Developing Independent Learning in a Caring Environment

Welcome to Ellison Primary Academy.


We are a busy but friendly academy, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the academy, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. 

Please feel free to contact the academy directly with any queries you may have.

Ellison Primary Academy offers a warm welcome to you and your child.



We place great emphasis on children enjoying their learning experience, as well as reaching the highest possible standard of achievement. It’s not just about remembering dates and facts…it’s also about igniting an interest in learning that will last a lifetime!


Dedicated Staff

This would not be possible without our wonderful teaching and support staff. They are dedicated to making sure that your child enjoys their time here and reaches their potential.



I am very proud indeed that our academy is a highly supportive and caring environment,

where children feel safe to make mistakes, learn from those mistakes…and work independently

using their initiative.


Parent/Carer Partnership

Another important part of our academy, and your child’s learning journey…is you, the parent!

We champion the link between the academy and parents and work very hard to involve you in every step of your child’s time here, thus further increasing your child’s enjoyment of learning. We hope that you will contact us and visit our amazing academy. I am confident you will find this a welcoming and supportive academy, with staff that listen, consult and actively encourage your involvement. I know that you will be impressed by the quality of education and care we can offer your child. To make an appointment to visit, or to simply ask a question, please contact the school office on 01782 613674.

Societas Trust


The Societas Trust is a successful partnership between ten schools in North Staffordshire. We share a belief that the needs of children are best met when schools collaborate and cooperate and are able to maintain close links with the communities they serve. Whilst it is crucial for us to support the development of the unique identity of each school in the partnership, we also believe that by developing and promoting innovative and creative approaches to learning and teaching across the trust, we will ensure that our children have the very best opportunities to excel academically and develop socially. We believe that children learn best and thrive in environments that promote and foster self-belief, the love of learning and high expectations of themselves and others
