At Elstow, we believe that all our children are entitled to the very best of teaching. We develop a love of learning through an academic knowledge-based curriculum. We inspire children to be curious, resilient and to persevere to succeed. The academic achievement of our pupils is of parmount importance to us.

We are very proud of our pupils and work hard to ensure we create a warm, inclusive atmosphere where children are comfortable making mistakes, where they try their best and 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 ensure regular communication and links with families. We have strong pastoral support including a 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.



“We inspire children to be curious, resilient and to persevere to succeed.”
