Our curriculum is the heart of our work. This is where the imagination and ambition of our teachers meet the potential and endless possibilities that our children bring as pupils. It is our delight to update and refresh our curriculum each year seeking out new ways of communicating our knowledge to pupils while maintaining the traditional strengths of tried and tested teaching methods.
In our Ofsted inspections in 2007 and 2010 our curriculum was praised as outstanding. In March 2015, we were inspected by the ISI for the first time and were pleased that the school continued to be 100% compliant with all regulations and that the inspectors judged our curriculum and teaching, among many other things, as excellent. More importantly, our curriculum engages our children and aims to impart a love of learning as we prepare our pupils to move onto senior schools.
In the ISI Compliance Inspection in 2018 we were, once again, shown to be 100% compliant.
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
