More swimming success

25th November 2019

Last week saw Broomfield pitted against 4 other local schools in our Inter-schools Swimming Gala. We are grateful to Ashton House, Falcons, Heathfield and Unicorn for joining us at Teddingtgn Pool for a some strongly competitive swimming. Unicorn led the scoreboard for a good part of the gala but Broomfield’s strength in the relays meant that we brought home the shield.  Here are the proud Boys’ and Girls’ Swim Captains proudly holding the Inter-school Swimming Shield.

 

We also learned that three of our swimmers will be competing in the ISA National Gala in December so it has been a great week for the Swim Squad.

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
