Brookfield Community School ... in a nutshell

OUR ETHOS

At Brookfield our staff share a clear vision for the school underpinned by our Aspire, Act, Achieve strapline. This ethos is reinforced through our approach to all students, both in the curriculum and our pastoral support, and results in a high-quality, inclusive provision for all. 

OUR STUDENTS

Brookfield is a caring school where students’ character development is prioritised alongside high progress and outcomes. Students behave well in lessons and throughout the school there is a purposeful and engaging learning environment. Our school ethos is driven through our House System which ensures that every child is seen as an individual, receives the care and support they need and issues that may arise are dealt with effectively and efficiently. This was reaffirmed by the Ofsted team who recorded students feel safe and supported, enjoy coming to school and the school encourages them to stand on their own two feet. They also stated that issues, including rare incidences of bullying, are dealt with quickly and effectively. Our students consistently achieve well above average, as indicated by attainment and achievement measures, placing us amongst the top performing schools in Hampshire. 

OUR CURRICULUM

At a whole school level our curriculum is rich and engaging, with over 34 different level 2 qualifications on offer, and our students retain a wide and diverse balance of subjects until they specialise in year 10. They have a broad choice package in Year 9 which enables them to experience all of the level 2 courses on offer so they are able to make excellent choices for Year 10 based on knowledge and experience. A diverse range of both GCSE and vocational qualifications allows all students to select subjects that align with their passions, interests and future career or academic aspirations. 

OUR TEACHERS

Our training for teachers is of a high-quality, carefully planned and linked to strategic action plans. We are innovative in the ways we deliver training (e.g. L&T briefings with take-away strategies, Optional INSET, Dept. CPD budgets) which enables teachers to continue to develop their subject and pedagogical skills whatever their career stage. As such, our teachers are constantly reviewing and refining their teaching for student learning, trialling new evidence-based approaches (e.g. Teach Like a Champion, The Vocab Gap, WalkThrus) as well as practice from other schools. Leadership training is central to our staff development, with opportunities ranging from our Recently Qualified Teacher coaching to our bi-annual Middle Leadership Conference, Aspiring Middle Leaders course and a new Aspiring Senior Leader course. Ofsted stated that our teachers are skilled, have high expectations, plan effectively, use assessment well and ensure students embed knowledge and behave well.  Supporting staff welfare and wellbeing plays a key role at Brookfield and we have signed up to the DfE Education Staff Well-Being Charter. We provide personalised support for staff when needed as well as promoting open discussion regarding general wellbeing and mental health. Specifically, SLT and Middle Leaders are undergoing welfare and wellbeing training to ensure that leaders are fully equipped to meaningfully support our staff. We hold a range of whole school staff wellbeing events e.g. Mental Health Awareness week, but this isn’t standalone and the programme of wellbeing events run throughout the year.  Consideration of teacher workloads is taken into account within all strategic decisions and as such we have been able to make some considerable reductions in our in-school workload (e.g. reduction in written reports, straight-forward data collection systems, 4 Cover Supervisors, extensive administrative support, annual review of meeting structure). Staff retention at Brookfield is high.
