A very warm welcome from Emma Hardy, the Head Teacher of our three form entry community primary school.

Ecclesall Primary School is a very friendly, happy, innovative and creative school. Our motto is “Happy Children, Happy School, Learning together, Growing together”. From the very start of their time at Ecclesall Primary School children know that their happiness and well-being is our priority. A whole school community approach to developing positive relationships, confidence and self-belief supports our vision that every child’s experience must be a happy one. Our children are taught lifelong skills and the importance of developing a healthy, happy mind and body. We provide a nurturing and supportive environment where children feel safe, valued, and listened to and where individuality and successes are celebrated.  Children are encouraged to talk about their thoughts and feelings and they know adults will listen. Supportive friendships are key and children know how to care for each other. Through discussion and learning, children are encouraged to develop the skills and resilience to cope with challenges and ultimately be happy, confident individuals, who love life, school and learning.

At Ecclesall Primary school we have high expectations of everyone. We want our children to love their learning, to be excited, engaged and challenged and to lead their own learning through our broad and rich curriculum. We want them to take risks, to problem solve, to be active, creative and inspired. Our new school prospectus on our website will give you more detailed information about our vision and values at Ecclesall Primary school.

We work in 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 very good practice.

We have had a very successful first year in our primary school with lots of new facilities including 15 new classrooms, a computing suite, a studio and class kitchen, a large new library in the Atrium, 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, an additional playground for our younger children and a new trim trail on the larger playground. We now feel established and ready for the exciting challenges of what a new year will bring from this September 2019.

Our Parents and Carers are always welcome at Ecclesall Primary School. We have an open door policy and pride ourselves on our friendly, welcoming ethos. We look forward to meeting you and your child. We hope that you find our school website useful and informative.

Kind Regards,

Emma Hardy
