Vision, Values and Aims

Childhood experiences shape who we become as adults: children deserve the best and come first. Positive, fun learning experiences develop self-esteem, confidence and independence. Being the best that we can be, we want ALL our children to develop a love of learning that will equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary for an ever changing and exciting future.

One common goal underpins all we do…‘To Work Together to… be SAFE, SMILE & SUCCEED’


In partnership with parents, the whole school will deliver excellence at all levels with a clear mission to be Safe, Smile & Succeed.

  • A Warm Welcome

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    Excellent schooling isn’t just about our high professional standards and academic achievement. It’s also about enjoying learning and looking forward to the school day ahead. Children come first at Brockwell. Working together with parents as our partners, we aim to meet the needs of all children. Our success is built on a climate of positive discipline and respect, whereby the well-being of each child is at the heart of everything the school achieves.

    I extend a warm welcome and invite you to visit us. Come and experience the caring, fantastic atmosphere in our school and see that smiles, warmth and a love of learning are the norm and not the exception.

    I hope the information in our brochure and on our website is useful. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

    Best wishes,

    Catherine Holmes
