Every Eastbury Student Matters
Each year group has a team of tutors, led by the Year Curriculum Co-ordinator, who are your first point of contact between the home and school.
Daily contact with the tutor promotes the personal development and well-being of all students. We also have on-site health and parent support advisors and work with outside agencies to ensure that every student reaches their potential academically, emotionally and socially.
We encourage students and staff to lead healthy lifestyles which promote good physical, mental and emotional health. A full programme of Sex and Health Education has been developed in which we aim to be sensitive to individuals and respect the variety of family, cultural and religious backgrounds.
We teach students how to keep safe and to be responsible through our lessons, assemblies and polices on anti- bullying, anti-racism and health and safety.
Enjoy and Achieve:
We encourage all students to achieve their personal best and we therefore set them realistic but challenging targets. We recognise the link between good attendance and success, and work in partnership with parents and students to encourage excellent attendance and punctuality. We endeavour never to give up on any child, nor
to have any child left behind.
Make a Positive Contribution:
We develop students’ self-confidence and show them how to engage in positive behaviours in and out of school. We recognise the importance of the spiritual and moral development of our students. Our Religious Education lessons develop an understanding of all major faith traditions.
The school follows an agreed syllabus drawn up with local advisors, inspectors and leaders of the different faiths in the community.
Our hugely successful School Council meets regularly to discuss issues with students and to inform them of recent changes they have instigated within the school. Our students enjoy participating in a wide variety of charity events supporting both local and international communities.
A structured programme of careers education and guidance teaches the importance of planning for their future from Year 7 and prepares students for the world of employment. In Years 9, 11 and 13 students are given specific careers advice to prepare them for the next stage of their life. During Year 10 students undertake a work experience placement for two weeks which enables them to appreciate more fully the skills and qualifications needed in the workplace.
Right of Withdrawal:
Detailed information on Sex Education, Religious Education and Corporate Acts of Worship is available on request. Parents are entitled to withdraw their child, and those who wish to do so are asked to liaise with the Year Curriculum Co-ordinator so that alternative arrangements can be made.
