Welcome to Bricknell Primary School
At Bricknell Primary School we will meet the needs of each and every child, promote positive values and aim to make every day enjoyable and rewarding. We will work in partnership with parents, families and our community to provide a calm, safe and nurturing environment where people respect each other and feel happy, secure and valued.
We encourage children to aim high in everything they do. We believe in developing individual talents and celebrating success in all aspects of school life. Our lessons, supported by new technologies and extra-curricular provision, will nurture curiosity, inspire a love of learning, foster independence and equip our children with the skills they need for the future.
By having high expectations and a relevant, creative curriculum, we will bring out the best in everybody.

Multi Academy Trust Consultation
As you are hopefully aware, our school chose to convert to become an academy in October 2013 as part of an Umbrella Trust of academies in the city called the ICA Partnership.
Since the publication of the Government White Paper, ‘Educational Excellence Everywhere’ in March, the academies in the ICA have been considering how best to respond to the changing educational landscape. No further Umbrella Trusts are being approved by the Department for Education and academies are now being strongly encouraged to form or join Multi-Academy Trusts. Some of the ICA schools have already joined other Multi-Academy Trusts or are in the process of forming their own.
As all Multi-Academy Trusts are different and operate in different ways, our Governing Body have been considering a range of options which would best suit Bricknell, so that we can continue to work in a strong partnership with other schools whilst retaining control over the running of our own school.
