Welcome to Brockwell Nursery & Infant School

A very warm welcome to Brockwell Nursery and Infant School. We look forward to working with you and your child as they take their first steps from home into the wider world. The children are at the centre of all we do and we will work with you to make sure your child does the very best they can, in every aspect of their school life.

We acknowledge that it is essential that school and home work together as partners. We believe that children only get one chance at education, and that together we can make it the best it can be. We hope that by sending your child to our school, you will support us in all areas of their education socially, emotionally and academically.

Please see our Home School Agreement.

At Brockwell Nursery and Infant School we use our creative curriculum to actively promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, develop mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. In doing so, we aim for our children to become rounded and valued members of society who treat others with respect.

                                                         Our Vision                                                          All children deserve the best. It is our responsibility to give the children we are entrusted with, the best possible start to their education. We build self-esteem and resilience, confidence and independence in all. Children will be able to think for themselves and consider consequences of their actions. We nurture a common respect for all and our environment. As adults, we set the example for children to follow. We care for one another and create a happy and nurturing environment in which ALL want to share and participate in working towards a common goal - 'to be the best we can be' in every aspect of our lives. By creating this, we will enable all to rise to the challenges faced now and in the future.
