Broadbent Fold Primary and Nursery School is an exciting, stimulating and inclusive place to work and learn. 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 pride ourselves on having a rich and challenging curriculum that will engage our learners, ensure they make good progress and foster lifelong learning skills.

Phonics is taught in EYFS and Key Stage 1, following the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme. This supports the teaching of reading and early spelling. The children take part in a variety of games and activities in order to practise reading and writing new and key words.
Guided reading happens daily and involves a mixture of group reading with a teacher or teaching assistant. Independent reading and activities are related to the guided reading books and phonics. Children are also heard reading independently by other adults in school and in Key Stage 2 have a reading buddy. Reading schemes used at Broadbent Fold include: Phonics Bug, Big Cat Phonics and the Oxford Reading Tree.
