Welcome To Elmwood Primary School

Elmwood School was first opened on a site in Hullbridge Road in 1929 with just three classrooms.

The site of the original school was repurposed and  is now the site of Champions Manor Hall.

A painting of the "Old School" is shown adjacent to this text.

Since then the school has gone from strength to strength and is now an excellent, well equipped, bright building in Guys Farm Road with 15 classrooms. All the classes are single units and this enables us to create a calm, quiet atmosphere in which the children can concentrate on the task in hand.

There is a large playing field, and three separate playgrounds, all of which provide us with an ideal educational environment. The children are encouraged to take an active role in caring for the outdoor environment and the school is the first in Essex to gain four International Eco-School Awards.

We have separate, well-stocked library areas for infant and junior classes, two dining rooms and two multi-purpose halls, one equipped with stage lighting. The school has a variety of audio-visual aids and other educational equipment, which includes a Computer Suite and Music Studio, and every classroom has an Interactive Smart board for the children to use, as well as the traditional Whiteboard.

It is the intention of the governors to actively pursue opportunities for improvement of the school - not just educationally, but through ongoing maintenance and improvement of the site as a whole.

We can provide Breakfast and After-school Care in our “Woodys” club every day during term time and have a popular Baby and Toddler Club, Woodykins, who meet one morning per week; Wednesdays.

Elmwood Pre-School has long been an established part of the Elmwood family and accepts children from two years old until they commence Primary school.
