Principal’s welcome


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.


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.  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 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.


Miss Samantha Baxter

Please see the message on the Parents and Friends page from Bedfordshire Police about Halloween.


Some parents, Mr Ruggiero an Elstow Governor, and I have met today with the Road Safety Office Andrew Prigmore and our local councillor Tim Hill to discuss a way forward to make our school entrance safer.


We know that the number of families all trying to use the pupil gate for drop off and pick up is the main cause of the congestion and frustration and we are currently discussing a number of ways to improve this for us all.


We will report back as soon as we have some concrete solutions
