Thank you for visiting our website to learn a bit more about us and to find out what makes us special.

We are a thriving four form entry infant school set within the heart of a highly diverse community, with over 50 different languages spoken by our children, families and staff.  Close to West Croydon train station and within easy reach of other transport links, we are always a popular choice for parents and prospective staff.  We are fortunate to have a 52 place Nursery attached to our school, providing children from the age of three with a rich and creative learning environment, helping them to develop as confident and independent young people.

At Elmwood, children learn about their rights and we are very proud of the fact that we are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.  These rights, alongside our ten super skills, encourage our children to be the best they possibly be in their learning and behaviour.  We recognise the individuality and uniqueness of every child and were awarded the Jo Cox Memorial Award in 2017 for our work on inclusion and equality.
