At Eastwood, we recognise that the personal development of our pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
We therefore aim to provide an education that provides children with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.
All adults will model and promote expected behaviour, treating all people as valuable individuals and showing respect for pupils and their families.
Children are taught to differentiate between right and wrong, in as far as their actions affect other people, and they are encouraged to value themselves and others.
Children are taught to understand their rights and responsibilities and the need to respect the rights of others.
The Academy's expectations, enshrined within its ethos and vision, promote responsible behaviour.

‘Your curriculum makes a very positive contribution to students’ behaviour and safety. Citizenship and religious education (RE) lessons are treated seriously as they lead to a GCSE qualification. These subjects help students understand one another, consider moral issues and play an important role in supporting students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding and development together with an appreciation of different cultures, democracy and the rule of law’. (Ofsted 2015).
