Dear parents and carers,
At Elstow, we believe that all our children are entitled to the very best teaching and learning. We develop a love of learning through an academic knowledge-based curriculum. We inspire children to be curious, introduce them to academic disciplines, be resilient, and to persevere to succeed.
The academic achievement of our pupils is of paramount importance for us.
As part of our commitment to academic subjects, we also focus strongly on music, including with public performances. This includes concerts in the magnificent Elstow Abbey Church as well as in school for harvest, Christmas, Sing into Spring and in summer. In Physical Education, we ensure all children run a Daily Mile to help them gain stamina and confidence, and we actively engage in a full range of competitions with local schools. Further enrichment for all our pupils is through trips to a wide range of venues, including into London.
We are very proud of our pupils and work hard to ensure we create a warm, inclusive atmosphere, where children are comfortable to making mistakes, where they try their best and where we ensure they learn how to behave in school and in society. We make sure they know that they are part of ‘Team Elstow’. Every morning, the whole school stands together for a greeting where I remind them, how our values guide us, and how we ‘work hard and be nice’ to enrich the lives of each other, our community and to enrich all of our futures
We have a well-established and dynamic teaching team, who value communication and links with families; we have strong pastoral support including with the SENCO and the Family Support Worker on site. The leadership team are on the school gates every morning and evening to greet and talk about successes and deal with worries from parents, carers and pupils.
I hope you find the information on the website helpful and look forward to welcoming you and your child to Elstow.
