A Venn Academy Trust School

– Together we will…

Venn is a pioneering academy trust, committed to building educational environments where all pupils are inspired to become lifelong learners who achieve the very highest standards possible.

Collaborating with all partners, the Trust works with its unique settings to create world class learning experiences for all.

Our Curriculum

At Brooke Primary Academy our learning is based around a well-structured and sequenced curriculum that is broad, balanced and relevant. We have designed our curriculum to meet the needs of all our pupils and to provide them with a wide variety of learning experiences.

The curriculum will enable our children to have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the National Curriculum, with an emphasis on understanding their local area. We want our children to be proud of where they come from, to respect their community, but also to see that there is life beyond Thorne. Our curriculum is exciting and engaging, offering lots of challenge and scope for the children to express their creativity with confidence.

When our children leave Brooke, they will have received an education that has prepared them for life in 21st century and they will develop as kind, tolerant and considerate members of society. They will be equipped for the next stage of their educational journey and they will have a love of learning supported by the skills of independence, resilience and adaptability. As a result of our curriculum, Brooke children will be enthusiastic, confident and ambitious learners with high aspirations and a desire to be a leader of their own learning.​
