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)

Think before you park in Bradway

Calling all Parents and Carers!

We have had three complaints from local residents over the past two weeks, expressing their concerns about inconsiderate or illegal parking around the school. Bradway Close and Kenwell Drive residents are reporting that parents of our school are ignoring parking restrictions such as single yellow lines, with cars even parking right next to restriction signs. In addition local residents are finding it difficult to park their own cars and, at times, they have been blocked into their own drives by cars parked by parents at this school.
Inconsiderate parking, wherever it occurs, leads to inconvenience, but it also compromises the safety of the children at our school by creating blind spots and obstructions. The local community would be very grateful, as would the school, if you could help us to improve the situation by respecting the parking restrictions. 
Don't forget that you can park in the nearby Mother Redcap pub car park, as we have an arrangement with the owners.
Please note that the photographs below are not from Bradway, but they do show how bad parking can be!

Thank you for your support and co-operation.

Anti - Bullying Week 17th - 21st November 2014

This week,  Bradway Primary School will be supporting the Anti Bullying Alliance's (ABA) Anti Bullying Week.Every year  ABA  coordinate national Anti-Bullying Week; a week where children and young people, schools, parents and carers come together with one aim: to stop bullying for all.

This year they are calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people – including disabled children and those with special educational needs – children who are significantly more likely to experience bullying in schools and the wider community.

Anti-Bullying Week provides an opportunity for us to talk openly about the effects of bullying on the lives of children and young people and take action to stop it.
Despite significant improvements to how schools tackle bullying of pupils, some groups of children and young people are still more likely to be bullied than others.

The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) has been co-ordinating Anti-Bullying Week for over ten years and thanks to the enthusiasm of children and young people, and school staff, the week is now firmly established in the school calendar.

ABA defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person by another, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological.

The aims for Anti-Bullying Week 2014 are:

To stop the bullying of disabled children and those with special educational needs by equipping schools, colleges and youth services leaders with resources to encourage youth led anti-bullying initiatives that encourages inclusive attitudes amongst children and young people.
To educate those who support and work with children to recognise those who may be particularly vulnerable to bullying - encouraging an inclusive approach to all anti-bullying education.
To ensure the school and wider community understand that the use of any discriminatory language is wrong and will not be tolerated.

Children will be involved in assemblies through the week and Learning for life sessions will focus on the themes outlined above.

Please talk through these issues with your child at home and for further information, video clips and discussion points click the link below:


Many thanks for your continued support.

Bradway School Remembrance Event 11.11.14

Thank you so much to those members of the local community who joined us at our Remembrance event today. There was a strong sense of community and all of our children, even our very youngest ones, participated exceptionally well.
The poppy display was beautiful, as can be seen below. We will not leave it outside for long as we do not want it to be destroyed by the weather, so come and see it as soon as you can!

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them."

Remembrance Event on Tuesday 11th November

All parents and carers, together with other members of the local community, are warmly invited to our Remembrance event starting at 10.50am on Tuesday 11th November. There will be a brief act of remembrance on the infant playground followed by the Last Post and Reveille. 
Our poppy display may not rival the incredible one at The Tower of London but we will do our best.

Letter for parents
