Dear Parent/Carer,

On Wednesday 14th December the school will be having Christmas lunch. The children look

Those children who are already on school dinners will receive their Christmas meal and do

not need to complete the form below.

Children in Nursery (on Wraparound), Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 who normally have

a packed lunch may choose to have a Christmas meal on the 14th December and if this is

the case then please note the following:

Christmas meals must be ordered in advance (please return the slip below to the school

Broadbent Fold

Broadbent Fold Primary and Nursery School is an exciting, stimulating and inclusive place to work and learn. The school has been educating pupils for over forty years and we are proud to be at the heart of our community. The children are central to every decision and opportunity we offer and they play a major role in designing our curriculum. Working in partnership with parents and other outside agencies to ensure the best possible support and outcomes for children is Broadbent Fold’s number one priority. The Broadbent Fold curriculum is a strength of the school and inspires pupils to learn. The wide range of subjects help pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in all aspects of their education.

We are a happy and active school who place a very high value on high standards and excellent behaviour. We wish our children to be happy and enjoy their learning in an environment that caters for all and respects others. We place a great deal of value on the children enjoying education, so, trips, visitors, exciting lessons and activities will be common place. I know the children will thoroughly enjoy the journey! I hope that as a parent at Broadbent Fold you find the experience a fulfilling one and you feel involved in the process of your child’s education. There is nothing more important than our children.

We work together to ensure children get the best and leave Broadbent Fold as well rounded successful citizens of the future. 

Why not visit us and experience Broadbent Fold  for yourself? I would be delighted to show you around.
