Welcome to Brimington Manor Infant and Nursery School’s website.

We are all very proud of our school and school community. We have children who have fun and achieve well and staff who are committed and highly professional. Brimington Manor Infant and Nursery School is a good place to be! The whole school works together to make it a happy, friendly place. As one parent said  in our last questionnaire ’it’s just like a little family.’ Children enjoy coming to school and are enthusiastic and eager to learn.

All of our staff want the best for our children. They strive hard to provide a purposeful, creative curriculum; that motivates children and gives them an excellent foundation. They strive for children to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum, develop their unique talents and be prepared to manage the challenges and opportunities of their future lives.

Our parents/guardians are very supportive. They involve themselves in the life of the school and the development and education of their children. The local community is eager to help and enrich our curriculum. Our Governors (or as we call them ’School Champions’) are an important part of school life, being very supportive and working well to provide the best for our pupils.

We look forward to working in partnership with you.

Brimington Manor Infant have been successful in receiving a National Lottery grant. The funding has supported people across our community, helping improve health and wellbeing. The funding grant has allowed us to deliver a wide range of activities to develop physical fitness and also a variety of creative arts activities helping support mental health and emotional resilience. Cooking tuition activities have also been delivered, helping people enhance their culinary knowledge and dietary awareness, improving cooking confidence for healthy meal options to be replicated at home.

Our commitment to Safeguarding


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All Staff are employed subject to a DBS check and undergo Safeguarding training prior to starting their role. There is annual Safeguarding training for all staff.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Safeguarding section of our website.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard using our secure online system CPOMS. The concern will also be reported to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day.

If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to one of the DSLs or Headteacher in confidence. If the concern relates to the headteacher this will be reported to the Trust. Concerns regarding members of staff may be reported to the LADO.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead s (DSLs) shared below.

As a result of internal audit and DfE recommendations, the school has directly adopted the LA Safeguarding policy and any school specific information is contained within the safeguarding poster below.
