Meet the Team

These extraordinary times call for a change in the way that traditionally our Reception transition is done. This page is designed to provide you with all of the information that will help you and your child make a smooth transition to Ellacombe C of E Academy for the 2020/21 academic year.

At Ellacombe we understand the importance of finding the right primary school to start your child’s journey through education. We take this responsibility very seriously and even though these uncertain times, we are here to support you every step of the way.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
