Brightside Nursey Infant School is over 120 years old and is situated on the eastern edge of Sheffield, overlooking the Meadowhall Shopping Centre.
The school is somewhat separated from its catchment by a busy road, and serves an area of privately owned and rented accomodation.
We have a wildlife garden which the children enjoy. We grow fruit and vegetables of all varieties, and we all enjoy, looking for mini beasts and different kinds of plants.
Brightside Nursery Infant school is a large stone built school with a separate Nursery/Childrens centre building which has its own playground. School has a large yard to play in at break times.
'We like to play in our little wooden houses and swing on the bars. We use the yard and the grass behind school for P.E.when the weather isn't too bad.'
Our Mission Statement
At Brightside NI school we will provide a safe, secure, clean, bright and well resourced environment. All our children will be happy, well behaved and reach their potential in all aspects of their development.
We will plan and deliver a personalised curriculum, based on first hand experience which recognises and builds on the talents of each child. Our curriculum will place importance on: creativity, encouraging our children to think and solve problems; speaking and listening to encourage confident verbal communication; personal, social and emotional education to help our children value friendship, relationships and develop responsibility as future adult citizens; embedding information technology into all aspects of school life to enable our children to use new technology as a valuable learning tool.
Our staff will be excellent role models as life long learners through continuous professional development, enabling us to become a forward thinking, innovative school, striving for continuous improvement.
Brightside Nursery Infant School will support the local community and encourage the community to see the school as an important part of its life.
