ease with a sense of fun in addition to their learning experience with our St Edmund's family.

Transition5         Transition6


For 2017-2018 our induction days will be on the 2nd and 3rd July 2018 and invitation letters will be sent out nearer the time.


Evaluation

Evaluation showed that the majority of students 'really enjoyed' the experience and 98% liked their tutor group. 

By a majority the favourite activity was Art.  Science, Geography, Teambuilding, History, PE and the tour were also popular choices.

Some of the student comments:

"I liked everything".
   
"St Edmund's is perfect". 

"Didn't dislike anything as this place is the best".

"Wanted another day".


New Parents Evening

On the evening of the 2nd and 3rd July 2017 parents/carers are invited into the school to hear a short formal address by the Head, followed by an opportunity to meet the Tutor, complete appropriate forms and purchase school uniform.


Transition Meetings

New Parent transition meetings are also held with a personalised appointment with either the Headteacher, Senior Management Team and Heads of Learning so parents/carers and the new student can be reassured and an opportunity to answer any questions/concerns they may have to enable a smooth transition into our school in September.

letters will be sent confirming the appointment date/time to meet with a member of our staff for the September 2018 intake early in 2018.
