Welcome to St Elphin's CE Primary School

23/03/2020 onwards -SCHOOL IS CLOSED EXCEPT FOR CHILDREN WHOSE PARENTS HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY PHONE ON FRIDAY. IF THAT IS NOT YOU PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL. REGULAR UPDATES FOR HOME-LEARNING WILL BE POSTED ON THE DEDICATED CORONAVIRUS INFO PAGE

We give you a very warm welcome to St Elphin's Church of England V.A Primary School.

At St Elphin's, we are an aspirational school with high expectations, firmly rooted in Christian Values. These Values underpin and drive all of our learning and attitudes, making school such a positive, happy and purposeful place to be.

We are all on a learning journey together; discovering, nurturing and growing each person's talents, strengths and skills.

Our staff team is passionate and determined to inspire every child to develop a love of learning and life; encouraging and supporting them to understand their role as responsible citizens with a positive contribution to make.

Our children are truly amazing and very proud of their school. We work in close partnership with home, the Church and the community in order to give the children a strong support network in which to flourish. St Elphin's is a very special place where we happily learn, care, serve and share together, in faith.

Mrs A Bennett

Headteacher.

EYFS: TO ALL OUR NURSERY AND RECEPTION CHILDREN STARTING WITH US IN 2020-21

Normally at this time of year we would begin to hold new parents meetings in school and to begin the transition process ready for your child starting with us in September. In these difficult circumstances we have had to amend our usual programme and find ways of passing on information instead. We have done a virtual tour of the EYFS department (please click on the approrpriate class video below) as well as some information that we would like you to read. We know it won't be the same as our usual face to face meetings but we hope you know how much we are looking forward to welcoming you to our St Elphin's School family.

    Resources linked to managing worries
    Good morning, Thank you so much for your hard work at home, supporting your children during this challenging and unusual time. We know you are doing a great job and want to reassure you that whatever work you are supporting your children to do whilst at home, is amazing. We are still unaware of when and how schools will reopen but want to reassure you that as soon as we know any information from a trusted source we will keep you well informed. I understand that learning at home is sometimes difficult and we really appreciate that many of you are also trying to juggle working from home yourselves as well as supporting your children’s home learning. When we do return to school we want you to know that whatever learning the children have done at home will really help them. Learning at home will look very different for all families but we will manage this to make sure that all children can make a smooth transition when we return to full schooling. You are doing a brilliant job and we would like to say thank you. To continue to assist you and your families and ensure we are all looking after our well-being and promoting good mental health for all, we have been sent some great resources linked to managing worries and anxiety. There may be some useful ideas or information that may support your family or someone you know so we have attached them to this Ping message as well as putting them on our school website under the Coronavirus tab. If you need any further information or help, you can phone school or email us and we will do all we can to support you. All of the staff are very much looking forward to seeing the children and families as soon as we can and we think of you often. Please take care, Warm wishes, Alison Bennett Headteacher

    Dear Parents/Carers, Just wanted to check in with you all and make sure you are safe and well. It has been a strange week in school and extremely quiet without the hustle and bustle of our usual full school. Thankfully the weather has been kind and we hope you have at least managed to poke your head out in the sunshine. Despite all the difficulties this current situations creates remember there are blessings in every situation. The children who have been in school have missed their friends lots but they have coped extremely well in different classes with different staff. The new home learning for next week is now up on the website and the VLE. We hope you find time to enjoy some quality time with your family. With love to you all. Mrs Noble

    A message of huge thanks
    Dear Parents, As I closed the gates today I felt a mixture of sadness and gratitude; sadness that we will not be together as a learning community for sometime and gratitude to all of you as parents for the lovely messages of support that we have received. We now move into a period of unknown territory and we have to navigate this together with kindness, patience and clear communication. Your children have been utterly amazing this week which has reinforced what we already know- that St Elphin's is a beautifully unique and exceptionally special place filled with the most amazing adults, children and families. We will miss all of our gorgeous children and look forward to us all coming back together as soon as we can. Can I wish you a peaceful weekend and we will continue to update you next week. Our school office phones will be monitored Monday to Thursday 8-4pm and Friday 8-3.30pm (as best we can) and you are also able to email us at stelphins_primary@warrington.gov.uk. We will continually update our website and Ping out any relevant updates. Remember that if you are struggling to access School Ping at any time, our whole school updates can also be accessed on the homepage of our website on the live feed. Warmest wishes, Alison Bennett Headteacher.
