Elveden CofE Primary Academy is a small Church of England school located within the Elveden Estate. We pride ourselves on our family atmosphere and the personal approach we bring to meeting each child's needs.
We think Elveden offers a wondrous atmosphere that helps and encourages children to learn, and we invite all parents to join us in building a bond with the school to help our children to succeed.

We encourage children to be confident and enthusiastic learners and enable them to take risks. Within a climate of high expectation and challenge, all children are guided, supported and inspired to fulfil their true potential, emotionally, physically, spiritually and intellectually, both during their time at school and in their life ahead.
