A very warm welcome to Eythorne Elvington Community Primary School.
I hope that, if this is your first visit to our website, you will be able to get an insight into who we are as a school and what we represent.
A school serving an area steeped in its mining history community – we pride ourselves on that; a Community School. We look to work as one team. Parents, staff, family members, neighbours, local businesses – all with sharing that common interest – giving children who come to Eythorne Elvington, the best possible start in life. We aim to be a place where pupils develop as people; experience rich opportunities; discover the world and just as importantly, create life-long memories whilst having fun.
We provide a caring and positive atmosphere in which every pupil is encouraged to fulfil their potential. Everything we do at school is built around our five core values. They are believed in so as to grow in confidence whilst always showing empathy to others. The staff and governors of the school provide pupils with an education that is tailored to meet each child’s individual needs whilst being ambitious for all. Being a small school allows us to foster fantastic relations with not only the pupils but their families too. We get to know what makes a child “tick”, then we take that knowledge and we get them to strive for success in all that they do. Staff work together to create a culture of ambition, modelling to pupils that it is OK to try and to fail, to show perseverance to bounce back from adversity stronger to always try again.
It is difficult to demonstrate what is so fantastic about our school through pages of a website; to truly get a feel of our school, we would love to show you ourselves – so please come along, we look forward to meeting you.
