What is it like to attend this school?

Pupils get a fantastic deal at Brocks Hill. They receive a high-quality education across the curriculum, and they benefit from an incredibly rich programme of personal development.

Pupils are quite rightly very proud of their school and all the wonderful things they know and can do.

The school is run by ardent and dedicated leaders who set the highest goals for every pupil. Staff ensure that pupils reach these aims.

Pupils' achievements in all subjects are exceptional. The way the school goes about helping pupils to develop their strength of character is also exceptional.

Classrooms are places where learning is cherished.

The serene that pervades Brocks Hill enables pupils to get the most out of every single lesson. Pupils mirror the attitudes and dispositions of the adults who teach and care for them. Staff are kind, enthusiastic and polite.

So too are the pupils – their behaviour is exemplary.

A culture of respect has been well and truly established at Brocks Hill. It is a place where pupils feel safe.

A place where they can be themselves. One pupil summed this up perfectly by saying, 'I like being able to be me – you can be yourself here.'

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

Pupils benefit from a very -well-thought-through curriculum.

Carefully sequenced subject curriculums set out exactly how pupils will gain a rich, connected body of knowledge. The school's curriculum sets out for staff how their lessons will build on learning from previous years, and how their teaching links to what will come next. This means that pupils develop their knowledge and acquire new skills in a logical, progressive order.

Carefully planned retrieval exercises help pupils to retain important information. Just as much thought has gone into how pupils will improve their vocabulary in each subject. As a result, pupils remember what they have learned in detail, and they can articulate and connect this knowledge fluently.

In history, for instance, Year 6 pupils can talk confidently about the civilizations they studied earlier in key stage 2, drawing comparisons and citing differences between the ancient Greeks and the Mayans.

Staff are passionate about books and the power of reading. Their love of reading has certainly rubbed off on pupils.

The school's newly refurbished library is a special place where pupils want to spend time. They look forward to weekly 'Book Club' sessions where they share what they are reading and hear recommendations from others. The reading journey at Brocks Hill starts the moment children join in Reception.

Staff are experts in developing children's spoken language. They take every opportunity to introduce new words and extend children's communication skills. Pupils quickly learn to read accurately and fluently.

Pupils enjoy the challenging texts they read in class. Staff show pupils how to dig deeper into these texts to gain a full understanding of what they are reading.Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) achieve very well.

Staff make sure that pupils with SEND learn the same ambitious content as their classmates. The school has ensured that staff know how to adapt their lessons to make this happen. Parents and carers of pupils with SEND recognise and appreciate the first-rate care and precise support their children receive.

Pupils' behaviour is typically impeccable. The school ensures that all staff have the same high expectations and a consistent approach. As a result, pupils understand the benefits of behaving well.

Pupils strive to show their '6R values' of respect, responsibility, resourcefulness, resilience, reflection and reciprocity. By the time they reach Year 6, pupils have an advanced understanding of how these qualities help them to be successful learners and well-rounded citizens. In addition, all pupils can take part in the Lionheart Character Award.

This is a structured programme of physical activity and outdoor learning designed to develop pupils' self-esteem, as well as their ability to lead and collaborate. The school is preparing pupils well for life in modern Britain. Pupils are very knowledgeable about British values and world faiths.

They are interested in the different ways people choose to live their lives, respecting their right to do so. Pupils profit from a very wide range of clubs, roles, events and trips to develop their talents and interests.

The school ensures that staff receive high-quality training so they can teach the curriculum well.

Staff really enjoy working at Brocks Hill and they appreciate the support provided by the trust. Leaders frequently monitor all aspects of school life to ensure that pupils consistently receive the very best.
