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.

Year 6 Junior Citizens Event

On Friday 15th March, Year 6 made the journey to Lee Fire House to take part in a Junior Citizen’s event. The children were split into groups and moved throughout the building, learning about keeping safe in a number of situations, e.g if they were in a fire, keeping safe on public transport or on the street.

The children also had the opportunity to talk about ways they can look after their physical and mental health.

Below are some thoughts from our year 6 pupils regarding ways to look after mental wellbeing;

"Keep learning and try new things."

"I will take notice of what’s happening around me, even the little things."

"Try and eat more healthy food."

It was a very positive and informative event for all involved.
