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.

After a fantastic end to our summer term we now wish all our children and families a wonderful summer holiday. If anyone goes to the beach I have
provided you with a suggested design for your sandcastle! Good luck and have fun. See you all back at school on Thursday 3rd September.
Much fun was had last Friday at our circus Picnic afternoon! With our very own trapeze artist, clowns and pupil performers the school was treated to a
wonderful afternoon of entertainment followed by a picnic. The weather was beautiful and the support from parents magnificent. Well done
Yesterday, a librarian from Totley Library, came to talk to the KS2 children about the Summer Reading Challenge.
The Summer Reading Challenge theme this year is Record Breaker. This will bring together the worlds of fact and fiction, challenging young readers to explore some of the astonishing real-life achievements and world records featured in the Guinness World Records Books.
The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged four to eleven and takes place during the summer holidays. Children can sign up at their local library, then just read six library books. Collecting stickers as they go, young readers will discover weird, wonderful and wacky records from around the world with a certificate with medal at the end of the challenge -all FREE.
You can go to any UK library running the Summer Reading Challenge and you don’t have to keep going to the same library. So if you are on holiday in the UK your child should still be able to keep up with the Challenge.
To all parents and carers of cast members.
Please note that all children need to arrive at school for 6pm tomorrow and Thursday in order to allow for dressing and make-up. Children should be dropped at the old library entrance. All children need to bring a water bottle with them on the night. Parents and carers should then enter through the main entrance from 6.30pm onwards. Entrance is by ticket only. There are still one or two tickets available for the Wednesday night. Programmes will be on sale for 50p. Friends of Bradway School will be serving refreshments on the night. Please wear something cool as it is likely to be very warm in the hall. If you are not staying to watch on either of the evenings the show should end around 8.20pm so aim to pick your child up from the old library entrance at 8.30pm.
Please note that due to copyright licencing videoing or taking photographs during the performances is not allowed. There will be a chance at the end of each performance to take photos.
It is difficult to list all the positive aspects of life at Bradway but they would include: Creativity, the child as a whole person, responsibility, positive atmosphere: there are many more." - Parent
