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)

Amazing Attendance

Congratulations to Mrs Smith's class in KS1 and Mr Yates' class in KS2. They have both been awarded the half termly star attendance trophy for the best attendance percentages. Mr Yates' class achieved an amazing 98% and Mrs Smith's class 97.8%. Our school target is 96.5 % and all classes last half time exceeded this.
Each half term we have an assembly to celebrate and award the winning class with our special attedance trophies. Check your child's classroom door to find out their actual percentage - these are updated half termly and the winning classes also get a gold star on their class door too.
There is a special display in the hall to celebrate the class with the highest percentage and also to educate pupils on the importance of attending school when well enough to do so.
Keep up the great work and let's see if we can get an even higher percentage this half term.

Bradway Values

Happy New Year to you all!

As you will be aware we have been working closely with all members of our school community to develop a set of core values to underpin our school ethos and aims. We had a whole school values morning back in October when all pupils worked in cross phases to come up with six values most important to them. The children voted and the results are in the table below. Once children had voted we then took on the views of staff and our lunchtime supervisors. During our recent parental consultation evenings, parents were invited to vote for the values they felt were most important to teach and develop within school and of course we consulted with our Governors.
As the table below shows there were many similarities in the votes cast.

Pupils                                   Staff                    Lunchtime Supervisors  Parents   Governors 
Honesty
Respect
Friendship
Happiness
Determination
Co-operation

Respect

Trust
Kindness
Co-operation
 
 
       
The six values chosen are:
Respect
Co-operation
Honesty
Positivity
Responsibility
Friendship

We are now working on dividing the values in to the six half terms, making links to existing Learning for Life (L4L) sessions and key events in our school calendar. We also want to make  links, where applicable to the five 'British Values' which are:
Democracy
Rule of law
Individual liberty
Mutual respect
Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

As soon as we have done this we will let you know. 
Once we are up and running we will let you know at the beginning of each term which value is being introduced.

Thank you to all those who voted and we do hope you agree with the final six :-)

Welcome back

Reading at home is so important!

Welcome back to all of our children, parents and carers.

I have had lots of children coming to see me today to claim a prize from my treasure chest for finishing their reading record. Clearly more children than ever are reading at home. Well done! Research shows that learning to read and maintaining a reading habit is a strong predictor of future success in life which is why we place such importance on reading at home as well as at school.

I still read every day, as do many of the staff at Bradway and at the moment I am reading 'The History of Jazz' by Ted Gioia.
Mrs Cooper is reading a book called 'The other child' by Charlotte Link.
Mrs Cox is reading 'Flood of Fire' by Amitav Ghosh


Below: the reading treasure chest!


If you haven't already done it, please could you give your opinion of our school by completing the brief questionniare on parentview using the following link: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/login?destination=give-your-views

Parentview is a useful way for schools to get feedback from parents and is also used by Ofsted to determine what parents think of our school.
Many thanks
Paul Stockley
