Welcome to

Elmsett C of E Primary School.

Elmsett Vision and Values Statement

In the light of Jesus, we learn to shine

The light of Jesus inspires us to use our gifts with integrity so that we can shine and flourish together, living 'life in its fullness' (John 10:10). We encourage, nurture and respect each other as we grow in our learning and our living.


Jesus reminds us in Matthews's gospel that we are lights for the world. As we seek to follow him, we can share his light with others and change the world!


'You are the light of the world...let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds. (Matthew 5:16)


At Elmsett C of E Primary School we believe that:

  • Every child and adult can shine for the benefit of all.
  • We all have unique talents, which we nurture to become the very best person that God intended us to be.
  • Our children will recognise the value of their own light; be proud of their personal achievements; value and respect themselves and those around them.
  • Our children know how loved they are both by God and others.
  • With encouragement our children will aspire to great things, grow their energy and resilience and take risks with their learning.
  • Our children take a sense of pride and care for the world God created, living a healthy sustainable lifestyle.
  • Our children will let their light shine throughout their lives, making a difference in their classrooms, throughout the school and in the wider world.

Here at Elmsett, Worship and Religious Education are the foundations upon which our school ethos is built.  As part of this a collective act of worship is held each day and is led by the staff, children and visitors.

Each class takes collective worship during term to celebrate their achievements during the term and share their learning with the rest of the school.

We have strong links with St Peter’s C of E Church and The Methodist Church in the village. We regularly welcome the local Reverend and Liz Cope (Outreach Worker for the Methodist church) into school to share collective worship and special events.

The Suffolk Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education forms the basis of the Religious Education policy for the school.

Please see the Collective Worship Plan for more details.


Collective Worship Certificates

Each week we celebrate achievement by giving certificates for our Christian Values, Learning Powers and Star of the Week.

All of the children contributed towards making a cross for our school. 

Everyone decorated a lollypop stick in their own style and we stuck them all together to make our very own holly cross.

Please come and see it in our lobby area.

We are very proud of the fact that we all made the cross together.
