All parents see the education of their children as one of the most important parts of their lives and here, at Eskdale Academy, we feel exactly the same. At Eskdale Academy we aspire to have an educational community that: Ensures all learners are inspired and motivated to learn, improve and achieve success through opportunity, praise and choice. Build positive relationships through empathy, honesty, trust, respect and genuine care for each other. Promote a sense of security, ownership, pride and responsibility. Works together through positive community partnerships. We believe that our aims and values can be most effectively fulfilled through a close partnership between home and school and we hope that the website will give you an insight into our school community. We value our open, friendly environment. Eskdale Academy is a ‘Good’ school, of which we are all very proud. The staff and governors are a committed, enthusiastic team which is continually developing and improving the education we offer children. We welcome comments and ideas from pupils and parents/carers on all aspects of school life. We want every child’s time at our school to be happy, exciting and educational. We believe that learning should be fun and that by encouraging respect for each other and valuing the opportunities available, we all grow and learn together.
