I am very pleased to introduce you to Elliott Park. In this prospectus you will see why we have developed a reputation as a caring community where each pupil has maximum opportunity to realise his or her potential.

Our school is a happy, energetic and dedicated community. We set ourselves high standards in all that we do, ensuring that our pupils move from us into secondary education, proud of their own achievements and with the necessary knowledge, skills and positive attitudes to face their GCSE courses with confidence.

I hope that you will be convinced that Elliott Park is the right school for your son or daughter

Richard Barson

Elliott Park is a co-educational independent day school founded by Mr. Richard Fielder. It first opened on 11th September 1985, in a hired hall in St. Georges Avenue, Sheerness, moving to its present site in the following year.

Elliott Park School is small, friendly and caring with a strong academic tradition, and great stress is placed on the all-round development of the child. The size of the school and the family atmosphere means that children are offered very personal attention; this first class education coupled with the courtesy engendered in them lead to smooth transfer of boys and girls to secondary schools at the age of 11. The experienced and well qualified staff are fully committed to the school’s aims and your child’s success.

We seek to provide the very best infant and junior education for children of all levels of ability, by means of:-

• A well designed curriculum
• High expectations
• Small classes
• Firm, but kind discipline


Great emphasis is laid on acquiring the skills of Literacy, Numeracy and Science. The school has developed an individualised system of reading backed by phonics, and children progress at their very own speed through levels of reading appropriate to their ability. There is a wide choice of reading books at every level.
Children use various Mathematics schemes, some by Heinemann, Nelson and Target, as the main spine upon which activities are based, whilst for Science we use the Collins scheme. These are nationally known schemes which ensure progression from one year to the next and are supplemented by materials from other sources ensuring a breadth of mathematical and scientific experiences.

We believe that children should be exposed to a broad curriculum and this is reflected in the variety of subjects on offer including: History, Geography, Religious Education, P.E. and swimming, Games, French, German, Music, Information Technology, Art & Design, and Dance and Drama.

The curriculum is under constant review. Additional instrumental tuition is also available at a separate cost.

In the early years children are with their form teacher for most of the time. As they get older they may expect to receive specialist teaching in some subjects as a preparation for senior schools, where all teaching is in the hands of subject specialists.

The children are taught in small classes and groups of their own age and ability range. Teachers with additional qualifications are available to meet the needs of dyslexic and dyspraxic pupils.


Homework is integral to the learning process and provides a communication link between home and school. It has been shown to be beneficial to children’s learning as part of the curriculum. Children bring work home from the infant classes onwards.
In the early years this may be words to learn, number work, tables and reading.

From about 7 years children bring work home in other subjects and are expected to complete the assignment set and within the time allowed. Clearly they will need support and help in completing some tasks. Older pupils follow a planned homework timetable which is made available to parents for information. Homework often includes revision of work already learned.

Nursery and Young Infants

Children are accepted for entry in the academic year in which they become 4. Nursery and young infants are called Sunbeams and learn both social and academic skills. They learn to read, write and manipulate numbers and participate in various activities. Sunbeams integrate with the whole school through assemblies, music and play. The school closely follows the themes for Early Learning Goals desired by the Department for Education and Skills namely: - Personal and Social Development, Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Physical Development, and Creative Development.


• To create for every pupil a happy and safe school environment.

• To ensure a command of the English language and an ability to communicate with other people with poise and confidence.

• To encourage an enjoyment of reading.

• To develop a knowledge and an understanding of mathematical operations.

• To awaken an awareness of the heritage around us through Science, History and Geography.

• To maintain right moral values in an ordered society, promoting courtesy, good manners, honesty and consideration for others as very important qualities.


Sport and Games
The school offers a range of sports and games appropriate to the age and ability of the children. In the younger classes the emphasis is on co-ordination activities and small group games. In the upper part of the school children have experience of: - Hockey, Netball, Football, Cricket, Rounders, Basketball and Rugby. Our annual Sports Day takes place in July.

On a rota all the pupils visit the Sheerness Swimming Pool once a week for swimming lessons. This involves a coach journey from school, and at the end of the session, children are met at the pool by their parents as this coincides with the end of the school day.

Extra Curricular Activities
The school offers a wide range of free after-hour activities such as arts and craft, IT, reading and homework clubs
