Visions and Values


Brookland Infant and Nursery School is a warm and welcoming place with a caring ethos.  We promote an environment where diversity is embraced and celebrated and where children thrive in a secure and happy environment.


Our Brookland Infant and Nursery School vision is a simple statement of the type of school we wish to see and it is at the heart of everything we do.


Be Kind, Grow Together, Learn Forever.

We believe:

  • Every child should be encouraged to be thoughtful, understanding and care about themselves and others. (Be Kind)


  • Every child should be encouraged to develop their full potential in a safe, stimulating and caring environment in which every child should be valued for their individuality, culture and heritage. (Growing Together)


  • Every child’s emotional wellbeing is supported so that they are happy and ready to learn. All children are supported to become independent and reflective lifelong learners. (Learn Forever)


Our Brookland Values support our vision of enabling our children to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society; preparing them for life beyond our school and support the promotion of British Values.  These were devised by our whole school community: children, staff and parents:



Courage: We are brave, ambitious and determined risk-takers.



Respect: We value and listen to everybody as individuals.



Friendship: We all work together and support each other to build our community. We are thoughtful, understanding and care about ourselves and others.



Tolerance: We accept our friends and people around us for who they are and enjoy talking with them, listening to them, playing with them whatever they look like and whatever their religion or beliefs may be.



Honesty: We are reflective and tell the truth.



Responsibility: We try our best and take responsibility for our learning and the choices we make.



We aim to achieve our vision and values by:

  • Working together as a team: children, staff, parents, governors and the local community.
  • Providing a safe and happy environment which creates opportunities for each child to reach their full academic and non-academic potential.
  • Offer a broad and balanced curriculum with exciting and challenging learning opportunities for all.
  • Presenting a broad and balanced curriculum that will develop our children’s knowledge and skills; preparing them for them for life beyond our school.
  • Fostering the development of a positive self-image, independence and a sense of responsibility. 
  • Enabling children to become aware of their own feelings and to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others.
  • Developing awareness of the importance of caring for the environment and the wider world.
  • Celebrate our diversity through valuing the beliefs, languages and cultures of all members of our school community.


At Brookland Infant and Nursery School we want every child to leave our school the best possible version of themselves and to take with them happy memories of their early school years.
