Welcome to Gordonbrock School

Gordonbrock School is part of the Eliot Bank and 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

On Friday 15th November 2019 we will be joing the nation in raising money for Children In Need.

This year our theme is Spots!

Children can come to school in a spotty outfit or even dress-up as a spotty Pudsey bear.

We would glady appreciate a £1 donation to help us continue to support this wonderful charity.

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
