Pupils are admitted to the school by the South Eastern Education and Library Board in accordance with the regulations and procedures laid down by Articles 29-33 of the Education and Libraries Order 1986 (NI). Pupils who are enrolled already have a statement of special educational needs. New pupils and their parents are invited for interview prior to enrolment.


Our teaching staff have experience and knowledge of teaching children who have moderate learning difficulties. In each class there are 12 children or less and close attention can be paid to each individual pupil’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.





Nursery and Years 1 – 3: 8.45 a.m. to 1.45 p.m.


Years 4 – 7: 8.45 a.m. to 3.00 p.m.


Pupils are received from 8.40 a.m.


There is no supervision available before this time.



We encourage our pupils to be




 respectful of others.


In school we promote team spirit as well as individual achievement. We encourage each pupil to develop high standards of personal behaviour.


As parents we would ask you to help us by:




·       supporting the maintenance of good discipline in school and promoting in your child good codes of conduct with regard to behaviour, uniform and homework;


·       ensuring your child attends school regularly and brings the necessary equipment;


·       developing and maintaining channels of communication with school.




We devise an individual support plan for any pupil having consistent difficulties in managing their behaviour.



















Be kind


Be happy


Be well behaved


Keep ourselves and others safe


Listen carefully


Do our best in class


We do not accept: Bullying, stealing, bad language, fighting, destruction of property, attacks on others. Teachers use the school rules to agree with the pupils a set of rules for the classroom.






All pupils are transported to and from school by S.E.E.L.B. Details of travel arrangements are forwarded by the Transport Officer to parents at the beginning of each school year.




Transport Office Telephone number: 028 90566570.

















If there is a change to transport due to an unforeseen circumstance, please contact the school secretary Mrs Mc Dowall.


Parents must inform the Transport Office and the school secretary of any change of address.


To ensure a pleasant and safe journey to and from school, good behaviour on transport is encouraged. Children should remain seated until they have reached their destination and the bus/taxi has stopped. In the interests of safety, parents wishing to collect their child at or before 3 p.m. should inform the class teacher in writing.








At Brookfield we seek to promote real and ongoing communication between home and school as a vital component of each child developing his/her potential. We have an open - door policy to allow parents ease of access to Principal and teachers. If parents have any queries or concerns they may contact the Principal by phone or an interview will be arranged.















There are also more formal interviews: pre-admission;  ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening; annual initial meeting with teacher ; Annual Review.


Parents receive a prospectus annually and a termly newsletter from the Principal. (Copies of our Home-School Liaison Programme are available from the office)
