Our schools are currently closed. We remain open between 8am-6pm, Monday-Friday, for children who are identified as vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response, as defined in government documentation.

Following a rise in COVID-19 cases in Weston-super-Mare and the precautionary closure of local A&E provision, Trustees have decided to delay the wider reopening of ELAN schools to children in Preschool, YR, Y1 and Y6 by one week.

This will be reviewed by trustees on 4th June. Confirmation of specific year group opening dates, times and procedures will be conveyed to parents and carers following this review.

Extend Learning Academies Network schools support a mixed demographic in both semi rural and urban settings across the county. This also includes an area of deprivation within the top 0.5% nationally.



Our schools are an established working group with a shared ethos and a history and culture of collaboration and collaborative development that has grown and evolved over the last 10+ years and continues to do so. This work has been key in the development of:


  • Teaching and learning
  • Subject specialism
  • A bespoke curriculum
  • Excellent classroom practice
  • Outstanding progress for all pupils
  • Enriched opportunities for learners
  • Culture of support and challenge
  • The sharing of best practice and resources


Our schools are all committed to taking full advantage of the opportunities that working in a collaborative multi academy trust presents, extending the capacity, sustainability and ability of the group to deliver an extraordinary education, experiences and outcomes for all young people.
