Staff and Governors

Message from the Chair of Governors

As Chair of Governors, I am very proud of our school and how far we have come in such a short space of time. The overall purpose of the Governing Body is to help our school provide the best possible education for all of the pupils in order to develop every child’s full potential:

Nurture, Aspire, Believe, Achieve.

The vision for our school is to create a safe, nurturing environment which enables each child to attain greatness and a lifelong love of learning. We will encourage all our children to reach their maximum potential, independently through inclusion and first hand discovery learning. We believe we are all individuals with different views, needs and aspirations; therefore all areas of the curriculum should be valued. Children learn best when they are happy and following their own interests, therefore we will ensure that they are given the opportunity to share the planning of our creative curriculum. We recognize that teamwork between staff, parents and children, working together with respect has the greatest impact on our children’s learning. We believe everyone has a place in the life of the school and our school is the heart of the community. We can make a real difference to every child in our school.

The school is growing, with more and more parents choosing Brierley. Our most recent OFSTED inspection shows that the school is rapidly improving in all areas. We have good to outstanding teaching and inspiring leadership.

We care about the children’s education and all round development and at Brierley I firmly believe that we help all children to make the most of their potential.

In addition to our school, we now have our own Nursery Provision- LittleBears@Brierley, Preschool provision for 3 year olds. We established this nursery to help us to give children a firm foundation on which to base their education. Everyone here at Brierley works hard to improve the life chances for all.

I am proud of the school and the fantastic things that are achieved by those who belong to it.

Kind regards,

Mike Birchall
Chair of Governors
