At Brandles there is a strong emphasis on respect. From the moment a pupil starts at Brandles we are clear that pupils must respect each other, they must respect the property and most importantly they must respect themselves.
We have excellent staff. All of our teachers, teaching assistants and support staff work together to ensure that the learning environment is as stimulating and accessible as possible.
The school places a strong emphasis on the individual, all of our pupils have a unique set of circumstances and requirements. Our job is to optimise their potential. Every pupil will have an area of strength – the staff work hard to identify that strength and then build upon it, which in turn improves self-esteem and confidence.
We have numerous links with external providers all of whom focus on developing independence and belief in oneself.
A strong aspect of Brandles is the pastoral care. We have regular contact with parents/carers and pride ourselves on the excellent relationships. We respond quickly to situations and ensure that everyone who needs to know is informed. Many of our pupils have difficulties in their lives and can be very sensitive about their circumstances. Our staff deal professionally and compassionately with these situations and at all times try to ensure that there is a positive outcome.
We are a welcoming school and look forward to working with you to ensure that your son has the best possible education.
