Welcome to Gordonbrock School

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

Following the government decision late on the evening of Friday 1 January 2021, primary schools in Lewisham were directed to remain closed to the majority of pupils after the Christmas holiday, due to the extremely high COVID 19 infection rates within our borough. We understand that this decision will be reviewed by the government after February Half Term (15/02/21 - 19/02/21), in line with the latest information on infection rates at that time.

From Tuesday 5 January 2021, we will be following government expectations that only children of critical workers and vulnerable children who have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP); those with an assigned Social Worker or other circumstances will be able to attend school.

During this period our learning for all other children moves online and we are fully prepared for this eventuality.

Our remote learning offer is through Google Classroom, and we sent home login details with your child last term. If you have mislaid these, please contact the school office via email (info@gordonbrock.lewisham.sch.uk). We will get these to you as soon as possible.

For more information please read the Remote Learning letter that was sent home recently.

At Gordonbrock, we focus on providing a safe and nourishing environment where children feel accepted, included and able to take on new challenges.  With this in place, we know that we can instill a love of learning in our children.  Our policy and practice is based on what we know about how our brains learn most effectively.  Our teaching strategies are ‘brain-friendly’ and provide children with what they need to learn best.  We are committed to developing lifelong learners who value and exhibit qualities such as: resilience; aspiration; imagination; confidence and collaboration.  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
