Broomfield has winning magical formula in regional maths competition

11th October 2019

Four Year 5 maths whizzes battled it out against the top mathematicians from 20 other primary schools to take first prize in Hampton School’s annual Maths Wizard problem-solving competition on Monday 07 October.

Arjan, Hannah, Jonathan and Leina used their numeracy, logic and reasoning, collaborative and creative skills to solve a wide variety of challenging maths problems in a demanding three-hour afternoon session held at Hampton School. “I was so proud of them, said Broomfield’s senior maths teacher Ms Balogh. “They worked so well as a team on some extremely hard maths problems and never gave up. They really enjoyed tackling the challenges which is what we seek to achieve with all our pupils at Broomfield.”

Arrangements for learning from 23 March

It is with regret that Broomfield House School will be partially closing from 3.30pm on Friday 20th March.  We have been open and providing our customary high quality education in school until this point but, following Government advice, we will now be fully supporting the children’s learning at home.  We have developed robust plans for this, working with our website provider and IT systems support and will be delivering age-appropriate teaching to our children and families.  We will be supporting many different ways of learning which will include text-based work, online lessons, video content and, with parental support, will be marking the children’s work and giving feedback to parents about it.  In Early Years we will also use the Tapestry system.

Developing these new ways of working and learning are exciting and we are confident that the innovations we are introducing to deal with these strange times will offer long term benefits to pupils, parents and staff alike.

We will continue to support the children of key workers at school to allow their parents to provide these critical services during the current situation.

We have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our school community.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone well and hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With all good wishes

Mrs Susie Byers
Headteacher
