Welcome to Elson Junior School.
Our school values of integrity, aspiration, compassion, creativity and adaptability drive everything we do. We want our children to be happy and successful members of our school and wider community. I am very proud to be Headteacher of our school. We have wonderful, creative and engaging children, supportive families and a fantastic team of dedicated staff. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum packed with exciting topics and creative opportunities for learning and I am also extremely proud of the importance we place on the ‘whole child’. Our provision for nurture, emotional well-being and family support is highly valued by our staff, children and families in our community. I do hope that you are able to find any information you need and you can also check our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news. It’s difficult to fully capture the essence of our wonderful school and pupils without actually coming in to experience it! If you would like to visit then please do contact us – you will be made very welcome.

Parent of child in Y3 (June 2020)
"Can't praise EJS enough for our child's first year. Their teaching staff, LSAs, Senior Team have all helped, supported and encouraged our son's learning before and during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have always felt listened to and kept up to date with our son's progress. Year 3 has been a strange one however the additional support we have received has been amazing for his learning, social and emotional well-being.”
