INSPIRE WORKSHOPS

Thank you to all parents who have attended our Inspire workshops this term looking at the UNICEF Rights Respecting School. At Brookfields, we have high expectations of pupil behaviour so that all children can get the best out of their learning. It is important that school works with parents to support pupils and we value your input. Our behaviour and safeguarding policies are on the school website. If you have any concerns, please come and talk to us.

 

Y5 held their Inspire workshop this week. Here are some of the comments made by parents:

  • It was really helpful and should be done more often
  • It was nice to see interaction between the teachers and children
