St Edward's Mission Statement
To love, to serve and learn.
We are a school family journeying together in God's love.
We serve each other to achieve our best.
We learn in fun and creative ways,
respecting everyone's gifts.
Welcome to St Edward's Catholic Primary School. We are a small, family orientated school in Runcorn 'Old Town' and can trace our origins back to the 1840's when the school started in a room above the original St Edward's Church in Windmill Street.
This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
You can also find information on the School App, Facebook and Twitter.
If you would like a paper copy of the information on our school website, please speak to Mrs Dowling in the office who will provide this free of charge.
Equality at St Edward’s
St Edward’s Catholic Primary School welcomes its general duties under the 2010
Equality Act and the 2011 Equality Duty to:
• eliminate discrimination, harassment, and victimisation,
• advance equality of opportunity, and
• foster good relations.
St Edward’s is committed to equality. Therefore:
We do our best to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
We are aware of the Reasonable Adjustment duty for disabled pupils – designed to enhance access and participation to the level of nondisabled pupils and stop disabled children being placed at a disadvantage compared to their non-disabled peers.
We make sure the school is a safe, secure, and stimulating place for everyone.
We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them the same.
We recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.
We take seriously the need to consider the equality implications when we develop, adapt and review any policy or procedure and whenever we make significant decisions about the day today life of the school. We do our best to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking with pupils, parents, and carers, and through our School Council.
The Headteacher ensures that all appointment panels give due regard to this policy so that no one is discriminated against when it comes to employment, promotion or training opportunities.
