We hope you find the information on this website useful. It has been carefully prepared by Mr Jon Carthy (Assistant Head Teacher) with the help of staff, pupils and governors.

However, if you require further information, you can email, phone or write to Mrs Penny Harrison (PA to the HT). Mrs Harrison also deals with pupil admissions. Curriculum plans, policies and other documents can also be obtained in the same way.

At Brompton-Westbrook we offer a range of support for children who have additional educational needs. This includes teaching assistant support to focus on literacy and numeracy skills and speech and language needs. Our teaching assistants are well qualified and experienced with expertise relating to reading, writing, number, speaking and listening, dyslexia and language development. Support is delivered through Group Education Plans (GEP’s) and on a 1-1 basis for some children.

We also have a pastoral team who offer support for children with emotional, behavioural and social needs. This support focuses on raising self esteem, confidence, social and friendship skills. We can also provide ‘listening ear’ support to help children who have worries or concerns that they may need to share. Through the pastoral team we also provide support for children with dyspraxia, aspergers syndrome and attention and listening difficulties. The pastoral team also support each of our new pupils who join the school throughout the year through our ‘Rookies’ club. This includes introducing the children to the school, discussing how it feels to change school and getting the Rookies settled in at BW as quickly as possible.

Some children will be supported by our learning mentor. This is a position funded by the Medway Excellence Cluster Partnership to support academic and behaviour achievement in school.


Every child deserves a high quality and appropriate education. The National and Foundation Stage Curricula set out what must be taught. However, each school can decide how to interpret this guidance.

In order to do the very best for our children we sought advice from The Royal Society for the Arts (RSA) and collaborated with three other local schools to develop a fresh approach to implementing the National Curriculum documents. The overriding aim at this school is to raise standards in basic skills.

Our views have been influenced by international, national, local and school based research and monitoring. We know that methods used in The Foundation Stage have been successful and believe that extending this approach and ethos will have a similarly positive effect on children as they progress through the school.

We know that our school has unique characteristics, such as high mobility, and these were highlighted by OFSTED (2004). We have responded to what we know about the school by preparing an appropriate model for teaching the curriculum. As part of this, we believe that building the RSA Competences for Learning into our curriculum will help our children to learn more effectively.

The Primary Strategy document, Excellence and Enjoyment, was published some time after our project began. We believe that our policy and practice go beyond the extent of change outlined in this document and more accurately reflects the challenges presented at Brompton-Westbrook Primary School.

Overall, the curriculum is designed to ensure that children receive their entitlement to a broad curriculum and all statutory elements of the National Curriculum in the long-term. There is continuity and progression of skills, knowledge and understanding in the medium-term and balance in the short term.


Clubs are always oversubscribed.

Places are limited on all clubs and will be issued on an eldest first basis (within the clubs’ set age group). The school produce a club leaflet three times in the academic year. Pupils must apply each time. Leaflets are issued to pupils and are available from the main reception.

Club attendance

If your child is in school they will be expected to attend the club. If they cannot attend, you must let the school know by writing, telephone or calling in at the reception. This is a child protection issue. If we have agreed to look after your child after school and they are missing, it will be treated as an emergency. Failure to notify the school even once will mean your child may not stay to the club again.
In order to minimise disruption to the running of clubs, your child may only leave to join another club at half-term or end of term.
