Learning, Achievement, Success
Welcome to Clipstone Brook Lower School
Welcome to Clipstone Brook Lower School.
I am really proud to be the Head of our School. It is a friendly, nurturing community school thanks to the dedicated, caring and motivated staff.
The school is set in lovely grounds with three playgrounds – one for each key stage. Within the grounds we have an allotment, living willow and a pond / outside learning environment. In the warmer weather all of the children are able to play on the field.
We offer spaces to children from Nursery/ Foundation Stage up to year Four when they move onto middle school.
We are passionate about each individual child achieving their full potential aiming to meet the individual needs of them all ranging from SEN to Gifted and Talented.
Our pastoral care and support are ‘Outstanding’. We run support groups for the children who need extra assistance with learning or social emotional issues.
Please spend time looking at our web site which will give you a flavour of our school. You are welcome to visit us at any time by making an appointment via the school office. It will give us great pleasure to show you around our lovely school.

SCHOOL CLOSURE SYSTEM
Any decision to close the school as a result of severe weather will be taken based on local conditions and guidance from the local authority. Where possible we will give you advanced warning.
To help you know what is happening Central Bedfordshire Council has an information service known as “SOS”. Parents are able to sign up to this service to receive important information about school closures. To register for the service visit www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/webApps/SOS and follow the links. The site will inform you of closures at all Central Bedfordshire schools, if you request them.
Three Counties and Heart Radio will also issue school closure notices. You can either listen in or access the radio stations’ websites. Please DO NOT call the radio stations to find out about school closures.
In addition, we will use our Groupcall system to email and text details of closures. Please ensure we have up to date contact details from you for this system to work.
