Brunton First School is located in the Great Park, Gosforth. We are a new school which was opened in 2009 with 39 children and have grown year on year. We grew to a 2 form entry school very quickly and September saw the first 3 form Reception cohort. We will be building extra classrooms onto school during this year. At present we have 330 children on roll, but will be increasing each year as our school grows until we have 450 children.
Brunton is a school of lifelong learning for children, staff, parents and the wider community, where children are nurtured enabling them to develop a love of learning, achieve their full potential and to be valued as a person. We recognise that every child is special and unique, at Brunton – every child matters.
The teaching and support staff work closely with parents to ensure that all the children have the best start to their education. Our aim is to establish a good pace for learning whilst enabling each child to be an individual. We encourage the whole school community to respect and care for one another and continually strive for excellence in everything we do.
The curriculum is led by the children in developing their own learning and results in an exciting and creative experience. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise; to ensure that all children fulfill their potential.
