Open Evening and School in Action sessions for 2021 admissions
Choosing your child’s primary school is one of the most important decisions you face as parents, and if you are interested in Eden Primary, we want to make sure you have all the information you need. In 2020 this will be managed in line with guidelines for Covid-19 and our school Risk Assessment. Please see below a slideshow which we hope shows you our lovely building and gives a flavour of our school. It shows some of the locations, lessons and activities our children enjoy at school and in the local woods.
Annual Open House
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Zoom event on Wednesday 11th November. If you have further questions about Eden Primary or about the admissions procedures please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately due to our Covid-19 guidelines we were unable to invite prospective parents into our school, but we hope the zoom presentation and was informative and helpful and that you enjoy the slideshow above.
School in Action Sessions:
We usually follow our Open House with school in action sessions where we invite prospective parents to visit us during the school day. Unfortunately, this year we will be unable to invite parents into school in this way, which is a great shame as we really enjoy doing so.
Please let us know if anything is not clear, or if you have further questions about Eden Primary or about any aspect of our admissions procedure. Meanwhile, here are some thoughts from former Eden pupils:
Zach, now at secondary school in Year 7: I was very happy at Eden and it gave me a strong foundation for my future education. I loved the warm and nurturing community of teachers, families and friends. I loved the great extra-curricular activities including piano, chess, netball, football, drama and running. I loved Edenfest, our wonderful annual 2-night camping trip organised by parents every summer. I loved the fun sleepovers in school at the end of Year 2, and in Kent in Year 5 and all the learning activities in our trips to the woods opposite our school. I enjoyed our wonderful art projects and the Jewish learning which gave me a very strong Jewish identity. I spent 7 very happy years at Eden Primary.
Annabel, now at secondary school in Year 7: Eden is a very special community where everyone looks out for each-other and older children really care for younger children. We are all taught to be kind and to help people. Everyone at Eden is available to talk to you if you have any worries or problems. I enjoyed all the school projects where we mixed in our year groups with our teachers. I really liked the fact that we called our teachers by their first names which makes it easy to feel comfortable with them. Eden provided me with a really good Jewish education which was taught very creatively including a whole day in the woods with Passover activities. The art programme at Eden involves so many creative projects which are linked to the work in all our subject areas. This way of working really prepared me for secondary school because it helped me to understand abstract concepts and to think critically. At Eden we were encouraged to discuss ideas and have our own opinions. Being part of the Eden community has given me amazing friends and a great start in my new school.
