Welcome to Bradway Primary

Welcome to Bradway Primary School. I have been Headteacher at this school since 2002 and during that time there have been many changes in education. Through all these changes we have held true to two basic beliefs and principles about what makes a good school and a good learner. Firstly, our school motto, 'Learning Through Enjoyment' highlights the importance we place on ensuring that Bradway Primary school is a happy place to be and that the content of the curriculum is stimulating, relevant and engaging for our pupils.

Our success in achieving this culture in school is supported by the fact that in our last three inspections we have been rated as 'outstanding' for our curriculum by Ofsted. (Read More)

Anti Bullying Week 16th - 20th November 2015

This week in school we are taking part in Anti Bullying week.  

The key aims of the week are...

  • To empower children and young people to make a noise about bullying – whether it is happening to them or to someone else, face to face or online;
  • To help parents and carers have conversations with their children about bullying – both as a way of preventing bullying, and to help children who are worried about bullying;
  • To encourage ‘talking schools’ where all children and young people are given a safe space to discuss bullying and other issues that affect their lives, and are supported to report all forms of bullying;
  • To equip teachers to respond effectively when children tell them they’re being bullied; and
  • To raise awareness of the impact of bullying on children’s lives if they don’t tell anyone it’s happening – or if they are not given appropriate support – with a focus on the impact on mental health.
We have delivered assemblies this morning to both Key Stages and will be working on the above aims through our L4L (learning for life )sessions this week.

For  further information, downloadable resources and handy hints please visit :


As always if you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact  school.

E-Safety Questionnaire Summary For Key Stage 1 & 2 2015


At the beginning of term every pupil from Year 1 to Year 6 completed an e-safety questionnaire (an example of the questionnaires can be viewed on our school website). A parental workshop was organised for October and the key findings of the questionnaires were shared as well as helpful hints on how to support your child at home. 

For those unable to attend the key findings of our pupil e-safety questionnaires are as follows (a paper copy will be sent to all parents this

week alongside an e-safety parental help sheet) :

Key Stage 1

  • Pupils in KS1 access the internet through a variety of different means – laptops, tablets, mobile phones & games consoles.
  • Pupils use the internet in a variety of different ways including research, gaming, video sites including, skype, to help with homework, apps.
  • The most popular game is in KS1 Minecraft although six pupils did tick CoD & GTA.
  • 78% of KS1 pupils have to ask an adult before going online
  • 30% of KS1 pupils talk online with their friends, 3 pupils ticked that they talked to people they do not know in real life.
  • 2 pupils ticked that they had given their name, address, telephone number or photo to someone on the internet they did not know.
  • 100% of KS1 pupils answered no when asked if they had been bullied on the internet.
  • When asked who taught them how to stay safe online, pupils ticked parents and school although 34 pupils said they did not know how to keep safe on the internet.

Key Stage 2

  • Pupils in KS2 access the internet through a variety of different means – laptops, tablets, mobile phones & games consoles.
  • 49 pupils access the internet from their bedroom.
  • 62 pupils access the interent on a mobile device
  • 173 pupils access the internet via an Ipad, Ipod or tablet.
  • 97 pupils do not need to ask an adult before they use the internet
  • 28 pupils said that their parents never check what they are doing on the internet, 34 children said that their parents always check and 111 said sometimes.
  • 48 pupils said that there parents did not talk to them about staying safe online, 25 said a lot and 108 pupils said a bit.
  • The most popular uses of the internet in KS2 are to help with school, apps for games, instagrram, snapchat, chat apps, videos, tv and music, facebook, facetime, Minecraft, online gaming.
  • 3 pupils said they had a facebook account
  • 13 pupils said that they chatted online to people they did know
  • 18 pupils said they chatted to people they did not know while online gaming.
  • 32 pupils said they use a webcam when they are chatting online.
  • 25 pupils said they would accept a friend request from someone they did not know.
  • 43 pupils have have friends online they have not met before.
  • 35 pupils have given personal details to someone on the internet that they have not met in real life.
  • 2 pupils said they had been to meet someone who they had met online, 1 child ticked that they went on their own. Fortunately both people were who the children expected them to be.
  • 24 pupils said that they had experienced on-line bullying. 11 pupils knew the person who was bullying. 23 of these pupils told their parents or family member , 4 told an adult in school and 6 pupils knew how to report the incidents online.
  • 159 pupils ticked that they did think of their personal safety when online.
  • Pupils in KS2 worry about seeing images online that make them feel uncomfortable, cyberbullying, people lying about their identity, hackers, someone using their identity, people sending videos or pictures without their permission, getting messages from people they do not know.
  • 90% of pupils felt school teaches them enough about how to stay safe online, 10% did not.
  • Pupils felt that they could get information from school and parents about keeping safe online.
As you can see the questionnaires have highlighted both positive and negative aspects of our pupils’ online usage. Each year group have been given their specific questionnaire results and the issues raised will be addressed through L4L sessions and through our e-safety curriculum. However, it is essential that these same messages are supported at home to ensure we are working together to safeguard your children when online.

With this in mind we have produced an on-line safety booklet with helpful hints and tips on keeping your child safe.
The following websites are also extremely helpful:




And of course please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you have any further questions or concerns regarding e-safety.   

Kind regards and many thanks in advance for your support.

E-safety Parental Workshop

Thank you to all those parents who attended tonight's fantastic workshop run by Julia Codman, Sheffield's E-safety project manager. Those who attended were incredibly positive about the evening and we as a school are keen to inform as many parents as possible about the content of the workshop. 

We have links on our school website to many of the websites shown tonight and I will shortly be posting the key findings from our own pupil e-safety questionnaires as they make for very interesting viewing. 

With technology playing an ever increasing part  in our children's lives it is important that we work together to safeguard and educate our children of the risks they can face when online. We  have a robust e-safety curriculum in school but this can only be successful if the messages given in school are supported at home. The workshop this evening highlighted the risks and gave practical help and advice. 

We will be looking to run another workshop in the near future and very much hope to see you there.

Please do look out for the summary of our own questionnaires and please do come in to school to see us if you have any e-safety concerns.
