Brunswick Park serves a diverse community – ethnically, and increasingly economically and socially – that historically has experienced significant disadvantage. Our mission is to equip Brunswick’s children with the knowledge and skills to live in modern society as good, responsible citizens, able and willing to contribute, support and understand others equally.

Relationships are key to us realising our mission. If relationships are founded in mutual respect, fairness and consideration for others, children feel safe. When they feel safe they can take risks, be challenged and ask questions. Asking questions breeds curiosity and from curiosity comes engagement. If children are engaged, they learn, enjoy it and want to persevere even when learning and life get tough. Our staff learn that as every child is unique, there is no one size fits all approach to teaching. While we ensure there is consistency of provision, high expectation, productivity and outcome, our children most affected by adverse childhood experiences, SEMH challenges and complex SEND need approaches that are tailored entirely to them.

It is our job to compensate, our ethos to do this through values-based education and our moral purpose to make a positive difference to our school community and to love and care for our children as a family whilst enabling attainment and disadvantage gaps to close and our teachers to continue to learn and grow.
