Welcome To Eastbrook School

It is a great privilege for me to be the Head of Eastbrook Primary.  We are a happy team of people with excellent relationships with our pupils and families.We believe in putting the children at the very heart of what we do here and we strive to develop all aspects of every pupil as they move through the school, allowing them to become confident and independent learners.

We are a very welcoming school; keen to celebrate success and inviting families in to join us for assemblies and special events. We aim for all our pupils to leave us with lasting memories, wonderful friendships and equipped with essential skills to continue to be successful throughout life. Evan Hollows – Primary Head

Reading & Phonics

At Eastbrook Pimary we believe that the best way to ensure that pupils do well in English is to ensure that they become life-long engaged readers.

Children and staff at Eastbrook are enthusiastic readers and we endeavour to foster a love and passion for reading in our children from the outset. To this end, we focus throughout the year on encouraging and developing a passion for reading. We also ensure that teachers make regular recommendations to pupils to encourage reading for pleasure. Pupils also have a chance to talk to their teachers weekly about their reading habits.   READ MORE

Safeguarding at Eastbrook School

Eastbrook School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.This means that we have a comprehensive Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and strong procedures in place which we refer to in our prospectus and here on our web site. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) ensure that they are aware of these procedures.Parents and carers are encouraged to read the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be found alongside all school policies here.

We are committed to working in partnership and share relevant information with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to their welfare.

Our Designated Safeguarding Officer is Cherelle Hinds, who works closely with the Headteacher, Paul Frith and the Designated Governor for Safeguarding, Gill Ellis.
