Edale CE Primary School

Head of School's Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome to Edale Primary School’s website. I hope you find everything you need whilst navigating the site and get a good flavour of what an exciting place Edale is to be.


I am delighted to hold the post of Head of School at Edale. Having ventured down the road from Hope Primary School, where I spent several years as a senior teacher and SENCO, I am so excited to lead the team here at Edale and to ensure that our wonderful children get the best opportunities in such an inspirational environment.


One of the unique things about Edale is that we are a very small school. We currently cater for children in two classes: The Swallow’s Class (consisting of Reception, Year 1, 2 and 3 children) and the Eagle’s class (Year 6 pupils). Our children benefit from working in small groups as well as having dedicated 1:1 time with staff members. This means our children can progress rapidly in their learning and we have personalised planning in place for each and every one of them. We are passionate about embracing the outdoors and have our very own forest schools area (Edale Island) which our Swallows class visit weekly.


The school has recently entered into a formal collaboration with Hope Primary School. This is such an exciting venture: two small primary schools coming together for the benefit of all pupils; utilising the strengths and skills found in both schools and sharing facilities, specialist teaching staff and senior leaders.


If you would like to visit the school then you would be most welcome. Please contact the office where we can arrange an appointment for you to look around and discuss the fabulous opportunities we have to offer.
