and Sporting Opportunities
There is a strong musical tradition at the
school and pupils have the chance to learn a variety of instruments,
some in school and some available from visiting specialists, and
to sing in the choir. All children are given regular opportunities
to perform to an audience by way of class activities, assembly presentations,
school musical productions and seasonal musical events.
There is a wide range of sporting activities, giving children many
opportunities to participate in local inter-school tournaments.
We also offer a large variety of clubs at lunchtime and after school.

The school is well supported by an extremely
active Parent Teacher and Friends Association which organises a
wide range of events, with the emphasis on fun and participation.
Everyone is encouraged to become involved with the PTFA.
We have high expectations for all our children at Edenbridge Primary
We want them to be happy and successful, and we are committed to
giving every individual child a chance to develop their talents,
whatever they may be.
We are determined to help children achieve whether they are academic
high flyers or those in need of a little more support. At the same
time we offer opportunities for everyone to participate, and excel,
in a diverse range of after school activities.
We believe that children should be given the chance to succeed in
a secure and reassuring environment. Our aim is to help the children
become selfconfident and independent individuals who respect themselves,
others and the world in which they live.
We recognise and value the important role that parents play and
see effective education as a partnership between home and school.
We recognise that parents are children’s first and most important
educators, and that the partnership between Home and School is key
to a child’s happiness and success.
We create many opportunities for you to visit the school throughout
the year and actively encourage your full participation in all aspects
of school life.
