Welcome to Elkesley Primary and Nursery School!

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.

The school opened in 1961 and has been extended in several stages since then as numbers increased. The school serves the village of Elkesley and the surrounding rural community.

Elkesley Primary and Nursery enjoys a close partnership with Tuxford Comprehensive School and the primary schools within the Tuxford Family of Schools. This exciting partnership allows enhanced opportunities for all pupils whilst preserving the unique identity of the school.

Our aim at Elkesley is to ensure all our pupils enjoy their learning and develop the necessary skills to achieve their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. The curriculum is carefully designed to be both challenging and exciting and to instil in our pupils a genuine desire to learn. Wherever possible enhanced opportunities for learning are provided, through visits to places of interest or visitors who come into school to enrich our learning and broaden knowledge.

Should you wish to visit the school please contact the office to arrange an appointment, I look forward to meeting you and showing you around where you can experience first hand the welcoming and vibrant atmosphere that is Elkesley Primary and Nursery School.
