Welcome to Eastfield Infants' and Nursery School

Mrs AkhurstIt gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our School website.

Whether you have a child here at the School already, or if you are considering applying for a place here, I hope you will find this information useful.

At Eastfield Infants and Nursery School we pride ourselves on having an 'open door policy' which means that you are welcome to come in to speak to staff at the beginning and end of the day if you have any questions or concerns about your child's welfare or education.

In addition, I am always happy to talk to you about anything that will improve outcomes for your child. Please see Miss Lyall in the office to make a mutually convenient appointment, or catch me on the playground first thing in the morning!

"This is a good school. It has outstanding strengths in the care, guidance and support it provides for all pupils.

Every adult has the best interests of the children in the forefront of their thinking and actions. No stone is left unturned, or avenue not explored, in the school's relentless quest to ensure that every pupil is able to access and benefit from all that the school and it's partners have to offer"

"Writing is a journey of discovery because until you start, you never know what will happen, and you can be surprised by what you do - expect the unexpected!" Mini Grey

Key information


Children whose fifth birthday falls on or after the 1st September are admitted into the Reception year in the main school from the start of the Autumn Term.

During the first half term an induction programme is planned which enables children to feel secure, confident and able to adapt to the longer school day.


Where places permit, children may be admitted to the Nursery at the start of the term following the child’s 3rd birthday and will be offered a morning or afternoon place taking parental preference into consideration when possible.

Parents of children starting Nursery and Reception classes are invited to a welcome meetings which gives them the opportunity to meet the Head Teacher, Staff, Governors and Home School Association members and find out more about their child’s first few months at school. 

You can find more information on our Admissionspage.
