Welcome to the Brook

Spring is definitely on its way at the Brook and daffodils are starting to peep through the lawns at the front of the school. 

Our pupils are working really hard in all of their lessons and it is pleasing to see that they are all making small but steady steps in progress.  Some of our pupils are rehearsing to take part in a Haringey Music Festival during the evening of 1st April and they are creating their own songs to sing.  Other pupils are working with the Haringey charity MyAFK in our exciting new World of Work programme where they get the opportunity to go behind the scenes in various establishments to learn the variety of jobs that are available to them in future. We are also delighted that we are now able to take our children on educational visits further afield to support their learning in the classroom.

Thank you for all of your support with our initiatives to keep the school functioning appropriately during the COVID pandemic.  We are very, very proud that we have never closed the school as it is testament to our staff’s commitment to our pupils and families and our families’ commitment to their children’s wellbeing and education that this has been possible.  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.  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

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.


Congratulations to our staff and pupils on receiving the European Quality Mark for our Oceans SOS project.  This is a prestigious award and we have been chosen from  hundreds of nominations across Europe. Oceans SOS Project
