“Outstanding outcomes and quality of provision and highly effective use of available resources provide excellent value for money”. Ofsted November 2011
“St Edmund’s Children’s Centre is at the heart of its community and is extremely successful, providing an outstanding quality of service for all its children and families. The centre is exceptionally well led, with outstanding teamwork leading to excellent provision for families. Responsibilities are distributed across the staff team, which ensures that each member of staff plays an important part in the children’s centre and its delivery of a range of excellent services. Many of the staff are former centre users, volunteers or students and they provide excellent role models for their community. Their enthusiasm, professionalism, commitment and dedication to raising standards are exemplary”.

“This school continues to provide an outstanding education for children. `The St Edmund’s experience is something very special’, and `My children love it and so do I’ are comments that typify the overwhelmingly positive views of parents and carers. By working closely together as a highly effective staff team, since the previous inspection, the school has gone from strength to strength, building successfully on its track record of outstanding achievement. Improvements in children’s attendance, to the outstanding quality of teaching, enhancement of the excellent curriculum, along with even stronger partnerships fostered with a growing number of parents and carers, are just a few examples of the many recent successes. Apart from children’s attainment and their attendance both of which are above average, all aspects of the school’s work are outstanding”.
