Welcome to Gordonbrock School

Gordonbrock School is part of the Eliot Bank & Gordonbrock Schools Federation


We believe in the creation of a culture in which difficulty is seen, not just as normal, but as beneficial - where mistakes are seen as valuable. A mistake is another learning opportunity and children know that their classrooms are safe places to try new things.

We are committed to fair and equal access to the curriculum for all children, regardless of their starting points and taking into account any additional needs they may have. We are highly aspirational for all of our children and we do whatever it takes to enable them to overcome barriers to their learning. In many cases we have to think ‘outside the box’ if we are to ensure that a child maximises his/her potential. We work together to do what it takes, and we do not give up.

All of this is underpinned by our unwavering commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. We will act quickly and follow our procedures to ensure children receive early help, effective support, protection and justice in a culture of transparency, openness and, if needed, challenge with regards to maintaining high standards in safeguarding.

Jane Wright, Head of School

Ofsted Report

We are absolutely delighted to attach the report detailing the outcome of our recent OFSTED Inspection. Inspectors judged our school to be Outstanding in all areas with an Overall Effectiveness grade of Outstanding too!

As you will know, we had been waiting since 2012 for a Section 5 OFSTED inspection and it finally happened on 19 and 20 March 2019. We are extremely proud of the report and we feel that Gordonbrock School has finally been recognised as a highly successful school where your children are thriving. There are development points for us to work on but they are minimal in comparison to the huge number of strengths that have been identified and they are already in our School Improvement Plan.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to school. We hope you are as pleased with the report as we are!

Mrs Wright and Miss Gilmore

Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and join the Rockets on a chase through space to find the aliens and save the Moon Library.

The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest free reading for pleasure event for children. It is run by the national charity The Reading Agency in partnership with the UK public library network.

The aim of the Challenge is to encourage children to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays.

The Challenge offers children and families an enjoyable activity in the six-week summer break from school when reading skills and confidence can dip, commonly known as the ‘summer slide’.

Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge.
