Laurel’s Update

Thank you to the parents and carers who have commented on our positive OFSTED  report which is available here

Positives included:

“Parents and carers are very positive about the school. They shared how the school feels like a family, with pupils at the heart of the school’s work.”

“Staff have high expectations of pupils’ learning. Leaders have designed a broad and balanced curriculum, which helps pupils to build a deep knowledge over time, including in early years.”

“Across the school, pupils behave well and enjoy their learning.”

“Pupils with SEND are supported well to meet ambitious curriculum goals.”

“Pupils have many opportunities to develop their talents and interests… Pupils enjoy exploring during outdoor learning activities.”

Tomorrow, we have a Community Day from 11am – 3pm. We look forward to seeing you and your family for tree planting, gardening and improving the school environment. Next Friday you are warmly invited to our Forest School Garden celebration when the Mayor will be officially opening this amazing space with poetic and musical celebration!

Julia, our devoted Music Teacher for over 19 years, has accepted a new position at a school closer to her home. We will be celebrating Julia’s dedicated service to Brookfield before she leaves at Christmas. In the meantime, we are now looking for a new Music Teacher to start at Brookfield in January 2024. Please share this advert far and wide! There is also an opportunity for a part time Learning Support Assistant role in our Nursery promoted on our vacancies page.
