Headteacher’s Introduction

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website and through these pages to show you what our school has to offer. At Broomfield we are academically ambitious for your children and tailor our teaching to the needs of every child through highly differentiated lessons and our unique Individual Learning Enhancement programme. We aim to unlock children’s potential, foster their independence and encourage them to love learning, to develop their own ideas and confidently articulate their own opinions. We run a wide curriculum and a broad range of extra-curricular activities with a view to helping our children find the things that will give them joy forever.

Happy children learn most effectively and we believe that Broomfield’s homely atmosphere creates just the right environment for them to achieve their best. Our pastoral care and happiness programmes provide many opportunities for us to check on how our children feel and to constantly review how best to support them.

Broomfield is a family school in every sense. We have numerous pupils whose parents, and even grandparents, attended Broomfield themselves. However, we also pride ourselves on being a friendly and inclusive academic family which welcomes pupils and their parents from all over the world, and maintains close and long-lasting relationships with many of them when they move on to other countries and schools.

I am proud of Broomfield and all we achieve. I hope you enjoy exploring our website, but to really experience the special qualities of our school please join us for one of our regular parent tours. The children are our best ambassadors so come and see them at work and play. I trust you will find a kind, purposeful and imaginative school where children and staff work in harmony to foster confidence and excellence in everything we do.

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
