ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b
WELCOME TO BEYOND TEDDIES! An evolution is happening …
Their purpose is evolution . Building upon the current strong base of activity they are designing a calendar of events to involve OSE of all age, profession and personal interests, The St Edward’s Society and St Edward’s School have worked harmoniously over many years delivering events, communications and support for OSE and Friends of Teddies . With the addition of Rachael Henshilwood and Emily Rowbotham to an already formidable team of Emma Grounds, John Wiggins and now David Smart as President, ambitions are even greater to do more to help the OSE and parent community benefit from their connection to Teddies.

increasing communications across multiple channels and opening up and facilitating the incredible network of advice and support available across the OSE community for the benefit of all.
This network can help our local North Oxford community too. The School has run an active Community Service Programme for the past five years helping out at local care homes, primary schools and charities. However, we now want to do more by setting up formal partnerships with these organisations where,
This evolved team will now be known as the Beyond Teddies Team , encompassing the very best of old and the vision of new. Importantly it will continue to support our OSE community as it always has done, but with ambition and capability to now do much more.
importantly, our pupils can learn through service for others as well as providing much needed support. The vision is that the skills and expertise found within the extensive Teddies community can now be put to use for the benefit of both Teddies pupils and the Community Service Programme.
‘Everyone has something to contribute to society’ – is one of Teddies key stated priorities. The new Beyond Teddies Team will bring together our whole society; pupils, parents, teachers, OSE, past parents and the North Oxford community within which we sit, and enable everyone to contribute and receive support.
