Information about the school

Eastchurch Primary School is a nurturing, inclusive, learning community that celebrates all possibilities, through a journey of exploration, engagement and enrichment, enabling all to take risks, build resilience and grow together in God’s love. Our vision flows from our biblical strapline taken from Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Together with our vision, our core values of courage, forgiveness, honesty, kindness, love and respect are at the heart of everything we do.

As a two-form entry school split over two sites, we offer a unique experience for staff and families. Each site offers a one-form entry, family friendly school atmosphere, set within the support of a large vibrant organisation. Our sites, although very different in appearance, offer a consistent ethos, working together to ensure our children experience success and excitement in their learning every day.

We are proud of our ECO status and take an active role in the environment and community life. We value outdoor learning including our developing forest and beach schools.

Eastchurch Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The school will conduct all necessary safer recruitment checks before employment commences.
