Laudate Si


Our children in St Edward’s are on our journey to becoming a Laudato Si’ school in Scotland.

Laudato Si Schools CHANGE FOR GOOD is an invitation to all schools to respond to the call to be stewards of God’s creation. The Holy Father’s

challenges us to do this in his encyclical, Laudato Si, and his global

compact on education during 2020

“In his letter, Laudato Si’, Pope Francis asks us to love God, look after each other and protect the world. He tells us about the challenges we are facing in our world and asks us to make things better.
“That is why we want to become a Laudato Si’ School, to love God, look after each other and protect the earth.”

“The climate is a common good, belonging to all and meant for all”.

“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?”

St Edward’s Primary will  commit to Laudato Si’, and we look forward to many activities throughout the year to show the vital role schools play in changing the world.

Learning at Home

As we continue to experience life in lockdown amid the trials and tribulations of home schooling as a teacher, pupil or parent, it has been a challenge .However our  teaching staff remain committed to their duties and are daily  uploading tasks and suggested activities onto glow  to ensure children have a focus and are keeping active with their learning.  It has been great to see  how so many of your children are replying to their teachers and uploading pictures to share their experiences.We thank all our parents who are working with their children in a creative and supporting way.

Theses times make it challenging for parents to contact our school directly during the closure of the building.

However if you require any support with your child’s learning at home please contact us :

Mobile:     07903 976504


We will continue to update parents on a regular basis  by text or twitter when we are able to distribute other learning resources such as jotters.
