It is my pleasure to welcome you to our small but thriving primary school which continues to build on the Good rating given by OFSTED in July 2019. We really pride ourselves on our “family feel” and this is often commented on by people visiting the school. Our new parent handbook has been designed to give you a feel for the school and provide you with all of the information you need for the forthcoming academic year. The new year will bring challenges as we hopefully return to a greater sense of normality but we have made preparations to build on our engaging curriculum to really address everyone’s physical, emotional and social wellbeing. We pride ourselves on our wider curriculum offer and a visit to our website and Twitter feed should give you a greater feel for the range of experiences we aim to provide. Our ambition is that every child should reach their full potential and have their talents developed so that they can take their next steps successfully to meet their ambitions and aspirations. High expectations are held by the whole team at Edenthorpe Hall so that we get the best from each and every child in our extended family. Our vision statement and core values are at the heart of everything we do.
We are part of the Astrea Trust – a family of 27 schools across South Yorkshire and Cambridge. This gives us an extended network with whom we work to complement our relationships with the Hungerhill family of schools and the wider Doncaster network through Partners In Learning. Through this work we ensure that every member of staff receives ongoing high quality training based around research through opportunities to share the very best practice, meaning that our children benefit hugely. The Astrea Promise provides our commitment to our families for the whole experience.
I look forward to seeing you all in school again soon so that we can continue to work closely together to ensure our children have the best possible start in their lives, setting them up for a bright future in which anything is possible for them.
