Every year our year 5 children take part in the Young Voices music festival at the NEC
We have dedicated reading time throughout the school, as soon as the children return to class after lunchtime. Children share books with each other and all the adults in school, including our lunch staff.
"There is a delightful atmosphere in school. Pupils feel safe and behave exceptionally well. They take responsibility and work hard." "Pupils greatly enjoy school because learning is enriched by an array of activities both in and out of lessons. They are especially positive about sport and reading."
" I enjoy the after school clubs because they are really fun and lot's of my friends go. Also I enjoy lunchtimes, because I am with my friend and there is loads of toys. I enjoy the teachers because they are really nice and funny." - Zach, year 5.
"Playing outside at lunchtime with Kandinsky is fun." - Lola, year 1. " I like the dinners, especially the sausages." - Harley , year 1.
Behaviour - " The behaviour of pupils is outstanding." " Pupils's exemplary behaviour and very positive attitudes towards learning are key factors in their good and rapidly improving rates of progress in many subjects. Pupils are kee to succeed and they work very hard in lessons. They like the school alot. As one commented, 'I can't wait to get to school.' They have a thirst for knowledge exemplified by their passion for books and explaining in some details the writing style of their favourite author."

Whether your child is starting school for the very first time or joining us mid-way through primary school, it can be a very unsettling time and so it is essential that you are fully informed and involved from the very beginning. Our prospectus along with any visits to the school aim to provide you with all the information and reassurance that you need during this time.
At Ellistown the staff and governors are committed to providing the very best education for all, having high expectations and aspirations for all of our pupils, both in and out of the classroom. Our main aim is to ensure that all pupils have the good care and provision that they need in order for them to achieve. With our school motto - Dream, believe, achieve ... the Ellistown Way - at the heart of everything we do.
