What the school says...

The quality of early education that a child receives will have a significant effect on their life chances. At Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery we are determined to give all children, every opportunity to succeed. Our aim is to inspire all children to create and achieve.

We believe that it is essential for children to master the key skills of reading, writing and mathematics. We want every child to achieve their very best and so our highly skilled teaching team make sure that each child receives a learning programme matched to their needs.

In a society which is constantly changing we all need to be lifelong learners. To create a love for learning we actively involve pupils in the planning of the curriculum, this makes it meaningful to them. We also provide a range of exciting enrichment activities to make learning fun!

To prepare children for the future, we also think it vitally important that they develop independent learning skills. As learners we want children to know and celebrate what they can do well, but also identify what they need to do next. From their earliest years, opportunities are planned for pupils to undertake tasks independently, in this way they become creative and resilient learners.

Our children are confident learners because they know that their effort and achievements will be celebrated. They are also given many opportunities to learn collaboratively and understand that making mistakes is part of learning.

We are immensely proud of each and every one of our pupils and hope that you are able to visit us so that they can show you what our school is all about.
