Welcome to Brookfield Infants!

Welcome to Brookfield Infant School!

 

Our vision statement

At this school we want to lay the foundations to promote lifelong learning.   We expect that our pupils will learn self-respect and respect for others;  resilience in dealing with life’s challenges and accept responsibilities for their own actions.

Our pupils will be encouraged to actively participate in their own learning and collectively celebrate and recognise their achievements as well as successes of their peers.
We are committed to constantly seek new ways to improve the quality of learning for our pupils. Our policy provides guidance and support to all staff and volunteers, so that they can reflect upon their own practice and ensure every pupil is able to access the best learning opportunities in order to achieve their full potential and contribute positively to our school community.

All about our school

We don't have a School Prospectus as our website is full of information about our school. We always encourage parents and carers to come and visit our school so you can get to know us and more importantly get a feel for our school! Here you can ask any other questions you may have.

New parent walkabout dates for new foundation stage parents can be found in our calendar as soon as they are arranged (under 'Parents' on the home page).

Other new parents for school age children should contact the school office to arrange a visit (for contact details please see click on 'About Us' on the homepage).

 

Before you leave please visit our FLO page which you will find a link to at the bottom of this page.

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on!

Brookfield Infant School is situated in a pleasant, one storey building set back from the road in extensive grounds which are partly shared with our junior school and one other local school. 

There are approximately 180 children on roll, aged 4-7, organised into 6 classes.

The school has:

~ A library area for supporting children's reading and love of books.

~ A family room used for adult literacy and numeracy groups, toddlers etc.

~ A large hall used for assemblies, productions, P.E which also acts as a dining hall.

~ There is an ICT suite equipped with computers, TV and whiteboard.

~ We also have a reading recovery room where children are taken for reading interventions.

~ Each Classroom has an interactive whiteboard to enhance teaching and learning along with bright, engaging displays to encourage a positive learning environment.


Throughout its life, the school has benefited from having a dedicated, enthusiastic and approachable staff, supported by an active governing body. Parents are involved in the life of the School through FOBS and in the classrooms. 

 

We operate an 'Open Door' policy. Parents are warmly welcomed into school. If you wish to see Mrs Woods, our Head teacher, an appointment is helpful but not always essential.

Do feel free to come and discuss any issues, or concerns, as however small they may seem to you, it is always helpful if we know which could be beneficial to your child's learning. The teaching staff are also available after school, but again, if you feel you may need more than five minutes it is a good idea to make an appointment.

 

At the start of the school day children are allowed onto the playground before school commences, but they remain the responsibility of the parents until the children are admitted by a member of staff at 8. 50am.

At least one member of teaching staff will be around on each playground at the beginning of the day. If it is raining, we advise that the children not arrive before 8.45am, as currently we only have 1 gazebo at the front of the school in which to take shelter.  On occasions where rain is heavy, and the teachers are prepared for the school day, we shall endeavour to let the children come into the classrooms earlier. Once the classroom doors are shut please take your child round to the school office. This is for the safety of your children.

 

Our school library is also open for parent/ child reading everyday from 8.35am. Please come in and share a book!

 

At the end of the school day parents are welcome to wait on the playground for their children to finish at 3:10pm. We ask that parents wait outside of the year group fenced area. This is for the children’s safety and to make sure any learning resources in these areas are untouched by tiny toddler hands! Thank you!

 

Newsletters are available on our website and are also regularly sent home  to keep parents informed about school issues, events and dates. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further details.

 

We are always happy to have new parent helpers in our school! If you are interested in helping out please speak to your class teacher. Here are some things that we are always keen to have help with:

  • cooking with children in small groups
  • reading with children
  • sewing or 1:1 art and craft activities
  • in class support
  • help with messy art afternoons
  • areas that you are interested in.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to leave comments in the Guest book, or contact the school direct with any queries you may have.


Thank you for visiting!
