Elm Wood Primary School

News

On the 25th June 2018 we had our Ofsted inspection and are extremely pleased to announce that we remain a GOOD school. 

The inspector wrote:

 "It is very evident that pupils enjoy coming to school."

"The school's mentoring programme lies at the very heart of the caring ethos of the school."

"Staff have created a culture in which pupils feel safe."

We have also received our Green Flag Award - thank you to all our children, especially our ECO Club, for helping to keep our school free from litter and helping to save energy! The Eco Club have raised money by organising a Fair Trade Coffee morning. They have also taken part in the Big Bird Watch and improved the school grounds for wildlife and us by planting and litter picking, They have taken part in Switch Off Fortnight and Park and Stride - well done to everyone who has helped! 

This summer term we have also received our Healthy Schools Award - a big thank you goes to parents for supporting us in this by not sending in sweets with your children for birthdays etc.

We are also delighted to have received our Basic Skills Quality Mark Award. This award lasts for 3 years. The Primary Quality Mark provides a framework for self-evaluation and continuous improvement of the basic skills all pupils in a school. This includes both those who under achieve and those whose attainment is lower than would be expected of someone of their age. 

The Assessor reported that:

"Teaching is enhanced by the high quality of the learning environments. Classrooms are very well equipped and abounding with support for reading, writing and mathematics."

    We encourage partnership working with our parents and carers and ask if there is anything we can help you with, or if there is anything you think might be preventing your child attending school, please do not hesitate to speak to their class teacher or Mrs Butterworth.

  • Bug Club

    Published 23/03/20

    Elm Wood subscribes to Bug Club. This a brilliant reading scheme in which teachers allocate lots of lovely books which are suitable for your child's reading level.  There are also lots of fun puzzles and challenges within each book, to check children's understanding. 

    Providing you have access to the internet, your child will be able to make the most of this resource at home and it will really help to develop their love of reading!  

    Just type Bug Club in the search engine (it may come up as Active Pearson) and use your child's log in details which they have been given in school, to log in.  Should they need them again, please just ask!

    We hope that you will encourage your child to use this site and we are sure that it will help in developing their enjoyment of reading and also boost their reading level!
