Eastfield Academy is part of the David Ross Education Trust and is a good and rapidly improving school where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. The Academy aims to give children a really good start in life by developing their basic skills in literacy and numeracy while also giving them the chance to apply these skills in real life situations.
We aim to give children a really good start in life by developing their skills in literacy and numeracy while also giving them the chance to apply these skills in real life situations. We want children to leave our school as individuals able to get on well with each other and with memories they will keep for the rest of their lives.

We believe that every child has the right to have...
- Education that meets their needs and interests
- Achieved success and have this celebrated
- A safe, happy and stimulating environment
- The opportunity to develop their own mind and opinions
- Family support
- Involvement in the wider community
- Encouragement and support to become an individual and confident learner
- Learnt skills they will need later in life
We are committed to provide a positive, supportive but challenging learning environment for children and staff where:
- Social, personal and academic skills are developed.
- Self-esteem and self-reliance are nurtured.
- Standards of excellence for life and for work are promoted in all areas.
To nurture these principles we try to encompass the following aims:
- School and learning should be enjoyable, productive and an integral part of every child’s life where a child can develop empathy with his/her surroundings.
- School should create a caring and happy environment so that all children experience success and achievement.
- School should recognise each member as an individual with particular needs and develop a background where each member can join with ideas and share experiences and impressions with others.
- School should offer a well balanced and broad based curriculum that will ensure that all targets set by the National Curriculum are available to all children and should include academic, cultural, social, spiritual and physical development and growth and prepare them for the experiences, opportunities and responsibilities of secondary education and adult life.
