FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I am delighted to welcome you to Essa Primary. Essa Primary is an integral part of our locality and together we will ensure Essa Primary continues to be a school we are proud of.
At Essa Primary, we set every child on a path to achieve their dreams, enabling them to drive their own future to greater success. In doing so they will shape our diverse community for the better. We are an inclusive school, providing an innovative, technologically advanced, exciting, creative and engaging approach to learning and teaching. We are committed to excellence and continuous improvement in all that we do.
It is our values that determine our thinking and behaviuor. Through a values focused education, a positive culture for teaching and learning is created which is based upon valuing ourselves, each other and the environment.
Our school values support the development of the whole child.
'This is a happy and caring school. Pupils told us that they feel safe. Pupils appreciate that adults take the time to check on their well-being each morning. They know that teachers care about them and will listen to any worries they may have.'
'Children get off to a flying start in Reception. They achieve very well in the different areas of learning. This is because staff are expert in helping children to develop their speaking and listening skills. Everyone is made to feel special. Teachers in the early years have created classrooms brimming with exciting learning activities.' (Ofsted 2019)
II believe we have something very special at Essa Primary. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information about our Essa Primary family and the amazing work that takes place here.
