Brockworth Primary Academy was created by the amalgamation of Brockworth Infant and Junior Schools in September 1993. Staff, parents, governors, children and the community have all been involved in establishing a school with some of the best facilities in the county.
At Brockworth Primary Academy, we aim to create a happy, secure and caring environment, a place children will enjoy coming to, where everyone within our academy and local community are valued. Here, children will be encouraged to develop independence, a sense of purpose and an enthusiasm for learning. We believe that education is a partnership between home and the academy, and we will work with you to build on the things your child already knows.
Please feel free to visit our academy to find out more about what your child is doing and the progress they are making. There will be several parents' evenings and plenty of opportunities for informal contact. There will be other occasions when you can join us, for concerts, fetes, curriculum events, assemblies and other activities that make up academy life. The closer the contact between home and the academy, then the greater the opportunity for understanding and mutual support.
At Brockworth Primary Academy, we aim to:
Education is a life long process. Through supporting individual strengths we help children gain self-confidence based on respect for themselves, others and the environment.
Education is a partnership between home and the academy and we are committed to helping you become actively involved in your children’s education.
Education has a moral and spiritual dimension and this is one of the foundations of the academy. Through assemblies and the daily life of the academy, opportunities are taken to reflect on the lives of others. Children are taught and expected to behave with care and compassion towards each other and those in the wider world.
We believe education is an active process. You will find the children are engaged in lots of practical activities in all areas of the curriculum. Children take part in tasks which involve choice, independence, responsibility and decision making. We help them to think for themselves and to take account of the needs of others.
We believe that understanding is linked to practical experience and children engage in plenty of “hands on” activities. We have particularly good facilities and we make use of them including the grounds and surrounding environment. Children are taught to value their environment and take responsibility for it.
We believe in quality. We continue to provide the best surroundings, facilities and equipment. In return we expect work of quality from your children. We work to raise children’s standards and expectations of themselves.
Education is about learning to think and understand as well as acquiring vital skills in the core subjects of writing, reading, maths, science and computing. We attach particular importance to reading. This is particularly well resourced, encouraged, taught and supported above all else in the curriculum.
We have excellent facilities for computing (including a dedicated computer suite and Ipads in all classes), art, music and drama. We will help children gain their confidence through performance, as well as giving them opportunities to be involved in many different aspects of the arts. Education is about providing opportunities for children, we provide a wide range of experiences for children to see, explore and try. When children display a particular talent we encourage, support and extend it.
Children learn best when they are happy and feel safe. For this reason behaviour is an important aspect at our academy and all children are expected to behave in a reasonable and responsible way towards those around them. Above all, we want children to be happy at our academy, to enjoy each day they spend here and to look forward to what the next day may bring.
