Eton Park is a purpose-built academy for students between the ages of 7 and 11 and was opened in October 1991. We have a very generous site which includes playing fields, a hard surface playground, a trim trail, ICT theatre, gardens and a nature conservation area.
As from 1 May 2016 we became a proud member of The de Ferrers Trust.
Our core moral purpose is encapsulated in the vision statement for the academy:
Learning to Love Learning!
Our focus is on learning, not just within and across subject areas, but also the personal development of all learners who attend our academy. We strive to inspire all learners to go beyond what they consider possible for themselves, to experience and try new things and to realise all aspects of their potential. There are no glass ceilings put on any of our learners; we wish to ignite a passion for learning and for life that will remain with them as they move on to their next phase of their learning journey.
At Eton Park Junior; A de Ferrers Trust Academy we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in line with the Equality Act of October 2010 for all members of the academy community. This commitment applies to our work in the classroom, our pupil support systems, our recruitment and retention of staff and our work in the local and wider community.
We believe that equality should permeate all aspects of academy life and is the responsibility if every member of the academy and wider community. Every member of the academy should feel safe, secure, valued and of equal worth. Through our work in the classroom we will ensure that pupils understand the importance of equality and what forms discrimination can take and the impact discrimination can have. We will also seek to foster within our pupils their own commitment to promoting equality. Where pupils experience barriers to their success we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and sympathetic way. As a school we will ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve the very best that they are capable of and we will also guide parents on how they can support their child's achievement. At Eton Park we believe that equality is a key principle for treating people the same, irrespective of their:
