Welcome to Brereton Church of England Primary School.
I have been headteacher here for eleven years and it is my pleasure to introduce you to our school.
We are proud to provide education for children from four to eleven years old in our unique Christian setting.
Brereton has seven single age classes from Reception through to Year 6. Our smallest class has nineteen pupils and our largest has thirty.
As a church school, we hold Christian values at the very heart of our school ethos. Our aim is that every child who passes through our doors will be inspired with a love of life and learning in order to reach their full potential.
In Reception we encourage and nurture the potential of each individual and this approach continues throughout the school to Year Six. By eleven our pupils have experienced a range of learning experiences; they are equipped to face new challenges; and we hope that they have developed skills and values that will last them a lifetime.
In addition to the teaching and learning that forms our daily timetable we are also able to offer music lessons in brass, woodwind, piano and stringed instruments. The school has a choir that represents us at local events. Classes regularly visit local theatres for shows and plays. A favourite of all the children is when their class topic is enhanced by a trip or visit to bring learning to life. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular sports through our link with the Holmes Chapel and Community District Partnership. Our children love to perform for you in class assemblies, in Christmas nativities or carol services, in Musical Evenings, in Summer Performances or Church Services.
If you choose our school you will be joining a new family; the Brereton family. Our older pupils care about our younger pupils. Our School Council encourages us to support charities. Our PTA are fabulous for fundraising and enhancing the facilities that we are able to offer. St Oswald’s Church is our church; your children will lead services here regularly. We have a link school in Kenya, St Lwanga; a Catholic Primary School in the Rift Valley. Having this partnership helps us to understand the wider world.
Here on our website are just a few of the things that you will find as you enter our doors. They cannot do justice to the calm, purposeful environment and warm welcome that you will receive if you can find the time to visit us in person. Please telephone the school (01270 685125) to speak to Mrs Sant or Mrs Betteley and make an appointment to see the school for yourself. I look forward to meeting you.
