Vision and Values
At Brookside Primary we aim to nurture happy, thoughtful children who grow up to make a difference in the world in which they live.
We provide an atmosphere which enables our children to acquire a wide range of knowledge, skills and practical abilities. Whatever your child's ability, we shall meet their needs. We strive for excellence in all we do. Our school ethos is built around the 6 R’s of:
Respectful Responsible Reflective Resourceful Rational Resilient
These R’s are used as a cornerstone in how we deal with all situations at our school and how we reward our children. We believe that by demonstrating the R’s every day, children will become positive members of their school and local community.
At Brookside, we are committed to providing high quality education for all of our learners, ensuring that every member of the school community is valued and respected, always being treated in a manner that is appropriate and just. We therefore aim to be a caring community where everyone is safe and secure. Good behaviour is a necessary condition before effective learning can take place. With that said, this does not mean a rigid or punitive system designed to enforce a particular set of rules. At Brookside, our priority is to promote positive relationships so that everyone can work productively together, sharing a common sense of purpose; each achieving the very best they can. Brookside rewards good behaviour, recognises success and regularly celebrates children’s achievement. We use praise to encourage good behaviour with the firm conviction that every child can become self-aware, independent and confident, both academically and socially.
At Brookside Primary, we wish to promote positive attitudes in the children and amongst all other stakeholders. With this in mind, we seek to fulfil our commitment to you, unimpeded by expectations that would otherwise limit the progress of your child at school.
