Governors and staff at Our Lady & St Edwards Catholic Primary & Nursery School value each child as a unique individual made in the image and likeness of God with a range of individual gifts and talents. Therefore, we aim to provide every child with access to a broad and balanced education. This includes the National Curriculum in line with the S​pecial Educational Needs Code of Practice. ​
