International Women’s Day

At Eastfield we offer every child the opportunity to achieve the highest academic standards through our values led curriculum that both supports and challenges all of our pupils. Our school is an inclusive school. The key message is that we are all equal, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, culture or need. This message is echoed in the practice and in the behaviours of adults and children alike. Yesterday, I was invited to take part in a celebration of women leaders at the Department of Education (DfE) yesterday. Here women spoke of their achievements, their successes and the people who have helped to shape their lives.

We believe it is crucial to empower young people to take control of their future. By building the right culture and environment, we can help ensure that our children can truly flourish and develop into adults that wish to have a positive impact on their local, national and international communities.

I once again shared these messages of equality with the children in my assembly today and we celebrated our successes, our achievements and looked at areas we feel we now need to develop as a school.

Miss Wenlock and Miss Hardy have been busy leading our theme this week of Kindness. Every year group has illustrated many ways that they have been kind; there were many spontaneous acts of kindness shared over the past weeks. From Nursery right the way through to Year 6 the children have once again excelled. Have a look on our school Twitter page @Esatfield_EN3 for some examples.


Mr Heard was pleasantly surprised with his Thank you cards from reception.

Year 3 and 4 working collaboratively showing daily kindness!

Our Lolli Pop Lady was thrilled wth her card too and the children sang a special song to her!

Year 5 had a great time learning about rivers this week when they visited the River Lee. They all came back thrilled with the knowledge they had acquired.

Whilst on their river walk, pupils noticed a great deal of rubbish just thrown into the River Lee. They were extremely disappointed so have turned their disappointment into a persuasive letter…have a look below:

Mrs Judd, our lovely Joan, invited members of ENGIE UK back to our school today. It was time to find out who the winners of the poster competition were. The children were overwhelmed with the prizes. Thank you ENGIE UK!

 All that is left is to wish all or Mums a very Happy Mothers Day!
