The Brier School is a happy school where we are committed to putting the children at the heart of everything we do. Our children thrive in this positive environment; as our OFSTED inspections reported:

"Opportunities for pupils to share their education with their peers from mainstream schools are outstanding, resulting in a very high proportion of pupils working in a range of settings."

"Their [the pupils] enjoyment in learning is outstanding and is a major strength of the school."

"They show outstanding levels of enthusiasm for learning, and say "we have fun at school."

"There is a great sense of community in the school.  The staff and pupils work together as a team to create a very positive environment in which to learn and develop. There is a sense of unity which points strongly  towards a school that nurtures its pupils and provides ample opportunity for them to develop as individuals within a community.In these many ways the school is very successful in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the school. As a result, the pupils live and learn in an environment which is safe  and secure and which is free from oppressive behaviour."
