The Edge Schools’ Federation


Apply sun lotion before school, bring a sun hat to keep your child safe in the sun and a water bottle every day so we can keep hydrated.  

Thank you to our wonderful PTA who have raised funds to replace the parasols so we can seek some shade during our break times 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms in children

Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it's usually less serious.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Are you following us on our social media platforms or missing out? 

A reminder that we can be followed on Twitter and Facebook. There are lots of great photos that showcase some of the things going on in school. Don't forget to turn on your notifications. 

Why not share with your
friends to promote our fantastic school.

We are pleased that the UK looks to be edging closer to normality, but we must stay compliant with the social distancing rules to reach the end goal shortly. Therefore here is a reminder of the times children MUST arrive in class in the morning and be collected in the afternoon so that we ensure everyone can adhere to social distancing. 

Family with children in more than one class  9am /3pm 

Class 3    8:45am / 2:55pm

 Class 2    8:55 am / 3:05pm 

Class1      9:05am / 3:15pm 

This is a reminder to all parents and children about safety in the sun. If the forecast is for good weather it would be most helpful if the children could come to school with sun protection already applied, a sun hat and a water bottle as we will endeavour to utilise the outside as much as possible. 


This is a reminder of our expectations for PE Kit as per our uniform policy 

Plain T-shirt or school polo shirt, plain shorts, trainers or plimsolls. A tracksuit is also useful for
outdoor activities during the winter. 

Many thanks

PE kit to be worn every WED and THUR 

Class 1 has been finding out about the history of Shrewsbury Castle. We discovered that it was built over 1000 years ago and it has been rebuilt many times since then. 
We're looking forward to the Week beginning 28th June when you can bring in your mini history projects. It will be your turn to tell the rest of the class something about your local history.  

C1 have had a virtual tour of London landmarks. They enjoyed popping into ‘the posh hotel’ aka The Savoy Hotel as part of their literacy lesson. They have also been investigating animal prints in art.





First of all, we would like to give a very warm welcome to Fabian and his family, who have just moved to the Church Preen area. Fabian joins our other year 4’s Alice, Laura, Annie, Connor and Jack.

Class Two have had an enjoyable week tasting Sicilian inspired food which included Prosciutto Crudo, Bruschetta & olives, Pizza, Mozzarella & Tomato salad and not forgetting the delicious Lemon Granita…all perfect for the lovely hot weather we have had. This really helped the children to gather ideas for their persuasive writing!

Class 2 pupils were lucky to have a break in the clouds so they were all able to observe the partial solar eclipse on Thursday morning. Thank you to Concord College for the eclipse glasses.

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
Find the help finder here:


Sleep is an important part of everybody's well being 

  • Does your child struggle with their sleep?
  • Would you like to access support to help to improve sleep and bedtime routine?
  • Would you like to meet other parents/carers to share and discuss experiences?

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be used.
