School Attendance

We are working very hard with our pupils and families to improve school attendance. We are now monitoring which classes have the best attendance. This week year 4 won with 98% - well done superstars! 

Remembrance Sunday

Thank you for all your support with this year's Poppy Appeal. Yesterday Xavier and his family with our governor Mr Moon lay a wreath at the Chapel Hill War Memorial. Thank you for attending this on behalf of Broadbent Fold Primary School and Nursery. School will continue to support the Royal British Legion and the charity work they do in our community.

Anti-Bullying Week 2022

The theme for this week is Reach Out. This theme empowers the community to do something positive to counter the harm and hurt that bullying causes. We have also completed our Speak Out Stay Safe Assemblies with the NSPCC, which generated lots of discussion about abuse - It is not okay! Well done Broadbent Fold. 

Hummingbird Project

Today the Hummingbird Project started in year 5 and 6. This is a 6-week Positive Education intervention, designed to give students the tools they need to be as happy, healthy, and productive as possible. It involves hour-long workshops, in which students learn about happiness, mindfulness, gratitude, kindness, character strengths, and resilience, and take part in fun activities that help them to understand how to put these ideas into practice. 

Afternoon Tea with Mrs Parker

These wonderful role models have been green all term and enjoyed afternoon tea with me. I loved it and we ate too much chocolate cake.Well done to everyone who has also been green - maybe next time it will be you!  

Reading Competition.

Today we had a wonderful surprise visit from Ms Lund the Assistant Headteacher at Rayner Stephens. She presented Sam with 8 books for winning a competition set on their Open Evening. Sam loves reading and this is the perfect prize for him. Out of 10, Sam said this was 11! Thank you to Rayner Stephens. 

Phonics Workshop

Today we held a phonics workshop for Nursery and Reception families. This had an autumnal feel to it and was wonderful to see families learning phonemes and reading together.
