Starting at Brunswick Park School
At Brunswick Park we build a strong partnership between the staff and parents/carers/guardians because we know that this partnership is important in helping children to learn and to enjoy learning. We keep you informed and involved in the running of the school and the children’s education.
Regular newsletters will tell you about special events, outings and school activities, as well as giving information on day to day school life.
You are invited to the children’s class sharing assemblies throughout the year. Concerts and celebrations are organised from time to time during the year, which give you an opportunity to enjoy music, drama and other work done by your children.
Parents’ evenings take place each term and your child will receive an annual report in the summer term.
Brunswick Park is a two and a half form entry school, run as a three-form entry school. At this time, due to regeneration in the local area, there is an admissions cap in some Year Groups. Each September, the school is able to admit 75 children into three reception classes. We also have a purpose built nursery offering up to 60 part time places. Teachers plan the children’s work according to the Early Years and National Curriculum guidelines so that each child has access to a broad and balanced education. There are Nursery Nurses and Teaching Assistants who work alongside Class Teachers to raise the achievement of every child.
Brunswick Park is an inclusive school. We welcome children with special educational needs (SEND) as part of our community and aim to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to engage in the curriculum. The needs of children are identified and assessed as early as possible. We are committed to a multi-disciplinary approach to meeting SEND. Our Assistant Head Teacher (Inclusion) and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) liaise with the class teacher and parents and carers, and a prevision map is put in place and regularly reviewed to monitor progress. A wide range of resources is used to support children in meeting their targets. Where additional specialist advice and support is necessary we will contact the appropriate external agencies, for example the Educational Psychologist and the Speech and Language Therapist. We work closely with parents and carers and valuing their views and contributions, keeping them fully involved in their children’s education.
The Resource Base is a resource for children with autistic spectrum disorders and has been open since 2005. It offers specialist provision in a variety of settings in school. Pupils work within their classrooms as much as possible, and are well supported by adults who are trained to understand and respond to their needs. To continue to enhance its provision, Brunswick Park is developing links with Tollgate Primary School in Newham, which has Autism accreditation.
