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.

Being a Church School


Brooke Primary school is a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary school.

One of the aims of the school is:
 To develop an appreciation of Christian beliefs, practices and values and to respect and be sensitive to other people’s beliefs, faiths and cultures.

Our school values guide our vision and what being a church school is. Our values are :
 Love, Kindness, Togetherness, Wisdom and Resilience

What do we mean by ‘distinctively Christian’?
At Brooke we want children to grow into resilient, curious, successful people who develop academically, personally and spiritually. The heart of our ‘distinctiveness’ is to provide opportunities for children to experience the mystery and wonder of our world, and to share how the Christian faith has enriched our world through text, music and art, and through values such as love, kindness, togetherness, wisdom and resilience.
Through our extremely close links with our Parish church, St Peters Brooke, we enable children to experience the depth and mystery of Christian faith, whilst also recognising the many faiths that are represented amongst parents and children at the school.
