We have had reported to us that there have been two recent attempted abductions of children in relatively local schools (not the immediate vicinity). This involved a dark transit van type vehicle. A member of staff also witnessed a dark car with tinted glass (unfamiliar to school) drive into our car park one morning, appear to spend some time looking around, then turn and leave. As this was suspicious, this has been reported to the local Police.
Please remind your children as we do in school, about 'stranger danger'.
We are currently working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School through UNICEF.
We're taking part in Big Pedal 2014!

Dear parents, carers, prospective parents and friends,
Welcome to our website. We hope you find the information useful as we look forward to another exciting year. In February 2013 we celebrated our achievement of a glowing report from OFSTED which recognised the high quality provision we give to all of our children:
‘Children progress well and the majority reach, and a significant number exceed, the expected levels for their age in all areas of learning.’ ‘Well planned activities capture their imagination and they are eager to learn.’ ‘Pupils work and play happily together, are unfailingly polite and friendly and show consideration and care for each other’
OFSTED February 2013
The individual success of every child in the school is at the heart of all we do. Our mission statement, school aims and policies support the desire to maintain our excellent ethos. We want all the children to have high self-esteem, a sense of belonging, to feel safe and secure, to reach their full potential, and, above all, to enjoy their school life at Eastburn.
We continually develop our creative skills based curriculum, in which subject content is drawn in to apply and refine these skills. This means that our curriculum is relevant to children’s interests and gives them involvement in the whole learning experience. We continue our work on internationalism and global sustainability with our partnership work continuing through our links with Grammar School Rawalpindi Pakistan, Revival School Uganda and e-links with St. Paul–en-Jarez School in France which have earned us the International Schools Award and the e-twinning quality label. We continue developing ourselves as a ‘Healthy School’ and carry on with all the fantastic work that gained us the prestigious ‘Eco School Green Flag Award’. Our school focus on ‘Enterprise’ life skills, encourages children to develop their creativity and initiative in projects aimed at changing both themselves, by developing essential life and learning skills, and the school, by contributing to school development. Good behaviour, social skills and safety will always be high priority here at Eastburn, focused through our work on ‘rights and responsibilities’ and working towards the award of ‘Rights Respecting School’.
We are keen that all our pupils have meaningful incentives to work hard and succeed. We continue to act as an extended school offering a wide variety of out of school clubs, including a good mix of sports, music, gardening, ICT, art and craft, cookery and French, as well as high quality childcare before and after school at Eastburn School Fun Zone.
We very much value the support of our parents/carers working together with us to provide the best for your children and work hard to provide effective two way communication between school and home. You can find out more about us through our newsletters which are posted fortnightly onto this website. We can assure you of our full commitment to your child’s education.
Mrs. Jan Elliott
