Happy and triumphant smiles could be seen in Year 6 as their ceramic sculpture took first place in the ISA National Art Competition.   A few weeks ago we were thrilled when the ISA Regional judges chose our piece in the London and West area, how much more exciting to win at a national level.  Here is part…

Remembrance Day

12th November 2019

Thank you to the parents who joined us yesterday for the 2 minutes silence for Remembrance Day.   Here are some of our children with the military medals awarded to their grandparents.  As we stood quietly we could hear the Royal Gun Salutes marking the beginning and the end of the 2 minutes silence.

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
