Our school building on the Brough South Development in Brough is Designed to offer a stimulating, engaging and outstanding learning experience. This includes a specialist Technical Room which is fitted with an Apple TV and functions as a laboratory, workshop and digital exploration centre to allow for scientific and technical experimentation.
This allows our pupils to take part in hands-on scientific learning activities which are unusual in a primary setting, under the expert guidance of scientists and teachers. We will invite into school a range of exciting education professionals to really bring the curriculum alive, working alongside our staff to help pupils generate a lifelong love of learning, enquiry and discovery.
Throughout the school there will also be wireless technology and our primary pupils will be able to use ICT, such as interactive tablet applications, for research, reporting, data capture and analysis in addition to the usual functions of word processing, presenting and design.
The location of the school and the design of the site provide us with rich opportunities for outdoor learning: each classroom has direct access to an outdoor learning area and the school grounds will incorporate an ‘eco garden’. We will also take full advantage of our location close to the protected wetlands of Welton Waters to further the outdoor curriculum and build a hide for observation, so that our pupils can observe, record and monitor the local habitat and wildlife.
