Welcome from The Head

Welcome to Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School.


On behalf of the Governors, staff and children here at Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School, we would like to welcome you and thank you for visiting our website.


We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere and hope that new parents and children will quickly feel part of our school family.


We are part of a federation with Newsome Junior School and work closely together to ensure that children in our shared community receive the best outcomes possible in their learning and personal development.


We have high expectations and expect all children to work hard and "reach for the stars" in everything they do.


Our curriculum ensures that we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum in a context relevant to our children. The staff and I believe that first-hand experience is crucial in the learning process and that planned and purposeful play provides powerful learning opportunities for all young children.


It is important to us that the children are happy, confident and resilient and enjoy their learning; making the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. We ensure that the children are engaged, challenged and become highly effective problem solvers and communicators.


We hope that during their time with us your children will become confident, articulate and inquisitive and endeavour to work in partnership with parents to achieve the very best provision for every individual.


Our website is your first opportunity to find out lots of information about our school but we would love you to visit us, to experience the school environment and ethos for yourselves. You will be welcomed by a member of the Senior Leadership Team and some of our children who would be more than happy to show you around. Simply contact our school office to make an appointment.


I am incredibly proud to be the Federation Headteacher of Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School and Newsome Junior School. The staff and I aim to make each child's primary school days exciting and rewarding so that they develop a love of learning that will last all their lives. We look forward to showing you around our school.
