Brough School is located in the Parish of Elloughton-cum-Brough to the West of Hull. It is a non-denominational county primary school.
|Brough School is at the heart of the community. There are three access points to the school. The main gates for both pedestrian and vehicle access are on Springfield Avenue.
|Other pedestrian accesses are provided via Sandfield Drive and from Elloughton Road opposite Jefferson Drive. Note that these two gates are usually locked during school hours except at the start and finish of the school day. The main road crossings are supervised daily by school crossing patrol.|
|Brough School is set in large impressive grounds with mature trees and garden areas.
|We also have an award winning 'natural wildlife and pond' area which was designed and built by the children with help from parents and staff.|
The School comprises of two main buildings offering a range of teaching areas. The main entrance to the school is located in the newer building and all visitors are asked to report to the administration office on arrival. The majority of classrooms in this building are large and self-contained with their own cloakroom and toilet facilities. The central hall is used for assemblies, dance and drama. In the older building there is a gymnasium, the library and a computer room equipped with up-to-date technology.
The school also has its own kitchen and canteen building. The children are able to have their lunch with wonderful views overlooking the wildlife area.
All our buildings have access for the disabled.
Brough County Primary School aims to provide a stimulating, caring and safe environment in which our children desire to learn independently and with others, through an exciting educational programme that challenges and develops the whole child.
We believe every child should have equality of opportunity to develop their maximum potential through:
- a broad and balanced curriculum which is carefully planned to ensure continuity and progression
- experience of a variety of effective teaching and learning strategies matched to individual children's needs
- the celebration of achievement
- working in a friendly, caring and disciplined atmosphere
- the promotion of an active home/school partnership.
High quality learning occurs when:
- relationships are good, respectful, positive, supportive and professional
- all children are challenged to higher aspiration and effort
- children have high expectations of themselves and others
- working in a well resourced and pleasant environment which supports effective learning
- teaching and learning are regularly monitored, evaluated, reviewed and revised
- children actively participate in self-assessment, target setting and action planning.
We aim to help pupils to:
- develop lively, enquiring, imaginative and creative minds with the ability to question, argue rationally and apply themselves to tasks
- have the confidence to transfer existing knowledge and skills to new situations
- develop a reasoned set of positive attitudes, values and beliefs
- develop respect for those with different religions, beliefs and ways of life and to be encouraged to value everyone
- be active participants and responsible contributors to school life and the community
- develop independence and responsibility
- work co-operatively as a member of a team
- produce a high standard of work and to take pride in their achievements
- to begin to understand the world in which they live and to respect the environment
- use language and mathematics effectively and to develop the use of information technology
- develop healthy, fit bodies
- prepare for the future by learning to respond flexibly to change and making informed choices
- prepare for adult life by developing interests and skills that will lead to enjoyment in leisure time.
The curriculum is carefully planned to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum which consists of three core subjects:- English, Mathematics and Science and seven foundation subjects:- History, Geography, Technology, Information Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education. Religious Education is also taught throughout the school. French is taught to all pupils in Years 5 and 6.
The curriculum is planned on a two year rolling programme for each broad age group:- reception, key stage one, lower key stage two and upper key stage two. The curriculum is delivered through a variety of teaching styles appropriate to each subject. Teacher assessment is on-going and is used to inform future short-term planning, differentiating the curriculum to meet each child's needs. Standardised assessments are also carried out periodically and at the end of each key stage. The progress of each child is carefully monitored.
Mathematics and English lessons follow the guidelines set out in the National Curriculum and in the National Numeracy and Literacy Strategies with one hour of structured reading activities and a one hour numeracy session every day.
