“Ellacombe reception has been brilliant for my son. The kind caring environment that they provide nurtures his individuality as well as his education and development. He loves his teachers and has made so many friends. There is clearly a great understanding of kindness and friendship within the school which is so important to help cultivate children’s empathy, understanding and support to each other as well as the wider community. During the challenging times of 2020 I think the school has done a fantastic job to keep children safe and stable. All three of my children are so comfortable at Ellacombe and I feel fortunate the school has been there for us as a family.”

“We have never experienced a school like Ellacombe! We left feeling on a high and so excited about our child starting with you. It is a fantastic school and you can’t help but be overwhelmed by the love, passion and enthusiasm of everyone.”

“I cannot believe how much progress my child has made over the past 2 years. We can really see him working towards where he should be! Thank you for incredible support.”

“You have secured strong provision in the early years. This has led to a positive trend of children achieving a good level of development.”

“Pupils feel safe. They know what to do if they have any concerns and are confident to share their worries with any member of staff. They are unanimous in their view that they are happy and well cared for at Ellacombe. Pupils, parents and carers regularly refer to the ‘family feel’ of the school.”
