Welcome to Bradway Primary

Our school value this half term (Summer 2) is friendship .

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 that 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 Ofsted have particularly commented on the quality of our curriculum. (Read More)

Carnival Time!

Bradway was transformed into a carnival hot spot yesterday as 420 children took the party on to the streets! Dressed in colourful clothes with masks and homemade percussion instruments, they were an unforgettable sight as they walked the streets around our school. Thanks to the many residents who came out to cheer us on and thanks also to a reclusive entity, not often seen in these parts: the sun, which came out especially for us!

Exciting Enterprise

Thanks to all the parents and carers who turned up to our brilliant Enterprise Market last week. Over £2000 was raised so well done everybody for manufacturing and marketing such an excellent range of products. So much was learnt and it really was 'Learning Through Enjoyment!' The year group which raised the most was Year 6, with over £500, which will come as no surprise to anyone who was collared by one of their travelling sales people!

The choir did a great job of entertaining us.

Anyone for some shiny coloured nails?

Thank you to parents and a message about Sports Days

Thank you to all of our parents for being so co-operative and supportive on Monday when we had to close the school. A gas leak was detected by a member of staff in the Year 5 and 6 block and soon after the decision was made to close the school as a precautionary measure. The decision to close was backed up by the gas engineers when they arrived since a whole school review of gas appliances then had to take place.

Infant Sports day unfortunately had to be postponed as a result of the school's closure and has been rescheduled for Monday 4th July at 1.30pm. Junior sports day will go ahead tomorrow, Thursday 23rd June, at 1.30pm, weather permitting! We hope to see many of you there.
As always we would ask you not to drive down Bradway Drive, particularly because the referendum is taking place. Please take extra care on the drive as there will be increased traffic in and out of school all day as voting takes place in the Scout Hall.
