Brentfield Primary and Nursery School is a three-form entry school, situated in spacious, attractive and quiet grounds just off Brentfield Road near the Swaminarayan Temple. The original building dates from 1940. It was doubled in size with the completion of a new block in 1991. In 2007 a new library extension was completed. This has made the school a spacious, bright and welcoming place. We have additional rooms for music, dance and drama and extensive grounds with landscaped gardens all around. We have a wildlife area which the children use for their science work. We are committed to providing a wide curriculum for each child. At the same time, we stress the importance of the basic skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking and mathematics. We believe that children need these as a sound educational basis for future learning. We are a multi-cultural school, which draws its pupils mainly from our immediate neighbourhood. We strongly believe that education is a partnership between the school and the home. For this reason, we actively encourage a working partnership with parents. We believe that this leads to higher standards and the general well-being of all children in the school.
