A very warm welcome to Ecclesall Primary School. I am Emma Hardy, the Head Teacher of our three form entry community primary school.

This is a very exciting time for all our children, staff, parents, governors and local community. We have had a very busy time recently getting everything ready for opening school to our children this September 2018. We have lots of new classrooms, a new computing suite, a studio and class kitchen, an Atrium for a new library area, a larger dining room and kitchen, small year group rooms as an extension of the classrooms, a MUGA (Multi use games area), new turf to our school field and an additional playground for our younger children.

Ecclesall Primary School is a very friendly, happy, innovative and creative school. Our motto is “Happy Children, Happy School, Learning together, Growing together” and all staff, children, parents and governors share this whole school vision. We want all our children to be happy and safe and to enjoy their work whilst achieving their full potential. We want each child to be valued and recognised as an individual. We strongly believe that every child matters and have high hopes and high aspirations. We believe that all of our children have a bright and exciting future ahead of them. We achieve our success because we understand that to improve we must constantly change and evolve.

Our creative curriculum is balanced with skills teaching and projects for the children to apply those skills. The activities are fun and exciting and designed to engage all learners. We also have many extra-curricular clubs for the children to enjoy and we are always looking out for more! We will do all we can to ensure that your child’s experience is a happy one.

We work in very close partnership and feel very well supported by our parents through the Ecclesall Parents Teachers Friends Association, our Governors, the staff at Ecclesall Primary School and our local community including our local schools nearby. We are part of SWIP (South West Improving Partners) where 12 local schools work closely together sharing good practice.

Our Parents and Carers are always welcome at Ecclesall Primary School. If you have any questions about this website or about your child’s education we will be pleased to discuss them with you. We look forward to meeting you and making you and your child as welcome as possible. We hope that you find our school website useful and informative.

Kind Regards,


Emma Hardy
