Welcome to our school

At our excellent school we celebrate your child. We support them to care for others while valuing themselves. Here your child will develop their strengths, know their next steps in learning and achieve their goals. We teach all children to keep safe, be independent, make decisions and help each child to recognise the impact of their choice on others. We never lose sight of the knowledge and skills your child needs if they are to grow up to being a unique, reliable and thriving adult within a wide community.

*In 2011 East-the-Water was recognised as one of top 50 schools nationally for sustained improvement

Little Skippers

Welcome to the Little Skippers foundation stage unit.

We believe that all children are eager and able to learn. Every child should have the best possible start in life and the support they need to fulfil their potential. A secure and happy childhood is important in its own right and provides the foundation for all children to independently explore and develop within stimulating experiences and healthy relationships.

At the core of our Foundation Stage Unit is quality education and care for our families. Children from 2 years old to 5 years old are cared for in our foundation stage unit. Our two year old provision, Little Tiddlers is integrated into our main unit, Little Skippers for three to five year olds. We believe that early childhood should be secure, safe and happy. We provide a nurturing environment which offers excellent care and education for our families. 

Free childcare places start the term after your child's second birthday, so don't miss out, find out if you are eligible today. Visit or call 0345 155 1013 for further information.


London Residential


The Year 6s had an amazing time in London exploring all the sights and museums. On the first day, we visited Buckingham Palace, which we travelled to by tube from the youth hostel. The children loved seeing the palace and trying to spot the royal family! On day 2, we visited the natural history museum, where we learnt about everything from dinosaurs to how our planet was created. We then went to the science museum where we got to try out lots of different experiments and learnt about forces, how light travels, how static is created and much more. After a busy day at the museums we went to see Wicked at the theatre; this was an amazing show and we were still singing all the songs the next day. On our last day in London, we went around the London eye where we could see all the famous landmarks in London. It was a brilliant trip !
