Welcome to Eastfield Infants' and Nursery School
Another school year is finishing and what a year it has been. The children have worked hard, as always, and have made great progress towards their targets. Ofsted have been and have validated that this is a good school with outstanding features. We should all be very proud of what good work we all do here together!
Thank you for all your hard work, kind words, support and dedication over the last year. Your children’s learning, well-being and happiness are of paramount importance to us here and we have enjoyed working with you all.
Next year we will be focusing on writing and encouraging the older children to write at greater length. We will encourage you to ensure that your children are in school every day and that they arrive on time and ready for school. We will also be telling you about activities, pop-in sessions and workshops that if you are able to you could attend to encourage and support your little ones.
Have a very happy summer break, stay safe and return on Thursday September 3rd.
Good luck to Year 2 children as you start as Year 3 at Lacey Gardens. Keep working hard, keep smiling and be as wonderful as you have been at Eastfield!
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!
"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"

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.
