‘The Brockley Way – Only My Best is Good Enough’

Arts Mark

Parent Information - Support with the day to day issues families are facing

Communication between home and school is very important. At Brockley Primary School we do not always produce ‘Newsletters’ instead we regularly send letters, leaflets, text messages and update our school Facebook page almost daily.


Working together ensures the very best outcome for all our children. At school we refer to our families as the people we live with at home, no two families are the same and we acknowledge that to ensure inclusivity children must feel a sense of belonging and safety when discussing their home life and the adults who care for them.


There's a broad spectrum of families represented at Brockley - Traditional Nuclear Families, Blended Families, Extended Families, Single Parent Families, Same-sex Parent Families, Childless Families and the Family you choose or are chosen to join and of course not forgetting The Brockley Family where we all belong.

Pastoral Support at Brockley Primary School


Hand In Hand



At Brockley Primary School Early Help is essential for our children and their families, that's why we have been working closely with Sophie Tipple (CAMHS Advisor),  Derbyshire's Virtual School and Yvonne Wright (Derbyshire Health and Wellbeing Consultant) to develop a bespoke offer of support that meets their needs.


P4YP Early Help Support

Brockley Primary School are able to provide extended and early help support to all of our families through the Positive4YoungPeople (P4YP) Service. 


The service is on hand to provide support to families in a wide range of different ways. Parents may be offered the service or can request a referral through any member of the Senior Leadership Team or Learning Mentors. 


More information about the work that P4YP can do and offer to the school can be found on their website: Home | P4YP
