Our School

St Edward’s is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School, administered by Rochdale Education Authority for children between the ages of 4 to 11.  We are affiliated to St Martin’s Church in Castleton.

As a Church of England  school, the children are expected to attend daily worship assemblies and every half term we walk to the church for various services. Our local Vicar - Sister Frances, leads a Key Stage assembly weekly.

It is a single storey, open plan building. It has a dining hall and a separate hall for gatherings, assemblies and P.E.  

It also has a well resourced  library and a computer suite. In addition each classroom has a desktop computer and an interactive whiteboard so that ICT can be integrated across the whole curriculum. To embrace new technology, we have a number of iPads and tablets, a computer suite with 25 computers which includes some Apple Mac computers.

The school has separate playgrounds for Key Stage One (KS1) and Key Stage Two (KS2). The school also has a large playing field that is used regularly. In Key Stage 2 we also have a new Trim Trail, partly funded by the Friend sof St Edward's.

We have extensive grounds which we use for our outdoor learning, this includes an outdoor classroom and a woodland area for our Forest School activities. We have an allotment area and new poly tunnel where the children design, plant and grow various fruit and vegetables.These areas are used as a cross-curricular educational resource. 

We have embedded sustainability into our curriculum and as a result of all our environmental work within the school and the community, we have held our 'Green Flag' since June 2000.  In 2013 we were one of the first schools in the country to achieve Ambassador Green Flag status. Our next gren flag is due June 2022.

We  work closely alongside other schools in the nearby area sharing our expertise with children and staff.
