At Eastry Church of England Primary School, we strive to meet the needs of all our pupils by providing a meaningful, engaging, broad and balanced curriculum.
We want all pupils to be able to reach their individual potential and build upon their strengths and interests, helping them to understand that we believe they can achieve and flourish in their education, thus encouraging their future aspirations as well learning and developing essential life skills to enable them to be successful individuals.
We use the National Curriculum that is statutory for state schools and we plan inspiring and exciting topics to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of all subjects across the school. Our aim is to ensure cross curricular opportunities and experiences to spark exciting and creative learning that will encompass the Foundation subjects, alongside the all-important English, Maths, RE and Science.
We promote positive emotional health and well-being to help children develop social and emotional skills throughout all subjects and also through PSHE sessions. As a church school, we support children’s spiritual needs in our caring Christian environment that promotes our school ethos and values of joy, welcoming, compassion, respect and perseverance. In our school we live out these values alongside the British Values to enable our pupils to make informed choices and become respectful individuals.
Individual subject areas have been planned by the teachers and Subject Leaders. These are open to interpretation by the teachers, and topics may change depending upon world events and relevance to the children. Within this we find ways to maximise and enrich our learning opportunities by making use of our locality and our outdoor learning space.
