Edinburgh Primary ~ a community school with a passion for the arts!
Welcome to Edinburgh!
We are a thriving community school based in Queen's Road, Walthamstow. At Edinburgh, we ensure that every child makes the best progress possible academically, socially and emotionally. We also have a firm commitment to the arts so that children are provided with the opportunity to express themselves in a range of ways, increase self-esteem, develop resilience and more importantly find enjoyment from a hobby. We are keen that we commit to a core offer for the arts which includes:
-a school orchestra led by musicians ~ the East London Music Group
-a partnership with the East London Music Group ~ bringing music to the whole school all year
-a school choir led by a vocalist
-a gallery visit each year
-an annual pantomime
-real opportunities to perform to an audience ~ school fayres, class productions and assemblies
-a half termly art competition to complete at home (with prizes!)
-the offer of a wide range of peripatetic music lessons
-the offer of a wide range of clubs for art, dance, drama, choir and orchestra
We have developed our unique and immersive, project-led curriculum (see our curriculum section for more details), which includes weekly PSHE lessons following the 'Jigsaw' project so that pupil well-being is developed systematically. We are also passionate about the environment and the beauty of the natural world. Over the summer, two new gardens have been installed and we can't wait to see how this enriches school life.
We also have a long-standing commitment to physical education - with Salaam Peace teaching high quality PE lessons and providing enriching lunch-time activities each day. In addition to this, we have developed our own netball and football teams and will be taking part in borough sporting events this year.
I hope this website provides you with a good overview of all that we do at Edinburgh Primary; however, to get a real feel for our school, please do come and visit us! Nothing can be better than a walk around, seeing children learning in a range of inspiring ways, in a nurturing environment.
