At Brookfield Primary School, we aim to capture and sustain young children’s interests and empower them to become motivated learners. We help them to take their first educational steps positively and to meet the wider world of education with confidence.
The Reception learning environment at Brookfield provides children with a safe and educationally challenging indoor and outdoor classroom. With tremendous outdoor and indoor facilities, including all-weather multi-purpose surfaces, a mud kitchen, raised beds and a forest school on site, children are given the best possible start in their education.
The progress that children make during their time in our Early Years setting is excellent. With a clear focus on language development, phonics and metacognition; our children are encouraged to make discoveries and thrive on new experiences.
