On behalf of the children, staff, governors and the whole school community I am delighted to welcome you to the new website for Elton Primary School.
I am very proud to have been appointed Head Teacher in January 2017 and I am supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. The school is a one and a half form entry primary school with nursery provision and is part of the Bury College Education Trust. You can view more about the Trust by clicking here.
We have high expectations of all of our children, and would like them to leave school being the very best that they can be as we strive to provide them with the best possible education for every pupil in a stimulating and safe environment:
We are committed to all aspects of education and development, encouraging families to work in partnership with us to realise our aim of successfully helping each child to achieve their full potential.
Following our most recent Ofsted inspection in November 2018, Elton is now a GOOD School.
The Ofsted report highlights the positive practices which are taking place across the school and celebrates the improvements which have been made over recent months. The report particularly commended ‘the headteacher and her leadership team have shown considerable energy and determination’.
Highlights from the report include the following:
- 'pupils behave well and show positive attitudes to their learning'
- 'high expectations of pupils' work and behaviour'
- 'pupils are making strong progress in their learning'
- 'The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good.’
- 'Pupils make good progress from their starting points'
- 'teachers plan children's next steps effectively'
