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.

Outdoor Education

Welcome to The Wishing Wood

We head to the woodlands every Friday afternoon. Each week, two classes make use of this amazing space for all sorts of activities, from science to art, poetry to maths and geography to PE. We are so lucky to use this space to enhance our learning. This is such a key part of what we do here at Brooke, in working to create the school that we would have wanted to go to, and we know how lucky we are as staff, and our children are to be able to make use of such a great space.

Just outside the village, set back from the Shotesham road lies our Wishing Wood. It is bordered by fields on all 4 sides and has no public rights of way to disturb its tranquillity. When we arrive to visit the site, we often find hares, deer and pheasants running free.

The Wishing Wood is part of William and Clare Turner’s farmland and they have, very generously, given us permission to use them throughout the year to enhance the curriculum.
