Head Teacher Welcome
Welcome to Eastling Primary School. We are a rural primary school (4-11) situated in the beautiful village of Eastling, just outside Faversham. It is set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the slope of the North Downs. The school is central to the village and serves the wider communities of Newnham, Doddington, Stalisfield, Painters Forstal and Lenham. Many families also choose to travel from Faversham to our wonderful school.
At Eastling, every child is encouraged to discover and nurture his and her special gifts and talents through a stimulating curriculum, which goes beyond the basic national curriculum requirements. We are dedicated to achieving success and happiness for all our pupils.
We have a dynamic team of teachers and support staff who act as exemplary role models, educating and nurturing each child, enabling them to achieve high standards of academic attainment whilst also enabling them to become capable, caring and confident human beings.
Alongside our hardworking, dedicated and highly trained staff is a whole community of parents and carers drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, each contributing to our learning environment and the school's wonderful and creative ethos.
Eastling Primary School has the advantage of being set in beautiful grounds with a wonderful playing field for children to enjoy not just during break times and PE lessons but also for the benefit of the whole curriculum. We take great pride in our learning environment and use it as a tool for inspiring learning as well as celebrating achievement. Our children benefit from an extensive range of exciting and unique school trips using our two school minibuses.
Finally, we promote a family and team work ethic, which is embedded in the ethos of our school. Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. When your child starts school, it is not where your job ends and ours begins; it is where we begin our learning journey together.
