Our Ethos

A small federation of small schools in South Norfolk. We are making the schools that we would have wanted to go to. By working together in collaboration, we improve one another and support each other to grow. Sunflowers are known for their resilience and symbolise hope, happiness, and growth. Our federation nurtures childrens’ academic, personal, and spiritual growth. It inspires children, staff, and parents to strive for excellence in all aspects of their life, just as sunflowers grow towards the sun and reach their full potential.

The roots, for Brooke CE VC’s church foundations, indicate that we are rooted and grounded in God's love, which is at the core of all our actions and educational philosophy. The stem represents our curriculum, which provides a strong foundation for our children across both schools to grow and thrive. The leaves symbolise our values, which drive our decision-making and behaviour. The petals are indicative of our key focuses such as DEI, careers, and compassion. Lastly, the bees and butterflies that are flying away from the sunflower represent the things that we want our children to leave us with, which are the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to make a positive impact in the world.

Our Church of England School

Brooke VC CE Primary School enjoys a strong relationship with St. Peter’s Parish Church in Brooke. Revd. Lynn Chapman actively supports our school, and involves the school warmly in events at the church. The school looks forward to marking Easter, Harvest and Christmas with the Church and wider Brooke community as well as our annual Leavers’ Service. Lynn also represents our church foundations on the governing body, and alongside our other governors provides invaluable support, commitment and advice, working alongside us for the benefit of the children, families and staff of Brooke.

At Brooke, we have a daily act of worship. This is important to all members of our school community as we value the chance to be together and reflect on the values that are part of our distinctiveness as a Church of England school. The themes are linked to the school ethos statement:

Learning together, Achieving Together, Growing Together. Rooted and grounded in God's Love.

Ephesians 3:14 - 21

The children say that the calm music at the beginning of acts of worship sets the scene for what is to come and the children enjoy and remember the prayer which ends each act of worship. They also remember songs about God and that they like to think about God during this time.

Church School Inspection

As a Voluntary Controlled Church of England primary school, we are subject to Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS), evaluating how the Christian character of the school has an impact on the learners and the school community. More information and the latest reports can be found here.
