Welcome to Edmund de Moundeford Primary School.
A Good School, OFSTED 2013 and 2017.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.
For those parents who are considering sending your child(ren) to our school we appreciate that choosing the right school for your child is always a difficult decision and we hope that our website will help you to make the right decision. However, we are also very happy to show you around our school, if you would like to make an appointment, or we can answer any questions on the phone.
For those parents who are already with us we hope that this website will provide you with everything that you need to know, from weekly newsletters to class letters, policies and diary dates.
Ethos and values
Edmund de Moundeford Primary School is proud that we help each individual child to be the best that they can be. We want all our children to be:
· well motivated
· polite and well behaved with a sense of right and wrong
· able to work and play on their own or cooperatively
· learners who try their best and enjoy achieving highly in many different skills
We value the partnership that we have with parents and strongly encourage mums, dads and carers to take an active role in our school. We have a supportive Parent Teacher Association which works tirelessly for the benefit of the pupils.
Our curriculum is fun, exciting and relevant to prepare children for the type of skills that they might need in tomorrow’s future. We even teach Philosophy to extend the children's language and thinking skills.
We are equally delighted with the many other achievements that reflect the rich and varied provision we are able to offer at our school. We are particularly dedicated to sporting achievements. We have gained netball, hockey, cross country, athletics and football trophies and our school won the National Key Stage 2 general knowledge finals, which over 1000 schools entered.
We offer a wide variety of after school clubs, most of which are free. These constantly change and have included multisports, computing, philosophy, lego, netball, cheerleading, archery, computing and gifted reading.
We offer a wide range of facilities including an extensive field, our own indoor swimming pool and a Learning Resources Centre, complete with sixteen computers. The Trust also donated our outdoor classrooms, which are spacious covered garden areas attached to the three Key Stage One classrooms.
The senior management team consists of myself, Mrs Sarah Disney, my deputy headteacher, and Mrs Lesley Ward, the school business manager.
Paper copies of information given on this website are available upon request.
We hope that you like our school. Feedback is always appreciated.
Mrs J. Lillycrop
