Principal's Welcome


At Eyrescroft we believe every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. This ethos is embedded in all we do to ensure your children enjoy coming to school where they are supported in achieving academically whilst developing as confident, thoughtful and resilient members of the community. We are committed to raising attainment in English and Maths and our curriculum reflects this. We hope these skills stay with our children for the next step in their learning journey.

This year, we continue to focus on improving outcomes for children whilst ensuring they have access to a purposeful learning experience where acquisition of knowledge and skills are at the heart. We aim to achieve this by developing; the quality of learning in each classroom and leadership at all levels. 

The focus on key skills in English and Maths are a priority as so many of our children lack the wide vocabulary development, understanding and spoken articulation and to enable the secure development of early oracy, english and maths. Many lack experience and exposure to the English language. This is not an indicator of learning potential but merely a barrier to overcome. The focus on speaking, listening, early reading, writing and maths is paramount in allowing effective access to the broader curriculum as these skills develop. We have continued support from the Elliot Foundation Academy Trust and local partners in supporting Eyrescroft to improve standards and outcomes for our children.

We are delighted to welcome you to our school and will happily answer any questions you may have.

Miss Sophie Dines
