Our vision

Our Vision:

Elstow School aims to become a centre of educational and personal excellence for students between Reception and year 6, playing a key role at the heart of the community it serves.

We have created a culture in which the highest expectations and aspirations surround all of our students, delivering on the rightful demand from parents in Elstow and surrounds for an excellent education opportunity for their children.

Our School has a positive, ‘can-do’ culture built around…

  • Aspirationthe belief that everyone can achieve something great – and does their best
  • Respectcaring for the feelings, wishes or rights of others & yourself
  • Honestybeing truthful, genuine, open and trustworthy

What makes us different

“Go the extra mile”

Fundamentally underpinning everything the school does, we believe that every child, given the right circumstances, can achieve incredible things – and that to achieve this requires all of us – students, parents, Governors, team members – to go the extra mile to make this happen.

“Small school, big curriculum, infinite possibilities”

We believe that our innovative structure enables us to benefit from being deliberately small – so that every child can be truly known and supported – yet offer the big curriculum that they have the right to experience.

Culture of high expectations

We believe that provided with the right support, every child is capable of academic and personal success. Everyone in our school community will work to our culture of positive behaviour and high expectations and will be supported to attain these.

A focus on numeracy and literacy…

We believe some students struggle because they have never mastered the basics, and that the answer to this is to ensure that every child has these. As a result we are dedicating extra time and resources to numeracy and literacy.

An education in the widest sense

We offer an education that is not only academically demanding but seeks to enrich students’ lives.

What are we looking for

Our staff will:

  • Share and uphold our values of aspiration, respect and honesty
  • Believe every student is capable of the highest level of academic and personal success
  • Go the extra mile for our students and their families
  • Have the ability to inspire students to ensure they achieve the best possible individual outcomes within an aspirational environment
  • Demonstrate a commitment and desire to continually improve

What do we offer?

We are committed to supporting our staff to continually develop their practice. We invest significantly in a number of professional development programmes.
