Pupil Questionnaires

Our pupils have completed their own questionnaire about life at Broadbent Fold. Please see the pupil section of the website, for the full details. The results are very positive and show that pupils are happy and feel safe. The two areas of focus for us are:

  • Ensuring they feel challenged.
  • That behaviour of other pupils improves. 

I am meeting with our pupil leadership team to discuss these issues and look at developments with pupil support. I shall keep you all informed. 

Football Champions

Thank you to our year 6 football stars! We attended an event today at the Etihad and we truly displayed huge amounts of passion and teamwork. I was bursting with pride. Well done to you all and especially to Captain Riley, your leadership skills shone through! 

Super learner!

I just wanted to say a huge well done to Isaac Inglis. Who has been producing outstanding work at home and school. I have loved seeing your writing and the amazing pictures of your family. You should be very proud! 

Christmas Card Competition.

Our Pupil Leadership Team have been working with Councillor John Taylor to create a wonderful card for Dukinfield residents. They did an amazing job and I would like to thank Luca Ovenden-Edwards and Alex Cragg for their hard work choosing the winners. Two winners from each class will receive a prize, but the overall winner is Harriet Stafford in Year 5. Her drawing of Dukinfield Town Hall was magical. Keep an eye out of the card being sent to homes and for the Reporter newspaper, where her success will be celebrated. 

Curling Olympians!

A huge well done to our curling stars. Charley Doran for showing 'passion', which is a key sporting value and Jenson Wardhaugh for being the 'Star'. This is a new sport to Broadbent Fold and our school are very proud of your achievements. I am looking for a whole school event in this - possibly find more future champions.

Great Expectations.

Well done to Cerys Clayton and Lolly Atkins who have received my certificate for following our school expectations. They have been using manners, showing respect and listening very well. Also, the winner of our Dukinfield Christmas card competition is Harriet Stafford. Well done Harriet, your card has been chosen by our pupil leadership team and Councillor John Taylor to represent Dukinfield at Christmas time. We are all very impressed with your art skills and we cannot wait to see it. 


What a yummy end to our week. Thank you for making our Macmillan event scrummdillyumptious and thank you to Mrs Butler for organising it. We rasied over £480 which is amazing, so well done to you all.

My certificates this week have gone to Heidi Thomas and Sophia Evetts - for trying their best everyday and making their teachers smile. Keep this up. 

Well done!

I would firstly like to say a huge well done to Jessica Lees and Xander Conway for displaying role-model behaviour in school and at lunchtimes. Keep on being brilliant.

I would also like to say what a fantastic job our girls and boys did playing football last week. I was so impressed with your level of skill and you worked together so well as a team. 

Keep this up!!

Great First Week.

Well done to everyone for making the first week back so successful and positive. A special well done to Oliver Simpson in year 6 and Evan Brookes in year 3. They received a certificate for their excellent behaviour and attitude displayed around school. Keep this up! I am very impressed and proud.
