  • We are a UNICEF Rights Aware School

    We have achieved the Gold Award for the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award. 

    Since September 2021, we have been working alongside UNICEF to become a Rights Respecting School. The first stage is achieving bronze, which we achieved in November 2021 and in July 2022 we achieved the Silver Award: Rights Aware. 

    Silver: Rights Aware, is the second stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award. It is granted by UNICEF UK to schools that show good progress towards embedding children’s rights in the school’s policy, practice and ethos, as outlined in the RRSA Strands and Outcomes. This ties in with the work we are doing on equality, inclusion, diversity and de-colonising our curriculum. 

    We have now successfully achieved the 3rd stage of the Rights Respecting School Award and we are officially GOLD.

  • Home Learning and Admissions

    Home Learning

    If your child should ever need to work from home for an extended period of time, then all our teachers are fully prepared to support your child at home with home learning. We use Tapestry or Google Classrooms and your child will be supported with Zooming into live sessions where they will receive immediate feedback and any misconceptions are addressed. Any child struggling to access these sessions can contact school to ask about receiving a device to support them at home. Pastoral Teams and our SENDCOs will also phone children and families to check to see how they are getting on and to support them with any issues that arise. You can access more home learning links on our website page here. Our teachers are regularly blogging all the updates that they receive from families too. To see some of the great work our children are completing, you can visit any class blog. Go to our Curriculum page and scroll down to access every year group here. You can see our Home School Agreement here and read about our Remote Learning Policy here too. 

    Early Years Admissions

    The Sheffield School Admissions Team will announce your child’s allocated school sometime in April 2022. This will be done by email or in the post. I sincerely hope that every child is allocated their first preference. Whether you already attend Prince Edward Nursery or will be joining us as a new family, we are looking forward to welcoming you in September. You can contact us using the school’s email address should you have any questions regarding your child starting school. We are also embarking on offering 30 hours free places to any family that is entitled. Amy Parker is our Early Years Leader and can support you through the process. She has written to all our families to talk about the ways we keep in touch usually and how we intend to keep in touch this summer.

  • Our Most Recent Ofsted Report

    We had our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2024. We were, and still remain Good. The report talks about the strengths of the school and identifies some things we can still work on. You can read it here. You can also find it in the School Policies and Reports section of our website. The report says:

    • Pupils live and breathe the school’s nine values which include respect, determination and
      kindness.
    • In lessons pupils are focused and attentive.
    • Pupils have very positive attitudes to their learning and they move around school calmly.
    • Strong and positive relationships form the bedrock of pupils’ experience at school.
    • Teachers’ secure subject knowledge means that pupils experience interesting and well-structured lessons.
  • Our School Values

    The school values were developed in 2013 by staff, governors, children and parents. The nine values are:

    • Respect
    • Co-operation
    • Pride
    • Determination
    • Honesty
    • Perseverance
    • Kindness
    • Fairness
    • Aspiration

  • A Message from the School Council

    We are helpful, kind and friendly. At our school we have raised lots of money for Children in Need. We helped raise money for countries like Haiti. We don’t just think about children in our school, we think about children around the world.

    We share our ideas with our class to tell them what is happening in school.

    We welcome anybody new to our school so they feel happy inside. We try our best to make sure that everyone fits in, everyone has friends and everyone is safe.
