We hope you enjoy browsing through our website and that it gives you a flavour of our school community as well as providing you with all the key information you require. We have a 'family feel' to our school despite it being quite large. We all take an interest in each other and care for each other.
We take pride in our lovely building and the people inside it and create a happy, purposeful environment for our learning. Learning happens at all times and in all places, including outside in our lovely allotment and nature garden, at playtimes and lunchtimes and in the surrounding locality.
We set a high standard of expectation for both behaviour and achievement and the children rise to the challenge.
Please make direct contact with the school should you not find what you are looking for. Our office staff will give you a warm welcome and have a wealth of information!
I am always happy to welcome visitors to the school.
Ely St John's is committed to the success and happiness of every pupil and staff member. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

Well done Year 6 Mathematicians!
During lock-down, a group of our keen Year 6 Mathematicians took part in the
2020 UK Junior Maths Challenge.
This is a national maths challenge and the children had to work very hard to manage very taxing questions in an hour long test, which, this year, for the first time, was held on-line.
The challenge is for students in Year 8 and below.
We are so proud of all our children who took part.
This was a new venture for Ely St John's and all our participants did a great job.
Well done to Fin, Kieran, Joe and Gabriel who were awarded Certificates of Participation.
Well done to Lauren, Wiktor and Jake who were awarded Bronze Certificates.
Well done to Thomas, Isaac and Jasmine who were awarded Silver Certificates.
Well done to Nathan who was awarded a Gold certificate and Best in School.
Thank you to all of you for being our fantastic Maths Ambassadors.
