At Branfil, we believe in developing the whole child so, as well as believing that each child is capable of academic success, we also provide a wide variety of opportunities for children to develop their personal, social, physical and creative skills. The atmosphere in school is purposeful and focused with children being keen to learn and staff supporting their progress and development. Our pupils are kind and caring towards one another, demonstrating our core values: Love, Explore, Aspire, Respect, Nurture (LEARN); and our Golden Rule: At Branfil we respect ourselves, each other and our environment. Visitors regularly comment on the positive ethos that is evident as you walk around the school and the confidence with which children talk about their learning.
We are lucky to have lots of specialist teaching spaces available: 3 halls, including a studio; specialist teaching rooms for art, music and computing; small group rooms for intervention work with individuals and groups of children; whole school fiction & non-fiction library; sports court, Forest School area and field.
At Branfil we know that building strong relationships with parents and carers is vital to ensure every child is successful whilst they are with us. Staff ensure that they establish and nurture good communication between home and school, working in partnership with parents and carers for the benefit of every pupil.
Pupils, parents/carers, staff and governors are all very proud to be part of Branfil, rightly so in my opinion. We believe that Branfil is a fantastic environment in which children thrive. Please come and visit us to see for yourself!
