Elm Wood Primary School

News

A huge well done to all pupils, staff and parents. We have had a HSE (Health and Safety Executive) audit to check on the school's procedures during the Covid19 pandemic. We are pleased to inform you all that school passed and are fully Covid compliant.

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."

Please look at our gallery to see some of the other fantastic recent events, Oakleys first birthday party, school trips and photos of the children working hard in class.

    Following the televised announcement by The Prime Minister on Monday 4th January 2021 that the country is to move into a National Lockdown (Tier 5).  

    In accordance with the statutory requirements I must with great regret notify you of the closure of Elm Wood Primary School.  The details so far available only permit attendance of Key Worker and Vulnerable children.  This will of course be accommodated.  The school will be open from Wednesday 6th January onwards for the children of Key Workers and vulnerable children only.  Unfortunately there will be no after school club at this time.

    I know this comes at very late notice and  I can only assure you all that I will reopen the school at the earliest opportunity.

    All children will be set work remotely by their class teachers on a daily basis and it is vital this work is completed.

    I will continue to be in close communication with you.
