All about our school

Our Vision statement

At Eastling School we want to

ü     Develop self-value, confidence and ability in every individual;

ü     Offer a range of choices, experiences and opportunities guided by individual need;

ü     Make the school experience a positive, enjoyable and proactive one for pupils and parents.

We aim to accomplish this through:

ü     Structured introduction to areas within and beyond the National Curriculum, seeking to continually improve standards of teaching, learning and performance;

ü     Developing an invigorating, exciting and stimulating environment which encourages children to investigate and extend their learning’s breadth, depth and balance;

ü     Upholding core values of honesty, integrity, tolerance and perseverance.


We operate a ‘Rising Fives Policy’; that is a child may begin school one or two terms before their fifth birthday. Our standard intake number is set at 15 for new admissions.

 We would love to welcome your child to Eastling Primary School and invite you to make an appointment to visit us with them (preferably in school hours so you can meet and talk with our best sales force – the children here!). 

In January or February before the academic year in which your child begins school, you may pick up a common application form (CAF) on which you can say which school you’d like your child to attend in first,second and third choice.  On a common date for the LEA, the highest ranked school with places will make a formal offer of a place. Schools do not know the order in which they are placed on your form (not that it would make a difference to su!)

In the case of over subscription at Eastling School the following criteria are used:-

ü      Parental wishes

ü      Current family association (an elder brother or sister in the school at the time of entry

ü      Health reasons (for which a medical certificate may be required)

ü      Nearness of children’s homes and ease of access to school

If the school is oversubscribed children are allocated places strictly on the basis outlined above. This means that we often have to allocate places to children who live closer to the school but who have already gained places in other establishments. In these cases, once the parents concerned have confirmed their intention not to use their place, it becomes available to the next children on our list.

One Year we used Admissions Criteria to select 14 children from 23 applications but after the system had ‘settled out’ had three places spare!

At Eastling we have a flexible policy for entry to fit in with your wishes and your child’s needs. This means that children who are “ready” may start school full time earlier in the year or indeed, wait until they are ready later. We also have an extended period of welcome (or induction) to the school to make children feel welcome and settled when they start. This year's induction program is here.

All children should be full-time from the Summer Term of their Reception year.
