‘Only My Best is Good Enough’
‘Only my best is good enough’
I am delighted and proud to be the Headteacher of a school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the wider school community work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of teaching and learning – which we believe will be achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise, to ensure that all students fulfill their potential.
At Brockley Primary School you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect. Our supportive pastoral systems are beginning to help pupils to achieve and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world.
Our school motto ‘The Brockley Way – Only my best is good enough’ is at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning and showing that failure can be a learning opportunity.
We believe working collaboratively with other schools is extremely beneficial as it helps our staff reflect and adapt their practice, so that we improve our school’s approach to teaching and learning – which leads to improved outcomes for our children. Working like this also provides a platform where we can share and celebrate what we are good at.
‘The Bolsover Excellence Schools Trust – BEST‘ is one of the collaborations we are part of. This collaboration consists of 10 geographically local schools working together within a set of shared values, principles and purposes. As a collective we challenge and support our schools within our trust on their journey to excellence through an agreed Memorandum of Understanding and a robust action plan based on an external review of data and school performance as both individuals and as a trust.
We are also part of the Teaching School Alliance (TSA) Synergy and work with 35 schools throughout Derbyshire. Again, we feel that this develops professional development and supports staff in understanding their roles within a child’s academic and pastoral journey to success.
