Our School Vision

A Melrose Learning Trust School

‘Through God’s love, we are the rich soil where roots grow and seeds flourish.’ Luke 8:4-15


Welcome to our unique school set in the heart of the picturesque village of Easington.

We are extremely proud to be a Church School with a vision that, for all of our wonderful children ‘May we give them the roots to grow and the wings to fly.’

We view our school as the rich soil in which strong roots are formed so that all of our children can flourish. This means that through excellent teaching and our School Christian Values of Friendship, Forgiveness, Hope, Thankfulness and Trust, we will provide children with the foundation to enable them to be Happy, Healthy and Fulfilled. If you would like to learn more about our School Values, please click on the link to the right.

Through these foundations, children will have the wings to fly by developing the confidence and independence to:

· Enjoy life to the full and make every opportunity count.

· Feel prepared for their next step on their journey through life.

· Be aware of their own talents and use them wisely.

· Show resilience and strength in times of challenge.

· Have the confidence to share their own opinions.

· Be proud of their local heritage and the community in which they live.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which evolves from the National Curriculum. We use pupils’ interests and our locality as starting points for learning throughout school. Our close-knit community has a proud mining history, which is celebrated and remembered in school. Children are educated about their local heritage, as well as the diversities of modern society.

We believe that learning is most productive when children are aware of what they are learning, why they are learning it and how they will be successful. The essential skills and knowledge of English and Maths are firmly embedded in daily practice. Children are given regular opportunities to apply those skills through problem solving, independent research and teamwork challenges. We nurture our pupils to develop resilience and the strength of character to be successful in their goals and to grow into happy, healthy and fulfilled individuals.
