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)

Friends of Bradway Primary School will also be holding a coffee morning on Friday 9th October 2015 from 9am to 10am in the school hall. You can take advantage of this time and browse through all the books whilst your child is in class. If you have any pre-school children please bring them along with you.

From any sales we are able to make, we receive a generous percentage of free books which we `feed’ into each class. Hopefully this will be a successful event for all.

Bradway Primary is thinking of joining a Trust!

Why we are thinking of becoming a Trust school.

 Hopefully parents and others in our local community will have recently received a copy of a leaflet (see image below) outlining Bradway's plans to join a newly formed Co-operative Trust called Synergy Learning Trust, together with up to seven other local schools.

Recent governments have made many far reaching changes to the way that education is organised in England and you may have read about some of these changes in the media. In this context of rapid change we have considered various options for the future, including the option of remaining as an individual school, becoming an academy or becoming a Trust school. A number of factors have contributed to our decision to apply for Trust status with the main one being the desire for greater collaboration between schools in the area without leaving Local Authority control and without losing our school's individuality.

What are the benefits of Trust status?

By establishing a formal structure in this way we believe that standards will rise as each school benefits from being part of a larger partnership. In addition our collective purchasing power will result in lower prices for goods and services. We already work together with many of the proposed Trust schools but we aim to deepen and develop our links with them through a co-ordinated strategy led by the members of a new Trust Board. This board would be comprised of representatives from all the schools.
I hope that you will support our plans to become part of Synergy Learning Trust. If you have any questions or feedback, or if you would just like to find out more, please do attend the consultation meetings outlined in the leaflet.
Very best wishes,
Paul Stockley
