Our Academy

In these unprecedented times of uncertainty as a pandemic prevails across our world let us ask for the protection of Our Loving Father:

Prayer for Protection

God our Loving Father, You are always present.

Come to the help of your people who are so precious to you.

Be our shelter in this time of uncertainty and strengthen the bonds of our communities.

Have mercy on us and protect us at this time as the Coronavirus threatens health and life.

Watch over those who are suffering and give strength to those who are helping the sick.

We ask this of you in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Our Lady, Health of the Sick…pray for us.


Our school is a vibrant learning community where pupils, families, staff and governors work in close partnership.

We believe that every individual is unique and made in God’s own image. We aim to instil and foster a life long love of learning for every child in a happy and caring environment that bears witness to our Gospel values. We create opportunities to develop independence, confidence and collaboration, recognising that everyone has their own unique talents which we work with you to develop.

We believe that a close partnership between parents and school is the key to success and we are here to work with you to ensure the very best possible experience for your child.

Our Mission Statement

‘True Mind, True Heart, True Spirit’

encapsulates our caring ethos and emphasises that Christ is at the very centre of our school community. We accept the trust the parents and carers have placed in putting  their children into our care, as a privilege.  Therefore, everything we do at school is aimed at developing each child to his or her full spiritual, academic and social  potential.  

Our statement on British Values and supporting policy can be read below. 

At St Edward’s Catholic Academy fundamental British values are promoted and embedded into all parts of school life.  Our Mission Statement, ‘True Mind, True Heart, True Spirit' and our policies including our RE and PSHE policies, reflect these values, ensuring that all members of our school understand the importance of them and how they are essential to enable us to operate as a community in the wider context of modern Britain.
