Welcome to St Elphin's CE Primary School

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



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.

    Summer holiday information
    Good afternoon, As Gavin Williamson recently informed the Education Select Committee that he did not expect schools to be open over the summer holiday, Warrington schools are therefore informing all parents and carers that school will be closed as planned for our summer holidays with our last day on Friday 17th July 2020. We have no control over what the DfE might decide in the coming weeks, but will ensure to contact all parents and carers via School Ping and our website, should there be any changes to these plans. We hope this enables you to make arrangements for the summer holidays. Kind regards, Alison Bennett Headteacher

    St Elphin's CE Primary School wider opening risk assessment
    Dear Parents and Carers, As we prepare for the wider opening of school, we have carefully considered all aspects of safety and followed all available guidance to complete a thorough risk assessment. This outlines what we have already put in place in preparation for more pupils and staff to return to school. As with all risk assessments this will be updated regularly and we will notify you of any updated risk assessments, which we will send to you via School Ping and publish on our website. We hope that this document will provide you with a clear understanding of the detailed actions that we have worked hard to put in place to ensure we are doing all we can to make school as safe as possible. We hope you will find this reassuring and helpful. Kind regards, Alison Bennett Headteacher

    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

    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.

Our Half-Term Christian Value in Summer 2 is RESPONSIBILITY and our British Value is RULE OF LAW
