We are a primary school in the Brockhurst area of central Gosport
We serve children and families from the age of 4 until 11. We have really good relationships with the feeder pre-schools and the Brune Park secondary school.
We value every child and family member and do all we can to work with families to guide children through the crucial primary phase of their life. We are fully committed to the Unicef ‘Rights of the child’ charter.
We believe in the phrase ‘learn and grow together’ because life is about these two natural processes and from time to time, we need others to help us.
The reality is that ‘learning’ relies on mistakes being made. This can be frustrating and joyful. As long as our intentions are full of respect and we take responsibility for the choices we make, we’ll grow to make the best of ourselves, each other and contribute to society as responsible and respectful citizens.
At Brockhurst Primary school, our core aim is to grow each child’s skills of communicating in maths, reading and writing are crucial. It is our belief and intention though, that citizenship remains the over-arching aim. We are successful in enabling children to learn about and grow their resilience, resourcefulness, their reciprocity and their reflectiveness.
(Ask any child in the school and they can explain what these words mean to them, I promise!)
Please browse the rest of this web site in order to see more of what children achieve and how we go about guiding them.
The web site will always be ‘a work in progress’ because we will constantly be updating it.
In September 2016 though, it’ll be at it’s most bare because we amalgamated the Brockhurst infant and junior schools and became a primary school on September 1st; so we are very young, very much ‘learning and growing together’!
