Welcome to the Upper School at Edale Rise Primary School. We have some amazing topics and learning experiences to engage and inspire all of the children. If you wander through the classrooms, you may find children going back to Anglo Saxon or ancient Greek times, designing and making cereal bars to sell, learning to compost, studying and recreating the work of a famous artist or sculptor or playing the violin, as well as working hard on Reading, Writing and Maths!
It is important to us that the children learn to be responsible and independent as they prepare for Secondary School and beyond. We have high expectations of the children’s behaviour. We encourage a sense of responsibility by asking our older children to work with the younger ones by helping at lunchtimes and during special events, such as Sports Day. We are constantly looking for ways to raise the children’s self-esteem and confidence and we are proud of the fact that so many of our pupils will speak up for things that are important to them.
