Eastburn Junior and Infant School is a one-form entry primary school that sits at the edge of the Bradford Local Authority district close to the border with North Yorkshire (Skipton). The school has a current roll of 210 pupils, drawn largely from Eastburn and the surrounding villages.

The School was established in 1896 and we value greatly its strong community identity and heritage. Our journey over the last two years has reinforced the importance of sustaining strong links with families throughout our community, and in proactively seeking parental / carer involvement and feedback. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic, we believe that the School has succeeded in deepening its community contribution over the last two years. We fully intend to build on this going forward.

At Eastburn, the idea of “life-long learning” sits at the heart of our approach to education. We believe it is essential that all pupils build the knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviours and personal confidence to help them succeed at whatever they do, now and in the long-term. We are committed to giving all of our pupils the help and support they need to fulfil their potential.

We take it as read that our broad curriculum fully integrates stretching academic expectations with effective spiritual, social and cultural development priorities. Our strong inclusion approach means that we can address individual learning needs, thereby allowing all pupils to grow and thrive. We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and fully recognise that pupils learn best when they feel safe.

We listen carefully to feedback from all our stakeholders: pupils, parents/carers, the Local Authority, colleagues. We are very proud of the fact that those who visit us routinely say that School is warm and welcoming and that pupils are engaged and enthusiastic. We hope you’ll feel the same when you meet us.

Our Vision

At Eastburn Junior and Infant School, we create a culture in which every child is nurtured to become a powerful life-long learner. Our pupils develop resilience, seize opportunities and enjoy new challenges in order to achieve their full potential.

In creating our vision, we have worked alongside staff, governors, parents and children to create a statement that we think reflects our aims for the school. We return to this vision regularly to ensure that it underpins everything we do in school and reflects what we want to achieve for our pupils.
Our school is a proud believer in 'Building Learning Power' and uses this approach to support our pupils to become independent learners who show high levels of resilience in the face of challenge. We work hard to provide our pupils with a strong foundation, so that they are able to tackle the next stage in their education with confidence.
