Welcome to Eastbrook
This website will provide you with information about our school and give you an insight into the opportunities children have throughout their time with us.
Eastbrook is a two-form entry school, for children aged 4-11. It is situated on the south coast near Brighton, serving children from the Southwick and Fishersgate communities. The school benefits from wonderful facilities and extensive playfields, including an indoor swimming pool. There is also an active PTA (Parent Teacher Association) who work closely with the school to support key events and organise fundraisers throughout the year.
At Eastbrook our mission is to work together to create a school where:
‘Everyone Matters and Every Day Counts’
We ensure that every child is known and cared for as an individual from the moment they enter the school gates.
Our main aim at Eastbrook Primary Academy is to provide each pupil with the opportunity to become a life-long learner by nurturing pupils' individuality and creativity, guiding pupils' learning and challenging pupils to think independently through the shared involvement of staff, parents, and the wider community. Here are some of the comments from our supportive parents/carers:
There is a strong connection with school and home and the daily catch up sessions help our child feel connected to their teacher and friends.

This is what some more parents have to say about the school over time:
The videos are really engaging, home learning packs for resources are very helpful as we don't have a printer. Feedback is bespoke for our child always suggesting ways to challenge him or praising him.(Remote Learning Survey, February 2021)
Eastbrook's ability to branch out and be creative, within and outside the core curriculum, is one of the reasons I love it! Forest School is essential!

Very well-organised school. So pleased my children are lucky enough to attend! Also feel very comfortable coming to talk with members of staff with any concerns.
