Our intention is that when students leave St Edward’s Academy, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society and become global citizens.
Our aim is to provide students with a knowledge of their world, locally, nationally and globally and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up within this ever changing world .
We aim to provide our students with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.
We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their minds to it. Students will learn how to navigate through the changes in their surroundings, their emotions and their physical selves.
We will have open and honest conversations, allowing us to learn from each other’s differences and similarities. We break through misconceptions and understand the importance of the various aspects that make up our community. We will see links between every subject and stage in our education.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“… pay attention to what I say… keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
The wisdom literature in the bible pleads with its readers to follow the path of wisdom that will bring health and growth. The ‘heart’ in the Bible stands for the inner part or control centre of the person.
We want all our students at St Edward’s Academy to have the space and security to explore their changing personal, social and physical dimensions and provide then with the information and tools to flourish.
