Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Brookfields as its Headteacher. I have worked at the school for 30 years in a range of capacities but latterly for 8 years as Deputy Head. I am passionate about facilitating the best outcomes for each child who comes to the school in preparation for their life after Brookfields.

All pupils at the school are offered a broad, balanced, stimulating and relevant curriculum regardless of their background, culture or ability. Each pupil is valued for who they are and what they bring to the school. We appreciate and celebrate the richness of diversity within the school community as well as the wider community. Through the work we do across the school on developing emotional self-regulation and the core values, we actively promote the importance of tolerance, co-operation, courage, determination, friendship and respect. Through this approach, pupils develop independence, confidence and integrity which prepares them for their future lives.

My motto is “Make today count” and I aim every day, to promote the development of a culture of engagement, challenge and curiosity, within a curriculum in which learning, independence, effective communication and the subsequent application of knowledge and skills learnt, is prioritised.

I hope you find this, our new website, useful as an introduction to the amazing work taking place at Brookfields School each and every day.
