Laurels Update

Today, we have had said farewell to our year 6 classes of 2023. The children celebrated their time at Brookfield in a special leavers’ assembly, received books, sung and performed on the West African drums. Thanks to all the parents of children in this cohort who have supported the school and community in so many ways. We wish the children the very best as they take this next step in their education and ask that they come back to tell us the achievements beyond Brookfield!

At this time of year, we also say goodbye to staff. Thanks to Bianca, who is moving out of London, and Sophie, who embarks on teacher training, who have supported children particularly in years 2 and 4. Our Nursery teacher Charlotte is leaving Brookfield to become a SEND and EYFS adviser for Camden while our year 2 teacher, Amy, and Assistant Head, SENDCo, Laura will both be joining the staff at Robson House Pupil Referral Unit. We wish them every success in their new roles.

In September, as well as welcoming new children, we will be joined by Simon (Deputy Head), James, Alla and Anna (Class Teachers), Kerry, Oksana and Amarilda (Learning Support Assistants).

Over the summer we look forward to work on the Forest School Garden beginning. If you are able to come and lend a hand over the Summer break with planting, greenhouse building and pond installation, please read below and get in touch with Rob.

Thank you for all your support this year as we have worked together to ‘inspire the best in everyone’. I hope you and your families have wonderful summer breaks and we will look forward to welcoming children in years 1-6 back to school on Wednesday 6th September at 8.45am for Y2 and 6, 8.50am for Y1 and 5, 8.55am for Y4 and 9am for Y3.
