Braywick Court School, as a Free School, was proposed by Bellevue Place Education Trust to meet the high basic need for further primary school places in the area. In 2013, the majority of Windsor and Maidenhead schools were oversubscribed. The Trust had been seeking a school in the area and were introduced to the Local Authority by the Education Funding Agency and the successful partnership to open Braywick Court began with the Local Authority showing us what was formerly the Winbury School building. The EFA agreed the purchase of the school building from the LA and from this point the Trust set about making the school a reality.
Our Vision and Values were clear from the outset:
Bellevue Place Education Trust Vision
Learn. Enjoy. Succeed.
As a parent you can expect excellence, both in how we teach and nurture your child. We foster a positive attitude to life, encouraging a ‘be interested and be interesting’ attitude by providing a rich learning environment full of arts, drama, sport, music and academic rigour.
Bellevue Place children are happy, confident, successful ‘all-rounders’ who expect to win and achieve in an inclusive setting where children, parents and school staff work together to provide the best. Our commitment to you and your child is that we will teach them to learn, enjoy and succeed both in their school career and beyond.
To enable every child to be the best they can be
We will optimise educational opportunities and outcomes for children of all abilities and backgrounds, enabling them to achieve confidence and success through high quality educational experiences and a range of extra-curricular activities. Our aim is for every child to reach their full academic potential.
Braywick Court School’s unique learning experience will centre on quality teaching supporting every child to learn, enjoy and succeed:
Using state of the art ICT provision
We will use cutting edge ICT provision to support learning across the curriculum and equip children with the skills they needs for life and the workplace. ‘Screen time’ will enhance ‘Green time’ – these are not stand alone initiatives.
Being A Green School
We make the most of our beautiful surroundings in Braywick Nature Reserve and take our learning outside at every opportunity. We care for our local environment and teach children good habits for being ecologically aware and looking after our world. We love local food and grow our own whenever we can.
Realising that it “takes a village to raise a child”*
Partnership with parents and our local community are key to our success. Parents play a significant role in their children’s education. Relevant and timely information about the school and its children is communicated to parents so that learning becomes a partnership between home and school. We forge strong community links so that we help our local community and they in turn help to enrich our children’s education.
But most importantly, we aim for all our children to learn, enjoy and succeed.
