Welcome to Elmhurst Primary School
I would like to warmly welcome you to our school. We are a large outstanding primary school in Newham. We care passionately about our children’s education and go the extra mile to help every child reach their full potential. This is reflected in our high SATs exam results.
Our staff are highly committed to teaching stimulating and engaging lessons, concentrating on making sure that children acquire all basic skills, as well as stretching every child with our rich curriculum.
We take groups of children every year to European cities on art residential visits. Our children perform Shakespeare’s plays in local theatres. We train all our children in debating skills and have great success in regular regional competitions. We pride ourselves in our specialist sport and music provision. Our school environment is very smart with a large number of challenging climbing structures.
We teach our children good manners and encourage them to contribute to society by taking part in charity fund raising.
We provide a variety of after school classes and clubs. We also have free tutoring after school or on Saturday mornings for any child that needs it, to make sure that no child slips through the net.
We are pleased to have recently formed a Multi-Academy Trust (New Vision Trust) with three other local schools. We look forward to working collaboratively with our new partners to ensure that our provision for our pupils, staff and local community is of the highest quality. As the lead school in the Elmhurst Teaching School Alliance (ETSA), with our partner schools we provide training and support to other schools. We are also a National Maths Hub - a centre of excellence for mathematics.
