‘The Brockley Way – Only My Best is Good Enough’
In accordance with COVID-19 restrictions as of Tuesday 5th January 2021 school is open to Critical Worker and Vulnerable Children.
All children will be taught via our Remote & Blended Policies.
Remote/Blended Learning and Brockley Primary School
Updated January 2021
As a school, we are ready and prepared to deliver remote learning for our children should the need arise in this academic year.
From September 2020, any child who needs to self-isolate will receive access to remote learning provision. This will also apply to any ‘bubbles’ forced to close in the event of infection and exposure in school.
As of Tuesday 5th January all schools moved to remote and blended learning for pupils not eligible to attend. The information in this section gives details of the provision Brockley Primary School has made for these children.
Every parent in school has access to a SeeSaw and Dojo account.
This is where classteachers will upload work for children to complete. It also provides an interactive platform so that every child can receive feedback directly from their class teacher about their work, in order to move their learning on.
We appreciate that not all families have access to the internet or devices to complete learning on and as a school we will do all we can to support and provide the hardware and device required. In some cases, work and resources will be sent home for families to access practically – this will be discussed with individual families and children.
Downloadable copies of planning will be emailed weekly, so that parents and carers can work straight from these if they wish. Paper based packs will also be provided weekly and available for collection from the school office.
There is an expectation that all work set comes back to class teachers for marking. If families are not working remotely then collection of work may be be arranged.
As a school we also use Facebook, Messenger and Eduspot to communicate with our community.

“Brockley Primary School is proud to be an
Attachment Aware School
Brockley Primary School is a safe, welcoming and nurturing school that offers a sense of belonging. We are a growing and improving school and we pride ourselves that we know each and every child inside out. We do our best to help each child find their strengths and talents so that they will flourish and be challenged.
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 work closely with our families to ensure that all children achieve their potential across our community, having relentlessly high expectations of ourselves and others.
We are innovative, aspirational and consistent in our holistic approach, constantly reflecting on our practice. We try to make learning creative, stimulating, inclusive and fun with lots of challenge, setting ambitious goals for the future.
We offer our children a vast range of opportunities to light the spark of their learning, giving them the skills and tools they need to take off and fly!
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 in this way also provides a platform where we can share and celebrate what we are good at too.
‘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 the 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 collective.
