Welcome to our school's website

Welcome to the Elm Hall Primary School website. Elm Hall Primary School is a one-form entry primary school catering for children from 4 – 11 years old where we strive to provide a warm, accepting culture and climate in which the children can fulfill their full potential. We are very proud of the vibrant learning culture that we have within the classrooms and feel privileged to be teaching children with such strong learning attitudes.

We believe strongly in teaching an enjoyable, creative curriculum that sets high expectations, engages all and facilitates strong academic and social progress. This allows children to grapple with new concepts, develop as individuals, work co-operatively and instill a caring attitude that they can carry forward with them for their exciting futures. From the moment children enter the school, we encourage a growth mind-set perspective where we promote all learners to take on challenges, take risks and learn from mistakes. We also believe in working in partnership with parents to achieve the best possible outcomes for all.

The website has been designed to offer an insight into what makes our school a nurturing place to grow and learn. For parents, there is information on the school community, our curriculum and links to helpful websites to support your child’s education. However, if you have any queries that are not fully answered on the website, please do not hesitate to phone and ask.

The website is also designed to assist in your decision in deciding whether Elm Hall is the perfect choice for your child. If that is the case, we look forward to arranging an opportunity to meet you and show you around our school.

At Elm Hall, we are very proud of our learning community and the opportunities we provide for each child, and as Head Teacher, I feel enormous pride leading such a dynamic and hardworking school. I look forward to working in partnership with you as we support your children to become the very best they can be.

    Join the Elm Hall Challenge
    Please watch the attached video with your child/ren. We are trying to start a community challenge and hope as a family you will join in the fun. This activity encourages people to get creative, create conversation, exercise together and allows everyone to be involved in the challenge. We understand that many people feel a little fed up, no longer wanting to leave the house and even feel lonely therefore we hope this challenge can make us or someone we know feel a little brighter.

    School Uniform
    Good Morning We are aware that some parents have been querying School Uniform for September. Currently due to the risk assessment it is required that children wear non school uniform and clean clothes each day. We do not know whether this will be the case for September but will let you know as soon as we can. Due to this please do not buy excessive amounts of uniform as the expectations will be relaxed in September. Regards
