It is not our intention to cancel all school trips or onsite activities next week, we will only do this if instructed to do so. We will follow all recommended advice and guidance to remain hydrated and as cool as possible.
We would also ask that all parents and carers follow the guidance from Public Health. Please ensure your child wears loose fitting cotton or breathable clothing, the school PE would be an option as it made from a breathable fabric. Your child is still representing the school and so must dress appropriately.
Also, please ensure your child brings in a bottle to fill up with water throughout the day. We would also encourage pupils to wear a sun hat and would ask you to ensure your child has applied sun cream and brings some with them to reapply throughout the day.
School Trips: If the venue for external school trips close or cancel, then we will inform parents and pupils and would anticipate rescheduling the date.

This year, during the first three weeks of the school holidays, three of our students: Ceera Cunningham, Amy Uden and Faye Sheaff are all volunteering in the Pegasus scheme. Pegasus is a volunteering programme offering activities for children with disabilities and severe learning difficulties. Each child supported by the scheme is partnered with an able-bodied teenager who looks after them and helps them to participate and enjoy the activities throughout the three weeks. This will be both a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn how to care and support others as well as meeting new people and gaining an insight into the caring profession. We are proud of our girls for their generosity and their St Edmund’s spirit.
Pegasus is a charity and always appreciate support and donations.
Your donation is always appreciated

A very loving and emotional homecoming, Mr Graves wasn’t the only wiping away tears, he got to us all! The atmosphere was incredible, a real family and solid community. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported Mr Graves in raising funds for his nephew, Miles, who is being treated for osteosarcoma.
The total amount raised by Friday was a staggering £25,181.00. This will go towards funding future treatment and prosthetics for Miles.
Mr Graves said “ it was lovely to come home to St Edmund’s, a completely overwhelming feeling. Mentally and physically challenging, but nothing compared to the gruelling treatment Miles must endure. I’m truly thankful for all the support, donations and the overwhelming home coming, it was a real team effort!”

Last week, Sarah Philpott and her lifeguard dog Bonnie came to St Ed's to give an inspirational talk to our students. Sarah talked about the pressures of exams, failures and the key to success, teamwork and trust. This was particularly good as our Year 11 students and just about to embark on their exams.
Sarah has set herself a challenge to swim the north channel in September this year, donations for her next swim can be made here: https://www.pledgesports.org/projects/north-channel-solo-swim/
You can follow Sarah @instagram/swim_sarah_swimm
A big thank you Sarah!
