Reception Intake 2021

Ellacombe Parent Questionnaire Feedback – 98.7% of parents say their child is happy and feels safe at the school.

Welcome to Ellacombe C of E Academy! We are delighted that you are thinking of joining our school family in September 2021 and we would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to the Learning Academy Partnership.  We are really looking forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their primary education. 

We understand that starting school can feel daunting and we believe the induction of a new child to our academy family is important and crucial to ensuring their future success.  At Ellacombe Academy, we do everything we can to ensure our families are fully informed about the journey ahead; the curriculum that will be taught, the approach to teaching in the Foundation Stage, as well as the practical arrangements of starting school. 

Given the current Covid-19 pandemic, how we support induction into our school may look a little different to what we’ve done in previous years; however, please rest assured that we are here for you and we will do all we can to ensure that your little one is ready, confident and excited about starting school in September 2021.  Although we are unable to share dates for our induction process, you will find all of the information that you need here to make this transition a success.  We appreciate your patience and understanding with this.

Please also visit other pages on our website, our Twitter page or our  Facebook page to find out more about our fabulous academy; we work extremely hard to keep everything up to date, sharing all of the fabulous learning that takes place each term.

Remember, if you have any questions or queries, no matter how small they may seem, please feel free to contact the academy office and ask to speak to Miss Blakesley (EYFS Lead) or Mrs Semmens (Head of Academy) and they will be able to help.


Due to the new lockdown restrictions, we are currently unable to offer tours of the Academy.

We have put together a video for perspective parents to show our Reception learning environment.

For further information please contact the Academy and ask to speak to Mrs Driver.
