‘Respect, Responsibility, Resilience’

‘Our new school opened in September 2021, it is an amazing purpose built modern school for the children of Eastfield. The school offers state of the art facilities, which will be a tremendous boost to children’s academic learning as well as enhancing the value of the local community where it sits.

If you want to work in a school with wonderful children, supportive leadership and staff colleagues in a role that will challenge, stretch and above be rewarding and fun then we want to hear from you!

Here at Overdale Community Primary School we are proud to be a leading school in the area, being the HUB school for Speech and Language supporting 24 schools along the East Coast. Together we have built a school that has the highest aspirations for our children to shine, built around the three r’s in our logo, and also one that supports and celebrates our amazing community that we are proud to serve.

Over the last five years our school has changed considerably. As a securely ‘good school’ our talented teachers and learning support colleagues have initiated a team approach alongside our fellow coastal primaries in many ways that include helping to drive rapid and sustained coastal school improvement, sharing best practice in the classroom and learning from the systems and processes we have put in place here.
