Meet the Team

We are extremely proud of our team at Bracken, the majority of whom have been with us for many years. At our recent Ofsted inspection the quality of teaching was rated as outstanding and the staff were complimented on promoting the children’s well-being and taking all the necessary steps to keep them feeling safe and secure.

Keyworker System

We operate a keyworker system. Our desire is to consider every child individually and our key worker system helps to ensure this. It allows us to support moral, social, intellectual, emotional and physical development in a caring and nurturing manor. Our key worker system allows individual members of staff to focus on children to enhance our philosophy and ethos and allows us to aid child development through praise and encouragement.
