Headteacher’s End of Year Report

I have really enjoyed the year. Our school community has gone from strength to strength.

Anyone with a jaded view of humanity should spend a day amongst the children here. They would see the strength of human fellowship which ignores boundaries of background, faith or nationality. It is a wonderful thing that I get to see every day. Children being good friends ignoring the boundaries that we adults sometimes perceive. This specialness provides Broadfields children an experience, which I hope, will allow them to be decent citizens who can make a values based contribution to our world. So, please, let’s celebrate all the wonderful children of Broadfields and maybe follow their example of tolerant, respectful friendship to one another!

Parents are rightly concerned to know that the school where there children attend provides a strong education. I’m really pleased to report that the academic outcomes of our leavers are very positive again. This is very important because it means that our pupils can move on to secondary school confident in their own ability to face the challenges of the next stage of their lives.

The attainment data is listed below, and when the progress figures are released, I am certain that Broadfields will again be amongst the top 20% of all schools in England.

I hope that you have enjoyed watching the short tasters for our Broadfields film. I will put the first draft on the website today. I think that the video provides you all with an opportunity to see what happens on a normal day at school and I hope that you will find the teachers’ comments interesting and informative.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone (teachers, TAs, volunteers and, of course, parents!) who has supported a child in anyway this year. They are the future, and it is up to us all as the important adults in their lives to make sure that they have the best possible chance for success and happiness.

Have a great holiday!
