Headteacher's Welcome


We warmly welcome you to Eldon Primary School. We hope your child will have a happy and calm start and we look forward to working together with you to provide a successful beginning to your child’s education.

Eldon Primary School currently has 250 pupils on roll. We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer quality learning provision for children as young as two years old in our onsite Nursery class. Currently there are eight classes located in our impressive Victorian building, which is 134 years old this year! Following several years of ongoing building works, the school’s facilities are in tune with our children’s modern needs and suited well to delivering an exciting and bespoke curriculum. Facilities as a 4D Immersive Room, Radio Station, Eldon Forest and Eldon House, as well as our latest escapade… Eldon TV, make us a pretty impressive and unique school! I am delighted to say that the schools community is very proud of the local, regional and national accolades. These are a true testimony to the hardworking staff teams, pupils, parents, Governors and our wider community.

At Eldon Primary we aim to maximise children’s achievement by removing barriers to learning through a varied, inclusive curriculum delivered in a safe, stimulating environment. The success of this approach can be seen not just in the fantastic academic results our children achieve, but also in the confidence and enthusiasm for learning our well-rounded children exude.

As a primary school, we believe we have a key role in society in combating discrimination and promoting fairness, justice and equality through our teaching and in the role models we offer. We believe our children’s successes affirm this work and are passionate about ensuring they own these values. We welcome families to come and visit our school and see the children enjoying their learning.

We hope the information contained on this website will help you to understand more about starting at Eldon Primary School. If you would like to know more you are welcome to visit us by contacting the school to make an appointment.

Catherine Howlett (Office Bursar), Vicky Smith (Secretary) and Sarah Nuttall (Office Administrator) are the persons responsible for dealing with queries from parents, carers and members of the public.

I look forward to meeting you and your child and welcoming you at Eldon Primary School.
