Welcome to the Brook for our new school year

Children return after the summer holidays on Monday 6th September.

We hope that you have had an enjoyable summer – even if the weather was not particularly kind to us!  Our summer club was a lot of fun and we were so pleased to have the chance to say a final goodbye to those of our children who are moving on to secondary school.  We look forward to welcoming our new children into our Brook family too.

Next term will be much more ‘back to normal’ although we will continue to promote hand washing and ensure rigorous cleaning throughout – it will be wonderful for us to be able to share  more activities and learning opportunities with the Willow children as well as have more whole school gatherings such as assemblies again.

School starts again for our children on Monday 6th September at 9.00am – looking forward to seeing everyone then.


If your child is at home because he/she has COVID symptoms or is ill, then we will keep in contact with you but your child is not expected to complete any work as they are ill.  If they are isolating as a precaution, then a learning pack will be available to you with the Brook online videos supporting the learning.  A member of the class team will make contact with you at the beginning and end of the week to see how the learning is progressing and if there are other resources you require.  As always, you are welcome to touch base with us at any time during this isolation period and we will do whatever we can to assist


We will always let you know by text or email if there are any significant changes to your child’s routine or if the Government roadmap changes and we need to put other things in place.  We are very proud of the fact that we have been able to welcome so many children into school since March last  year and are grateful for the support that we have received from parents and carers as we have all worked together during these uncertain times to do the very best for our children.

It is clear that, gradually, we will be able to do more inclusive activities but we will ensure that your children’s wellbeing, safety and learning remain our top priority.

Please do make contact with your class team, a member of SLT or myself if you have any queries or concerns

Kind regards

Maureen Duncan

About Us

Our school is part of the Broadwaters Inclusive Learning Community which means that we share our values, vision, ethos and aspirations with the Willow Primary School and the Broadwaters Children’s Centre.   What’s more, we share a groundbreaking state of the art building.  Our inclusive approach means that pupils live together in an aspirational learning environment where every need is met.
Our pupils are aged 4 – 11 and have a range of needs such as Autism, severe and complex learning difficulties as well as associated physical, medical, and emotional needs.  This means that they need a safe, specialist environment to help them learn and reach their potential.
Laughter, excitement and enthusiasm are evident in all aspects of our school life.  Our emphasis on communication, creativity, physical and personal development means that our pupils develop into self-confident learners who are rightly proud of themselves and their achievements.  Our highly trained staff, working closely with specialist practitioners, are constantly striving to give our pupils the very best experience at school.  We aim to enable our pupils to move confidently onto the next stage of their lives.
