About our school

St Aidan’s VC Primary School is in a socially mixed and vibrant area between Finsbury Park and Crouch End in north London. The school site is small but we make the most of the facilities we have and take advantage of those in the local area. Read more…

Admissions and transfers

At St. Aidan’s, we are committed to providing high quality education to children in our neighbourhood. Some will have special educational needs (SEN) or a disability. The arrangements for admitting these children are the same as for all others. Read more…

Attendance and punctuality

Ideally, children should be in school, on time, 100% of the time. We attach great importance to making a prompt start to the day so children should arrive punctually at 8.50 am (9.00 am for the Nursery) every day. Lateness and absence affect all children’s learning, not just those directly involved. Read more…

Christian links

St. Aidan’s is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England primary school. Voluntary Controlled schools are maintained and run by the local authority. They generally have a religious foundation which appoints some of the Governing Body. The local authority employs staff and controls admissions and curriculum; the school’s land and buildings are generally owned by the authority.

Code of conduct

Good behaviour is important at St Aidan’s – and parents and carers have an important part to play. A happy school is one where children are confident and respect the rights of others. They must be able to work and play safely, and we expect them to follow our behaviour policy and golden rules.  Read more…

Ethos and values

Our approach is based on strong Christian principles – we warmly welcome children from all faiths, as well as those from non-faith backgrounds. We are guided by a set of published values. Read more…

Health and welfare

If a child becomes unwell or has an accident in school, he or she will be seen by one of our first-aiders. The parents or carers will be contacted immediately if the child has been involved in a serious accident or is too ill to remain in school. Read more…

History

During the 19th century, very few children went to school so the Church of England created schools in huge numbers to offer a basic education to the poor. In 1887, the Church opened a secondary school for girls on Church land – our school’s current site. The school was built by the Church Schools’ Company and within a few years became known as Saint Aidan’s. Read more…

Inclusion

St Aidan’s prides itself on being a school that embraces difference and we welcome children with Special Educational Needs. We believe that all children, including those with special educational needs or disabilities, have a right to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum and a right to be included in all aspects of school life.
