Our Mission

Gilbrook School where brighter futures are nurtured

1  Nurturing

Our therapeutic approach changes childrens’ lives. We offer a nurturing environment that supports young people to develop the skills of independence, care and compassion, giving them improved life chances.

2   Positive

We always have a positive outlook. We promote the positive attributes in our young people of resilience, confidence, optimism and most importantly a positive mind-set. We provide appropriate challenges and celebrate all achievements.

3   Understanding

We know our school community well. We continuously develop our understanding of our pupils’ individual needs, recognising and celebrating diversity in order to ensure that everyone’s well-being is paramount.

4   Aspirational

Our aspiration is to reach for the stars. High aspirations are a key factor as we focus our efforts on providing appropriate and ambitious targets for all young people.

5   Relationships

Inclusive relationships are our strength. We strive to build productive relationships with everybody during every interaction and treat everyone with dignity and respect.
