Welcome to our school website. We understand that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make and we hope that the information you find here will support you in making this decision.
On 1 June 2019 Elmhurst School joined the Great Learners Trust. The Great Learners Trust, which was established in 2014, is a local multi-academy trust specialising in primary education based in Buckinghamshire. The aim of the trust is to provide local, responsive, practical and strategic support for all partner schools; Elmhurst, Great Missenden, Princes Risborough, Wooburn Green, Bearbrook Combined, Bedgrove Junior, Great Kimble and West Wycombe.
As a school we are rapidly improving and we are determined to provide a high quality education for all of our children and ensure that each pupil achieves their very best. We ensure that every child is known and cared about as an individual whilst learning in a safe, stimulating and challenging environment. We are continually striving to improve outcomes and life chances for our pupils and make our school the best that it can be. We have high expectations of our community; pupils, parents and staff and our three core school values 'Aspire, Create, Think' run throughout all the work that we do; driving us towards our aim of providing the very best education we can.
Elmhurst is a well-resourced primary school; all classrooms are equipped with up-to-date Information Communication Technologies (ICT) and other learning resources. We have a dedicated adult learning space, children's kitchen, counselling hub, sensory room and a well-stocked library. As well as computers in our ICT suite and a class set of tablets for the children to use.
We have recently redeveloped our EYFS reception outdoor learning space, our parent/pupil entrance and an artist has worked across the school site to enhance our learning environment.
We know that a close partnership with parents is vital to the successful education of all of our children and we encourage parents to communicate with us as a school at every opportunity. Parents are regularly invited into school for our authentic outcomes linked to our Guerrilla Curriculum, end of term productions/performance, sporting events, parent workshops and stay and play sessions. We also have two Family Support Workers on the team who are available to support parents in a wide variety of different ways.
Life at Elmhurst reflects our determination to secure the best possible learning outcomes for all. We take every opportunity to celebrate success whilst also ensuring that our children are happy and learn the skills and values to become successful citizens of the future. We have a very dedicated team of staff who work hard to support all of our families.
Educating children is a great responsibility and privilege. If you are a parent of a child already attending Elmhurst School, thank you for entrusting us with that job. If you are considering sending your child to our school, please do come and visit; meet the children and staff and talk to us about our vision for the school. We operate an open door policy and welcome current parents, potential parents and other visitors to come and see the school in action and we look forward to meeting you.
