Welcome to St Edward’s Church of England Academy.
We hope you and your families are keeping well and we look forward to meeting your child once they start at the Academy.
We will put information, on this page, relating to the move to St Edward's C of E Academy in September 2021. Due to the current situation, we are having to do things differently however we are working very closely with the First Schools/Primary Schools that you are transferring from to ensure the transition process is as smooth as possible.
To get in touch please use the contact form on our website to email any queries you may have, and we will be happy to help you.

WELCOME TO THE PASTORAL TEAM
House Leader Elgar – Mrs Mountford
Welcome to St Edward's Academy. As the House Leader for Elgar I am looking forward to getting to know you all and helping you to settle into your new environment. I know it can feel daunting starting a new school but please don't worry, we are here to help and support each and every pupil.
As a parent myself, I understand the anxieties which may be faced when your child is starting their new school. I can assure you that we will do our best to make your child's transition and experience at St Edward's Academy pleasant and fulfilling.
House Leader Newton – Mrs Matthews
Welcome to St Edward's! As the House Leader for Newton, I would like to say how excited we all are to meet you. I know you probably feel a little bit nervous as this year’s transition is very different but please be assured we will do everything we can to help you feel settled and make new friends.
House Leader Nightingale – Mrs Mulroy
Hello and welcome to St Edward's. I am Mrs Mulroy and I am the House Leader for Nightingale. I am very excited about you joining the St Edward's family this year. As this has been a very different year you have not been able to venture around our school to meet us all. Please be rest assured that I will help you to find lots of new friends and support you to settle in.
Welcome to the SEND Team
Below you will find an introduction to some of our Teaching Assistants
I am Mrs Jenkinson, a teaching assistant at St Edward’s Academy. I offer support to pupils with work in the classroom, especially when it seems slightly tricky or if it needs explaining in a different way.
You can find me in my office on the top floor next to one of the computer rooms (208).
Sometimes, pupils come and have a chat with me if they have any concerns or worries. Occasionally, they need somewhere quiet to go so I have a tent and a range of calming activities
I can’t wait to meet you in September and help you carry on your learning journey through St Edward’s.
Hello, my name is Mrs Amson and I have worked at St Edward’s Academy for almost three years. I support children in their lessons and sometimes I work with individual pupils or small groups.
My favourite lesson is maths, but I enjoy supporting pupils in all subjects. We are lucky at St Edward’s because most of our lessons are taught by subject specialists. I also enjoy getting to know the children a little better at Lego Club and Nurture Club, which take place at lunchtimes.
I very much look forward to seeing you in September
Hi there. I’m Mrs Bendall and a teaching assistant at the St Edward’s Academy.
I’ve been here for many years so you might have brothers/sisters/cousins who know me. I am terrible at names so if I’m in your class, you will have to remind me of your name many times until I learn it. If not, I’m sure that I’ll see you in school and will always be happy to help.
Hello everybody. My name is Mrs Bentley and I am one of the teaching assistants here at St Edward’s Academy.
I know starting a new school can be a little scary, but it is also just as exciting. Think of all of your new exercise books ready and waiting for you to fill and hunting websites for that ideal pencil case for your first year in middle school. Whilst you’re here with us, you will have so many new and rewarding opportunities throughout your learning journey.
You will see me around the school and sometimes in your classrooms. I am here to help you and also support the teachers in the classroom, so if you have any questions, please just ask.
See you September!
Hello, my name is Mrs Pettitt and am a teaching assistant here at St Edward’s. I can support you in the classroom if you need help with your work.
You can also come to me if you are worried about anything and I will listen and try to help you with your problems.
I run a lunchtime Nurture club for Year 5 pupils and help with Lego Therapy group sessions. I also work with small groups of pupils who need extra support during form time.
Hello, I am Mrs Pinto and I am one of the Teaching Assistants at St Edward’s Academy. My role within the school is to support pupils within the classroom.
You can also come to me with any concerns or worries that you may have and I will always listen and help you with them. I am extremely good at looking for things and can help you to find your way around the school.
I run a lunchtime ‘Nurture Club’ for Year 5 pupils and help with the Handwriting club. I like to be outdoors and there may be a new lunchtime session focused around gardening/the outdoors. I also work with some small groups of children who need a little extra help.
I really am looking forward to meeting you all in September.
Hello, my name is Miss Filip and I have been with St Edwards's Academy for 3 years now. Reading and learning to speak other languages is something that I love to do. At school, I run a handwriting club, fine motor skills club and I thoroughly enjoy attending the modern languages club. Part of my role involves working with small groups of pupils who need extra help with their learning.
I’m looking forward to meeting you in September. But before that, enjoy the long summer holiday and don't forget to stay safe.
