Brookhurst Primary School
A place to think and grow

Our ambition

Brookhurst aims to be a caring, welcoming, stable and friendly school community. We will provide the best possible environment for children to learn and develop, as well as to cultivate a sense of wonder, empathy and understanding of the world around them. Together, we will strive to bring the best out of our children, ensuring that they maximise their potential and are prepared as fully as possible for the next stage of their lives.

How we put our ambition into practice

We will…

… bring the best out of our children by:

  1. involving them in their own learning
  2. helping them fulfil their academic potential
  3. ensuring they know what they can do and what they need to learn next
  4. using different styles of teaching to ensure learning is always interesting, engaging and fun
  5. listening to the children and responding flexibly so those of different abilities can all work at an appropriate pace and to their potential
  6. encouraging the children to ask questions
  7. helping the children to understand and adopt a healthy, physically active and environmentally friendly lifestyle

… ensure our children have a fulfilling time at Brookhurst by:

  1. making sure they are happy and safe
  2. nurturing their self esteem and confidence
  3. teaching them the importance of respecting and valuing other people and their environment including good behaviour and politeness
  4. seizing opportunities beyond the national curriculum to enhance our children’s development
  5. showing them how full of wonder and variety the world is, through activities that stimulate their interest in the world around them – locally and globally

… prepare our children as fully as possible for the next stage of their lives so that, when they leave us, they:

  1. have reached their academic and all-round potential
  2. are eager to keep on learning
  3. are inquisitive about their world
  4. are confident in their relations with other people
  5. are willing and able to make a positive contribution
  6. have a strong sense of responsibility

Sharing our ambition

We will pursue this ambition in partnership with parents and all the other people and organisations that help support and protect our children.
