Welcome to St. Elizabeth’s Primary School. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to tell you about the work and the activities that take place at our school and the Christian values under which it operates.

Entering school is an important step in the life of any child and at St. Elizabeth’s we endeavour to make your child’s time here happy and productive.

As parents you naturally want the best for your child and we take that responsibility very seriously. We have high expectations of our children and we are proud of their achievements and the happy atmosphere that they create.   Everyone at St. Elizabeth’s is special and is valued for the contribution that they make to the life of the school as well as the work that they do as individuals.

As part of our learning we have arranged a trip to the Open Centre, in Derby. Whilst the children are at the Open Centre they will have the opportunity to visit some local places of worship such as; a Hindu Temple and a Mosque. We believe that it is increasingly important that pupils have an understanding of the diversity of religious traditions, practices and forms of worship found in our country but please be assured that under no circumstances will any child be asked to participate in any aspect of worship or be required to compromise their own faith or beliefs during this study visit.
