Elsenham C. of E. Primary School is located in the heart of the village of Elsenham, close to the market town of Bishop's Stortford. We are a popular school and draw children from a number of surrounding villages and towns. We are two form entry, with 14 classes catering for 333 children aged 4 to 11.

The front of our school is a traditional Victorian school building but in recent years we have benefitted from a new build of classrooms, offices, a dedicated food technology room and a studio. We also have plenty of outdoor space and a dedicated library.

At Elsenham C. of E. Primary School, we seek to foster high standards of learning and behaviour in a happy and caring environment and to promote excellence throughout the school. We aim to provide the best possible staffing, resources and organisation needed to help every child achieve their potential.

We believe that the education of all children relies on a shared partnership between home and school, and we are fortunate that we have supportive parents who work with us to help provide the best possible learning opportunities for the children. Our most recent OFSTED inspection report (March 2019), praised the work of our school and judged us "good" in all areas and highlighted many strengths. As we look to the future, we will continue to build on these as we aim for further school improvement.

We enjoy strong partnerships with local schools in both Essex (Uttlesford Partnership) and Hertfordshire (Envision). Through these links we access CPD opportunities, professional networking and experience peer review and moderation.

As a church school we were subject to a SIAMS inspection and were judged to be outstanding (2016). Everything we do at Elsenham Cof E primary school is built upon the Christian values of Love, Wisdom, Compassion, Courage, Peace and Truth. This ensures that every child and every staff member can feel safe and happy in a caring and fulfilling environment. We hope that every child who goes through our school can feel equipped to make a positive contribution to society.
We pride ourselves on our parent partnerships and we enjoy good, supportive relationships with the parents and our local community. We have a proactive FOES (Friends of Elsenham School) and a committed Governing Body.
Together, we are all working towards our children being confident and independent learners who have the courage to seize all opportunities available to them both now and in the future. Every one of our children is special with talents and strengths in a variety of areas. To enable them to be successful we deliver a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, which is fun, challenging and accessible to all. Academic achievement is important but equally we value the spiritual and personal development with a holistic approach towards child development. There is a happy, purposeful and hardworking ethos amongst both staff and children.

We have a great team here at Elsenham and everyone is valued. It’s a lovely place to come to school, whether you are a child or an adult.
