Dear Parents

Welcome to Isambard Brunel Junior School and our website.

I hope you find the information in here helpful and that it begins to answer some of the many questions I expect you have about who we are and what we do. If we’ve missed anything out, please let us know so that we can include it in our next update.

I really believe in parents and schools working together. It is a privilege to care for and educate your children. We take that responsibility very seriously. However we only have them for a short time each day and I know that without your support and understanding, we cannot do well. So if there is anything you are not happy or worried about please come in and speak to one of us. We will either explain to you what is happening (and why!) or try to put things right. If you want to speak to me in person, please do: if I am not available when you come in, then the office will make you an appointment as soon as possible.

And if everything is going well, please let us know about that too!
I really do hope your child does well at Brunel and enjoys their time here.

Yours sincerely


Iain Gilmour
