Welcome to Brackensdale Spencer Academy
At Brackensdale Spencer Academy, we are committed to providing a high-quality of education for all children and a caring ethos in which each individual achieves their full potential. We teach this through our 3 values which are woven into everything that we do at school. You will hear the children and adults referring to them regularly throughout the day.
A ‘Brackensdale education’ is about developing the whole child and providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom. Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on maintaining positive relationships with home.
We are proud of our Enhanced Resource unit, made up of the Ark (EYFS and KS1) and the Phoenix (KS2), which caters for children who require specialist provision around communication and interaction, primarily children with ASD.
In addition to being a highly valued local school, Brackensdale Spencer Academy provides a professional learning community for teachers, parents and carers. Working to provide an exemplary education for local children, we partner with local schools; community groups and other education providers under the umbrella of The Spencer Academies Trust.
As part of our Goldilocks focus, we made and tasted porridge. We decoded to read a jumbled up recipe, sequenced it and followed it to make our own. We used adjectives to talk about the texture and taste, and compared it to the porridge in the story #shinebright @BrackensdaleS pic.twitter.com/DXpgeja99p
Year 1 have celebrated the end of their work on The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers. They have innovated the story and had a space themed afternoon making rockets and alien masks. It was lovely to see such big smiles on their faces! @BrackensdaleS #shinebright pic.twitter.com/g77e7lm4wT
