Elmhurst’s pupils are immersed in rich learning experiences, which equip them with the knowledge and skills required to accompany them on their lifelong journey. These experiences motivate pupils and enable them to influence the world around them and develop a sense of self in an ever-changing diverse world.
All students are empowered to fulfil their potential, housed in a culture of excellence and high ambition. All are challenged to be the best they can be, within an inclusive and supportive community. Our pastoral values of Respect, Trust, Kindness and Forgiveness are at the heart of our community; our interactions with each other and our environment. We provide our pupils with the opportunity to develop the skills to take ownership of their behaviours and to learn from both theirs and others’ interactions, developing a sense of justice and self control.
An Elmhurst Experience
At Elmhurst Junior School we expect our pupils to receive an excellent provision of education through a stimulating and experience-rich curriculum. Learning builds upon the knowledge pupils already have. Through well planned and carefully sequenced lessons learning is built upon throughout the year and throughout their time at Elmhurst; preparing them for a successful transition onto the next step in their learning journey.
Pupils can expect to learn through a variety of experiences and events, both inside the classroom and outside in our stunning grounds or the wider community. We are fortunate to have a school steeped in history, extensive grounds and a fantastic Forest School.
Throughout their time at Elmhurst pupils are supported by our strong links with both feeder and receiving schools. They are inspired to learn and prepare for a successful transition to their next educational journey.
Learning builds upon pupils’ existing knowledge and develops new skills through carefully planned and sequenced lessons, shaping the foundations for future achievement and personal passion for all our pupils.
All staff are highly trained to enable pupils to receive the highest standard of education, where lessons are carefully developed to meet the needs of our learners, offering both challenge and support in equal measures.
