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. 


Pupil Leaders and Safeguarding!

Another important task for the Pupil Leaders!  They met with Mrs Parker to discuss some key questions about Safeguarding in school.   The team's responses were impressive and sensible - it is clear that the children understand the importance of Safeguarding at Broadbent Fold.  The Pupil Leaders talked about the various lessons they take part in to learn how to be safe, such as online safety, anti-bullying, Bikeability and PSHE sessions, as well as the steps that all staff take to keep everyone safe.  This will be followed up in class when the Pupil Leaders will ask their peers for feedback.


Busy Pupil Leaders!

Our Pupil Leadership team have been extremely busy lately with importants tasks for their classes.  Firstly, they met to go through all of the reward suggestions for the weekly winners of  House Team star points.  There were a lot of suggestions from each class!  They also had to choose from the ideas for termly winners.  A movie afternoon was very popular for that!  Their next task was to choose the winners of the Space Poem competition!  Miss Harvey received so many entries from each class so this was a difficult task.  They finally decided on the winners who have now been announced!  Wel


Reading for all!

Pupil Leaders met with the Reading Ambassadors and Mrs Parker this week to discuss our school's amazing success in reading.  She found out how much children enjoy their teachers reading to them and how they use their reading areas.  They also discussed how the children choose to read a whole range of genres, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry!   They all agreed how important reading is, whether it be to learn new things, or simply just for pleasure.  Mrs Blomeley


Pupil Voice - House Team prizes!

The Pupil Leadership team met this week to discuss prizes for the House team winners!  Our new system means that any star points children earn will be added to their group - Amber, Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald - whilst also still counting towards receiving a Bronze, Silver or Gold award.  This is encouraging a great team effort!  The Pupil Leaders shared this request with their classes and asked them to return the idea sheet by next Wednesday!  The Pupil Leaders will then share their ideas and pass on their favourites to Mrs Parker!  


New Pupil Leaders

Our new Pupil Leadership has been voted for by each class. Our leaders are essential in supporting Mrs Parker with school developments. They met today to discuss our Anti-bullying policy and made some valuable contributions.  


Our Roof is Complete.

Mr Daniel Parker the Executive at Crescent Roofing came today in assembly to share photos of the whole process. This was fascinating for our pupils and inspired a couple to want to be a roofer! We were also lucky to get drone footage of the school, which the pupils loved. Let's hope that it will last us, so we no longer need any more pots of pans! Our Pupil Leaders had some great questions, which Daniel answered and gave us more detail of the whole process. Well done to our leaders, you always make me proud. 


Pupil Leaders greet the Civic Mayor of Tameside!

The Pupil Leaders had a very important job on Tuesday!  They had to greet The Civic Mayor of Tameside who was visiting Broadbent Fold to recognise Year 6's hard work to achieve their Arts Awards.  The certificates were handed to the Year 6 children in an assembly.  The Pupil Leaders did an amazing job, welcoming Madam Mayor nd Mr Consort into our school.  After the assembly, they visited all the classrooms and were very impressed!  They said our school has a lovely feel!  It is true!  Mrs Blomeley


New to BBF - Wellbeing Wednesdays!

Our Pupil Leaders have decided that every Wednesday is a wellbeing 'check-in' day. On Wellbeing Wednesday we take time to chat, to do yoga, meditation and share things on our mind. Staff and pupils are joining in with these special days every week. Join in at home too and talk to each other. 


Pupil Leaders meet the Chair of Governors!

This week, the Pupil Leadership Team met with Bob, our Chair of Governors, to update him on their activities so far in the school year.  These ranged from choosing the items for UNICEF, following last year's Sponsored Silence; helping to promote ideas to gain the school's Gold Healthy Eating Award; to analysing answers from the recent questionnaire completed by the whole school.  Bob was very impressed by their confidence and leadership skills and was delighted with our school's Pupil Voice!  Their next task is to look at ideas for lunchtime clubs - watch this space!
