Chair's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the Extend Learning Academies Network, or ELAN for short.  As a multi-academy trust we are proud to serve the diverse communities around Weston-super-Mare with a firm focus on the importance of primary education.


ELAN schools are unique to themselves and represent the pupils and families in their local areas.  However, the are joined in supporting the guiding values of ELAN, namely, that we embrace individually, do the right thing and work together.  In doing so, we are making sure that pupils leave ELAN schools confident and happy in their learning as well as being equipped to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie before them.


I am very lucky to Chair the Board of Trustees and work with such talented and committed colleagues in all our schools.  It is a privilege to see the ELAN schools at work and witness at first hand the difference they are making to the pupils who attend them.


I hope you find the information on this website useful and that you seek the opportunity to see the ELAN schools at first hand to find out how they might be an excellent fit for your child’s education.
