St Edward’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and wellbeing of its pupils. We make every effort to provide a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment. We seek to maintain a culture of openness where pupils and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to.
A truly whole-school approach ensures that pupils’ learning and development are top priorities for all who care for them. The staff are attuned to the individual needs of the pupils. They are intuitive and nurturing in their approach. Consequently, pupils develop trusting relationships with an experienced and well-established team of staff.Ofsted (2019)
