Growth with Progress
Welcome to the Elmsett Church of England VC Primary School website where you will get a glimpse of our happy and exciting village school.
We are a small school with only 4 classes, but with big ambitions and achievements.
Being a rural school that serves both the local community and surrounding villages, we draw upon our beautiful environment and try to utilise all the resources available to extend and enrich learning. We have a school allotment frequented by the children to learn how to grow, nurture, harvest (and finally cook) vegetables. Buckle's Wood is on our doorstep for outdoor learning and creating wonderful things such as a Minibeast Hotel.
We also have international connections and are twinned with a school in New Jeshwang, Gambia. The children correspond frequently via letters and powerpoint presentations, sharing their experiences and learning about the differences between the cultures.
We are proud to be an Eco-School and the pupils are actively involved in recycling and other activities both independently and through their own Eco-Council to create a sustainable environment.
The school is a Church of England school with Christian values where the moral and spiritual development of each person is very important. The school has developed Christian values within its school community by enabling pupils to experience worship in church within the Anglican tradition, Methodist tradition and by fostering close and regular links with local clergy and diocese.
We aim to provide a caring, family atmosphere where pupils (age 4 to 11) can learn to grow and work independently with confidence, interest, enthusiasm and self-discipline, whilst maintaining an awareness of and respect for others. We welcome parents into school to help with reading and cooking, or to share experiences that may be valuable to the children. Please contact Sarah in the office, or speak to a class teacher if you would like to be involved.
Please have a look round the website where you see more of what Elmsett School has to offer.
