Brockley Primary School

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

Parent Information

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.


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

List of organisations and local groups offering support  

Derbyshire Community Response Unit CRU 

We’re co-ordinating a massive community response across the county to make sure vulnerable residents are supported through the coronavirus outbreak. 

We’re calling on Derbyshire’s strong network of community groups, voluntary organisations and businesses to help by joining the Derbyshire Community Response Unit. Do you belong to a business or group that could help supply goods or services? 

The Community Response Unit will help those in need by delivering services such as: 

  • foodshopping and delivery
  • checking up on people who are isolated with a phone call or online help to prevent loneliness and check whether there is anything they need
  • collecting and delivering prescriptions
  • preparing meals.

Residents who could be helped by the Community Response Unit include those who are self-isolating because they, or a member of their household, is at risk from coronavirus. Support will be offered to residents struggling to meet their basic needs because of financial, social and health restrictions – including pregnant women, people with some underlying health conditions and those aged 70 or over. 

If you’re involved in a community group, voluntary organisation or business and you have members who are below the age of 70 who are fit and well then we want to hear from you.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email:
