Welcome to our website; St Edmund Campion Catholic Primary is a very popular school located in the west of Maidenhead, situated on the same site as St Edmund Campion Catholic Church. Our most recent RE inspection stated that ‘St Edmund Campion is an outstanding example of a Catholic community. It is truly faith-centred, where the spirit of the Gospel permeates all aspects of school life.
We are very busy fund raising for Solar Panels, so far we have raised £8023.
“There are more hours of light today than any other day of the year – let’s make sure that next year we’ve got panels to grab it!”.
The website address is http://www.solarschools.org.uk/stedmundcampion.org.uk where you can donate from £5 for a virtual solar tile. We are hoping to raise almost £15,000. It would be great if every family could donate at least £5. If you own a business and would like to donate £100 we can add a link from our website to yours. Please be aware that when you donate online, the donation will go through a bank transfer / one off direct debit payment rather than a card through a company called ‘gocardless’.
We have been graded as ‘Outstanding’ in our recent Diocesan Monitoring visit in attainment and progress in religious education. For the full report please go the Our School section of the website.
We are proud of our Outstanding grade from Ofsted (September 2009) and you can read our inspection report under Our School, Ofsted Report.
We aspire to academic excellence and our results are always well above the national average but we are concerned about educating the whole child too. To this end we run many after-school sports’ clubs e.g. football, netball, tag rugby, badminton, multi-sports, cricket, rounders and tennis. We enter all local school tournaments and are often very successful, achieving first place which sometimes leads to representing Maidenhead at county level.
Music is also very important to us. We take part in Wider Opportunities Music so Y4 receive instrumental training with specialist teachers e.g. violin, and cello. Our school choir take part in joint performances with other schools. An activity of which we are particularly proud is our annual production at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, where all our KS2 pupils perform in a musical which has the environment at the heart of its message. We are very aware of our role as stewards of God’s creation.
St Edmund Campion is awarded the status of Global Learning Expert Centre
St Edmund Campion has been awarded the status of Global Learning Expert Centre. The Global Learning Programme (GLP) is an exciting national initiative funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and delivered by a number of partners including the Institute of Education, The Royal Geographical Society, The Geographical Association and Oxfam. Over the next five years, the programme will receive considerable financial investment to support work in Key Stages 2 and 3.
St Edmund Campion will act as a hub offering high quality training related to Global Learning through a partnership network of neighbouring schools. The concept of Global Learning will permeate all areas of the curriculum and will equip children to understand their role and succeed in a globalised world. In addition to the acquisition of global values such as “Fairness”, “Respect” and “Social Justice” and increased knowledge of global themes like “Poverty” and “Inequality”, pupils will develop excellent global learning skills which support their literacy, numeracy and communication.
