Elm Road strives to create an atmosphere where all children and
adults feel safe, valued and included. The kind of place where every
child can arrive with a smile on their face, where there is a keen sense
of belonging and a pride in their school. We believe that all children
have a voice to be heard and that their care and education must lie at
the heart of everything we do.
We believe in life long learning and that adults can learn from
children and children can learn from adults. Sharing experiences and
together discovering the excitement and enjoyment of acquiring new
knowledge and understanding. Achievements are there to be celebrated,
ideas to be shared and respect for others is evident in all we do.
We aim to create an environment in which people are comfortable to say
‘well done’, ‘thank you’ and ‘I need help’. Where children and adults
see politeness as the norm and are happy to open doors for each other,
where attempting is celebrated as much as achieving.
School wants everyone to have the experience of tasting success and to
feel good about themselves as a member of both the school and wider
Our school is a place where children start on the
road to achieve their dreams and where adults can smile and say that our
children are well.
