Fleeced!

Broomfield’s annual Spelling Bee saw children across the year groups focus on class-based spelling quizzes and we were delighted with how well everyone did, making their teachers very proud.  The Year 6 competition in class resulted in three children from each house competing for the trophy in the whole school assembly.  As the competition moved…

Working from home

26th March 2020

While many parents have previously enjoyed the odd ‘working from home‘ day, we didn’t ever anticipate that this would be something our children would need to do!  We have had some lovely feedback from parents and children about how they have been managing their school day from the comfort of their own homes.  You will…

Five little ducks went swimming one day!

3rd March 2020

Year 1 were on tenterhooks this week as their five duckling friends were introduced to swimming.  There was no need to worry though, our intrepid fluff balls took to it…..  like ducks to water you could say!  After their exercise it was wonderful to see how the ducklings preened themselves to dry off.   They have…

Walking the corridors of power!

Our ducklings have arrived

Yesterday our duck eggs arrived in Year 1 to much eggcitement!  What a great way to start off the new half term.  The class have not needed to be very patient as already two of the duckling chicks are chipping away at their eggshells in a bid to escape their confinement and take their first…

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
