A very warm welcome to Saint Edmund's Catholic Primary School

Our Catholic Primary School is situated in the town of Calne, in the County of Wiltshire in South West England. It was built in 1971 to serve the local population of the town and surrounding villages, and the nearby Royal Air Force Station at Lyneham.

We are very proud of our school, which is a loving and welcoming community that provides a nurturing and healthy environment for all. As a Catholic school, we welcome children of all faiths and beliefs who are ready to embrace our mission statement and values. We aim to educate the whole child and help our pupils to be kind and responsible members of the community.

We are closely linked to our community through our parents and by our relationship with Saint Edmund’s Parish Church on Oxford Road in Calne.

Mission Statement

The Catholic faith is central to the whole life of our school and all aspects of the curriculum. In following Christ and his teachings, we aspire to excellence in every area of school life.

Our school is committed to the development of the whole child and sees this wholeness in terms of Christ, the Perfect Man. The Gospel values are our model for the values, attitudes and virtues which permeate leadership, learning and relationships within the school.

Within our school all education is seen as a means whereby children move towards a fuller understanding of God, mankind, and the world around us, thus becoming children who talk and pray consciously with God and accept the responsibility to love and serve others.

Our school sees its task as the coming together of faith, life and culture.

Our school is a community in which children are helped to live first and foremost as children, enjoying the experience of childhood and not just as preparation for life as future adults. From the outset we recognise and respect the value, dignity and individuality of each child.

As a school we are committed to working alongside parents as partners in children’s education, recognising that parents are the first and foremost educators of their children.

In our school children are expected to be themselves, to live in harmony with other children and adults, to learn from and respect the school environment, to enjoy the present, get ready for the future, to create and to love, to face adversity, to behave responsibly, in other words, to be fully human.
