We all work hard to make it a place where everyone can thrive. A place where all learners feel safe to take risks, where the process of learning is celebrated as much as the outcome and where everyone is valued for their contributions. At King Edwin we believe that ‘all children can!’ There is no limit or ceiling to what we can achieve. Our children develop skills in communication, problem solving, collaboration, negotiation and as practitioners we learn from them through research and observation in a mutually beneficial relationship. We instill a love for learning and enable children to be competent at applying the skills of learning to new areas they encounter. We provide purposeful, memorable and happy experiences that will last a life time…the way it should be at Primary School.
