“Eastfield Primary School are immensely proud to have been awarded the Kitemark Plus. Our curriculum is bespoke to our pupils and it aims to build on what has previously been taught and learned to ensure that academic achievement, physical and mental well-being, growth of character and personal development are intrinsically linked for the purpose of equipping our pupils with firm foundations of the requisite knowledge, skill and strength of character needed to be successful in life. Our ‘SMART Values’ are set out to drive the curriculum and provide all stakeholders with explicit understanding of the school’s vision in securing quality of education for all pupils. The HCAT signature and its five strategic pillars, underpin the core values for all stakeholders in our community and our SMART values harness all the core values for pupils. We are really pleased to have our dedication to character education recognised and look forward to working with the Association for Character in the future. ”
