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.

School Uniform

Here at Brooke Primary School, we encourage pupils to wear school uniform in the hope that this will enable all children to feel equal and respected whilst they are in school.

As a school which prides ourselves on inclusive and equitable practice, we firmly believe that the work that The Children's Society have done to Cut the Cost of School Uniform for families of children in school has been vital. For further information on what this means in our school, please see: https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/what-we-do/our-campaigns/cut-the-cost-school-uniforms.

If you would like to discuss the implications of this further, our office staff and senior leaders are always open to further conversations. Please contact us through the school office.

All uniform, with the school logo, can be purchased online from Stevensons - www.stevensons.co.uk

The PTFA hold regular sales of Second-hand Uniform (further detail available from the School Office)

Jewellery and Watches

In line with health and safety regulations, no jewellery is allowed except for one pair of smooth flat ear studs. The wearing of jewellery because of religious reasons is permitted, such as kara bracelets for Sikh students. If you are unsure if the item of jewellery you would like to wear is permitted, please speak to a member of staff.

Pupils may wear watches, not smart watches, but the school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage.
