Welcome to Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery School

Welcome to Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery School

Elmsleigh Nursery & Infant School is an Enhanced Resource School in South Derbyshire. We are a mainstream school with additional funding to develop expertise and resources to work with pupils with high level needs, who may live outside the area normally served by the school. We are one of 17 Derbyshire schools that has ER status.

Our Enhanced Resource which has developed over time,  supports 16 places throughout school from Nursery to Year 2.  Eight places are intended for pupils with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)  and eight places for pupils with other severe and complex special educational needs. Throughout their school day, the children with an ER placement in the Reception to Year 2 age range may spend time in a separate highly staffed and specially adapted class room known as the Rainbow Room, or within a mainstream class with additional support, or a mixture of both, dependent on each child’s individual needs.
