By engaging with those in the school community and beyond, we can build a learning community that supports achievement and attainment. We embrace the opportunity to look out beyond our school gate and understand our larger role within the local community.
Our mission is to improve educational outcomes for all pupils at Brownlow Fold and to ensure that pupils leave us well prepared academically, socially and emotionally for the next stage of their education.
At Brownlow Fold our aim is to:
- Provide a stimulating, child-centred curriculum which inspires pupils to learn.
- Promote challenge in a safe and nurturing environment.
- Develop pupils that are confident, resilient, self-assured learners with excellent attitudes to learning.
- Work collaboratively with all stakeholders (home / school /child / governors / community).

‘Together We Fly’
We believe that making a school ‘welcoming’ is much more than a list of things we can do. Creating a welcoming atmosphere is more an attitude. We are the ones who create the true feeling of being welcomed. A smile, a Thank you, or a May I help you? coupled with a commitment to serve others reflects the true core values of all the staff at Brownlow Fold. All staff are valued equally and their voice heard. The positive dynamics within the team enable your children to reap the rewards of a united and committed staff. We are extremely proud of our school and visitors are always welcome.
If you would like to find out more about our school, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.

What are we focusing on?
All pupils at Brownlow Fold are given the opportunity to work towards achieving the ‘Brownlow Fold Award’ This is the most prestigious award that any pupil at Brownlow Fold can achieve and involves a considerable amount of hard work, dedication and commitment from the pupil that extends beyond the school day. This award is designed to encourage our pupils to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills. We recognise the importance in supporting our children to become life-long learners and, in line with our whole school behaviour policy, focus on the development of developing the whole child which includes behaviour for learning.
Wellbeing Award at Brownlow Fold
At Brownlow Fold we believe good emotional wellbeing and mental health should be at the heart of our culture and ethos as a school, so that pupils, with the support of our teachers, can build confidence and flourish. Evidence shows us that wellbeing is of central importance to learning and attainment, with high levels of wellbeing associated with improved academic outcomes.
