“… a determination to achieve the very best for the pupils.”

Ofsted July 2019

At Ellesmere Primary School, we believe our role is to inspire young people to be ambitious, independent learners, who are passionate about the world around them.

We want our pupils to be fully equipped to, “be the change they want to see in the world”. Key to achieving this is ensuring we deliver creative, stimulating learning, which engages children of all backgrounds and abilities, and inspires a thirst for knowledge.

One of our top priorities is the welfare of every individual within our school community. As such, we teach our children ways to promote and support their own and others’ wellbeing. As part of this we encourage everyone to celebrate difference and challenge inequalities. We believe that ensuring our pupils feel happy, respected and valued, provides the foundations for a successful learning environment.

As a school we operate within a specific set of ‘Ellesmere Values’; Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Teamwork, Creativity and Community.

We believe that instilling these values in children from an early age will lead them to be well rounded, thoughtful members of society, who will flourish as individuals and achieve whatever they set out to do.

We joined North West Academies Trust in 2016 and we are excited to be working with them to improve opportunities and outcomes for our children.

Reception Children Spring into Action

In Reception we have continued our focus on Spring and have spent lots of time outdoors! We have read a variety of fiction and non-fiction books linking to Spring, as well as other versions of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We discovered so many signs of Spring this week in Forest School. I wonder if any […]
