Joining Brookland Infant and Nursery School

Welcome Message from Mrs McCafferty, the headteacher

Welcome to Brookland Infant and Nursery School


We are delighted that you are interested in sending your child to Brookland Infant and Nursery school whether that is for our Nursery or one of our Reception classes in September 2021.


At present we are not able to invite visitors into school to do our usual school tours due to Covid-19. We therefore hope that you will find this website page useful and that that the given information, videos, photographs and virtual tours will give you a good idea what a special place Brookland Infant and Nursery School is.


We are a three form entry Infant school with a Nursery. Our school is a warm and welcoming place with a caring ethos.  We promote an environment where diversity is embraced and where children thrive in a secure and happy environment. Our school is committed to high expectations and the achievement of high standards for everyone and the school community works together to achieve our school aims.   We treat every child as an individual.  We provide them with a range of opportunities to develop their potential, regardless of their abilities.


We want our children to leave Brookland Infant and Nursery School with the behaviours that they will need to succeed in the world and will be confident and successful lifelong learners.    

By the end of their time at Brookland Infant and Nursery School we want our children to be able to:

  • think creatively and use their imagination
  • solve problems
  • respect other people
  • communicate effectively
  • challenge themselves
  • be resilient and persevere
  • to form good relationships with others
  • be curious and ask questions
  • keep healthy and safe
  • to reflect on their learning
  • to care for their environment and the wider world


We very much hope that you will enjoy finding out more about our school from this page and that you want to join the Brookland community. I very much hope that we will get to meet you and your child very soon.
