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.

Tim Attwater, Headteacher


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.

She is really happy at Bricknell and loves coming to school. She is always very confident and speaks to other children, older and younger with real pleasure – I’m sure this is because of the school culture and respect.

My daughter has enjoyed year 6 so much. She’s happy, learning and rapidly developing confidence which was much needed. Its obvious Year 6 works like clockwork and each and every member of staff genuinely cares about the success of the children.

“A lovely school, her sibling goes to Kelvin but had the best start in life by attending Bricknell and I can honestly say that my daughter here is continuing to get the best start in life, all teachers, staff, lunch staff and all the other do an amazing job and this school would not be what it is without you all as well as the bright happy pupils. A great school. Well done.”
