Elland C of E Junior, Infant & Nursery School (VA)


On behalf of the Governors and staff of Elland Church of England School I welcome you to our new look web site. There’s lots of information about our school, for both children and parents, so we hope you'll enjoy browsing what’s on offer. We are always updating the website so please visit often.

Elland Church of England School is an aided school, a distinction upon which we are proud of.  The school serves the local community where children from different faiths, backgrounds and abilities are encouraged to learn to live together and to treat other people with care and consideration.

Elland Church of England School is a part of the work and witness of the Church in our neighbourhood.  The links with St Mary’s and All Saints Church are strong and vital and we work to embody our Christian foundation in all aspects of school life.

The school has long aspired to high standards of behaviour and achievement.  All our children are encouraged to do their very best in a caring and supportive environment.  Everyone working at the school plays an important part in making children feel valued, happy and secure.  Our teachers are experienced, conscientious in their duties and devote a great deal of time and effort to provide high quality education for our pupils.  However, we cannot succeed alone. Children need to know their parents and teachers are in partnership.  Working together we can help our children achieve their true potential.

There will be many more things you wish to know about the school.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Mr C Wightman

Executive Headteacher

Our Vision

Co-operating with God's continuing act of Creation, Elland C of E School is a welcoming community that seeks to be a safe place to live and work. By embedding Christian Values, we will encourage our learners to be resilient and to develop a love of learning. We promote high standards of achievement in all the children do and the goals they set for themselves. By enabling our children to make informed choices and to learn how disagreement and recognition of difference can be combined with love and respect for all people, we will prepare them for life in Britain today.

Motto: Welcome, Safe Haven, Creation, Respect.
