Our Learning Adventure

Meeting the needs of our community 

Our Curriculum is built around the 2014 National Curriculum Programmes of Study and EYFS Development Matters. At Brimsdown we create quality learning opportunities in order to broaden and challenge pupils’ knowledge, skills and attitudes. We strive to equip our children with a growth mindset and a reflective attitude so that they embrace challenge and view effort as the path to a successful future. We teach our pupils the importance of building meaningful relationships with their peers and teachers in order to develop essential communication skills to express themselves positively.

Our DRB (Deaf Resource Base) ensures our school is inclusive and our children are both self-aware and value each other’s differences. Our deaf children learn many lessons with their hearing peers and all children learn British Sign Language in order to ensure full inclusion.

 Mindfulness experiences offer children the skills to regulate their emotions and for the pupils to make informed choices ensuring their wellbeing is at the forefront of what we do. 

At Brimsdown we ensure the fundamental British Values are discussed and lived out through the ethos and culture of the school. We recognise our responsibility to prepare our children for life in modern Britain today. Our curriculum provides a vehicle for deepening and furthering understanding of these concepts.


Our Values

The whole school community share the role of bringing our values to life. We teach, develop and embed core values through all that we do to encourage both our children and staff to become the best version of themselves.
