Welcome to Edmund de Moundeford Primary School.
A Good School, OFSTED July 2013.
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.
In 2010 we were one of only 7 schools in the whole of Norfolk where all the children achieved level 4 in both English and Maths. We were joint fifth for Average Point scores out of 303 schools. Our results also showed that the children did not start with such high levels but instead made great progress as they went through the school. We also had well above average results in 2011. In 2012 our literacy results showed that 100% of children had made at least the expected progress from Year 2 to Year 6 - a very pleasing and unusual achievement. 2013 results were above average for end of Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 results and show great progress. 2014 results were very pleasing for the younger children and 2015 results were at or above national. 2016 results were again well above national for Reception and Year 2 and we were pleased with our Year 6 Writing results.
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. Recently we have gained netball, hockey, cross country trophies and our school won the National Key Stage 2 general knowledge finals a couple of years ago, which over 1000 schools entered. We offer a variety of after school clubs. These constantly change and have included multisports, 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.

We hope that you like our school. Feedback is always appreciated.
