Eastcote Primary Academy is a place where children feel happy, safe and secure. It is a nurturing and friendly environment, filled with pupils who respect and care for each other. Learners celebrate their differences and understand that it is good to have differing viewpoints. They are aware of the world and have a sense of their role within it.
At Eastcote we work together with parents and the wider community to support, challenge and inspire children through a creative and engaging curriculum. Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility and ownership of their learning, empowering them to become independent inquirers. As a result, children are curious and excited about learning and develop a love of it. They leave ready to embrace life confidently, and flourish in our diverse world as caring internationally minded citizens.
Our core values are Aspire, Learn, Laugh, Love.
Aspire – to be the best people we can be and to do the best we can,
Learn – both intellectually and morally,
Laugh – as often as possible- everyday!
Love – one another as a community.
