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)
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.
Congratulations to Mrs Smith's class in KS1 and Mrs Heaps' class in KS2. They have both been awarded the half termly star attendance trophy for the best
attendance percentages. Mrs Heaps' class achieved an amazing 97.9% and Mrs Smith's class a whopping 98.9%. Our school target is 96.5 % .
Each half term we have an assembly to celebrate and award the winning class with our special attendance 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.
