At St. Edwards we have a commitment to high achievement and we strive to provide all of our children with a quality education appropriate to their individual needs. The school environment nurtures the whole child, giving them the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in a Catholic setting.
We believe at St. Edward’s that Inclusive Education is about what we can do in the best interests of the child by providing an appropriate education within what is reasonably available.
