Welcome to Eastfield Infants' and Nursery School

"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"

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”  George Martin ― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Our Website

We hope you find our website useful. We have lots of information about the school and updates on what our children have been doing. If there is something you would like us to include, then please let us know.

Message from our Headteacher, Mrs Akhurst

It 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!

Hot School Meals

You may have noticed in the press recently that the Government pledge to provide a hot, tasty meal at lunchtime for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 from September 2014.

We are very excited about this. It will mean no more remembering to make pack-up and wondering what to put in the lunch-box!  What’s more the meals will be absolutely free for everyone. On cold days children will have a warming satisfying lunch to warm them up.

Our Year of Reading 2014

This year we are having a big focus on books and reading throughout the school. We will be inviting you to join in with a range of reading events and we have already enlisted two parent volunteers to promote our school library.

Events will be listed on the calendar page, in the new reading section of this website and on our weekly newsletters.

Please get involved  and if you have any ideas that promote a love of books and reading let us know


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 Admissions page.
