Elements Primary School is a new school for Leeds, sponsored under the Free Schools programme by the Wellspring Academy Trust. We opened in September 2018, Elements has been built to meet the increased demand in the Middleton area of South Leeds.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a provision in its early days. If you have a creative, innovative and passionate approach to Key Stage 1 and are a positive solution finder who puts children first then we want to hear from you.
