Our school value this half term (Spring 1) is positivity.
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)
We are hosting and Online Parental Workshop at school on Wednesday 15th February at 6.30pm
Please do come along and join us to find out what our pupils have told us they do online, find out more about our online safety curriculum as well as practical help and advice on how to support your children in an online world.
Refreshments will be provided and we very much hope to see you there.
Today Bradway Primary School has taken part in and celebrated Safer Internet Day.Safer Internet Day 2017 is being celebrated globally with the slogan ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
The day has offered the opportunity to highlight the power of image – both the positive and negative – in digital youth culture.
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
On 7th February 2017, thousands of people around the world have united for a better internet and have considered what they can do to help ‘Be the change’.
Image and video sharing are powerful tools of communication, self-expression and creativity, but there can be pressures, risks and potential negative consequences.
We need to ensure children have the skills, knowledge, confidence and resilience to communicate using images and videos safely and creatively.
This Safer Internet Day we want to empower children to have a positive time online and inspire everyone to ‘Be the change’ and use the positive power of image to help create a better internet.
As a school we have also asked the pupils to complete questionnaires so that we can have a greater understanding of the lives they lead online and how best to support them. The questionnaire results will be shared with parents once they have been collated and will be part of the focus of our parental workshop on Wednesday 15th February at 6.30pm. We hope to see you all there .
Congratulations to Mrs Pitts' and Mrs Lucas 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 97.7% and Mrs Pitts & Mrs Lucas' class a whopping 98.3%. Our school target
is 96.5 % .
Overall for Autumn 2 our attendance percentage was 96.8 which is just above our school target.
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.
One of our parents, Mrs Dyson, has been busy painting the wall of our library and we are so pleased with the result. Doesn't it look amazing?! We are so
grateful to her for sharing her amazing talent with us.
