We strive to engage our children, add spark and energy to their lessons and promote a strong sense of self worth.
Parents can find out more about our curriculum by talking to their child's class teacher.
In line with most schools, we work from and develop the National Curriculum to meet our children's needs. In doing this we place a high emphasis on basic skills and our children achieve well. We aim to produce well-rounded children who can play a positive part as tomorrow's citizens. We actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for others, such as those with different faiths and beliefs.
We also work tirelessly to create an enriched curriculum for our children, injecting varied and rich learning experiences. Every term each class has at least one first-hand learning experience; they might go on a visit or we may invite a visitor into school. We also have themed events each term, for example: 'Take One Picture' which encourages our children to develop their creative skills.
Based on the the National Trust list of '50 things to do before you are 11' our school community created their own list of experiences that our children wanted to enjoy during their time at Brooklands, ranging from swinging on a rope swing to visiting London.
Here at Brooklands we positively encourage our children to try new things. Trying new things often requires courage and forces us to grow and develop. Entire careers and life paths are carved out by us dipping our toes into small ponds of new experience and discovering a love for something we had no idea would capture our imaginations and passion. All our children have opportunities to try new things from nature photography to abseiling, learning the clarinet to playing Tchoukball.
