Welcome to our school
The Brookfield School part of Hereford Integrated Behaviour Outreach Service became an Academy on 1st October 2014.
The Brookfield is a maintained school, opened in January 2001, providing specialist education for pupils in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 (7-16) all of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Need. Student's primary needs are identified as behavioural, social and emotional difficulties (BSED), with additional complex needs such as Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and Semantic Pragmatic Disorder.
There are currently 78 students on roll including the "Intervention Group' of 16 students attending from mainstream schools who are in danger of permanent exclusion. Students attending the school come from a wide catchment area around the city of Hereford and are transported from home to school on the schools own mini buses. The school also has out of county placements.
There is also an off site unit (The Arrow group) consisting of secondary age students with a history of very challenging behaviour and poor attendance.
The school was last inspected by Ofsted in June 2010, when it was judged to be outstanding. The report finds that 'The Brookfield is an outstanding school which has further improved its provision and the pupils achievements since the previous inspection when it was judged outstanding in almost every category'.
The school is part of a "pyramid" cluster of local mainstream schools: Stretton Sugwas Primary school, Burghill Primary school, Holmer Primary school, Trinity Primary school, Lord Scudamore Primary school and Whitecross High School.
