The day kicked off at 8.30 am with face painting in the ICT suite. Thank you to Tracey, Mrs Walling, Mrs Nicks and Mr Garvey for doing such a good job.
Everyone looked great in their mufti – much of which was Children in Need or Pudsey themed…
In the afternoon, Pudsey Bear himself came into school to visit us and to thank us for all we’d done. We were so excited to see him and were really impressed by his dabbing!
Well done everyone – fantastic effort!

Last half term, the School Council decided to support the Boxes of Hope Charity who collect shoe boxes full of Christmas gifts and deliver them to children in Eastern Europe.
We were delighted by the support we received from the families at Ellel! Over 70 boxes were donated and will bring real happiness and joy to children less fortunate than ourselves this Christmas.
Thank you very much to all those who supported this really worthwhile cause.
Well done Ellel St. John’s! You have raised a massive….
We encourage our children to take an active part in our school. Two children from each class from Year 1 upwards meet with the Deputy Headteacher half-termly to discuss matters of importance in the school. The aim of the school council is to improve the quality of provision for all children. Over the last couple of years the school council requested new playtime equipment; they took ownership of the project costing and ordering play equipment. To complete this exciting venture they also led school worship, introducing the new items and rules for playtimes.
