Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to our school website.
It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Elmbridge Primary School. We became an all-through primary school, on 1st April 2016, combining the previously separate infant and junior schools. Elmbridge benefits from a long tradition of excellence which we will continue to develop, and I am very confident that your child will be able to take advantage of the many and varied activities which are part of the school’s life. In March 2018, OFSTED graded us ‘good’ in all areas, stating that ‘pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain’ and that ‘classrooms are a hive of discussion and thinking’.
We hope that it gives you a flavour of Elmbridge Primary School but there is nothing like visiting the school in person to discover what a very special place it is.
Elmbridge Primary School believes that it is important to create a safe, caring and stimulating environment where the children are encouraged to have caring and respectful attitudes towards each another. We also firmly believe that we need to nurture the whole child’s development so that they become responsible citizens of the future. Although we are a very large primary school split over two sites, we strive to have a ‘family feel’ and real sense of community with our children and families. OFSTED noted that pupils ‘treat each other with respect and interact together well’ (March 2018). As a school, we know it is vital that each child feels valued and that diversity is celebrated. We believe that building self-esteem and confidence, equipping pupils with knowledge and skills to learn, working together as a team and involving all stakeholders (parents, governors, pupils and staff) will together ensure a continuous improvement in high standards of teaching and learning.
After browsing the website, I do hope you will arrange a visit – you will receive a very warm welcome.
