I am delighted to write a few words of introduction to welcome you to Broadlea Primary School. It is a great privilege to have been appointed as headteacher and to lead a team of skilled and reflective staff who prioritise the needs of children at the centre of all they do. Our school is a place of fun, laughter and learning where everyone strives to be the very best they can in all they do. We aim to provide a rich and varied curriculum through our extensive learning environment, including Forest School, computing Suite, our beautiful new Library and the extensive school grounds. Our school curriculum is designed to motivate and excite our children, as well as providing them with the knowledge, skills, vocabulary and inspiration they need to embrace their future. By supporting our children to develop resilience, curiosity, compassion, understanding and aspiration, we know that we lay the building blocks to ensure that they are ready for the next stage in their learning and beyond. To achieve this, we believe that partnership and communication between home and school is essential. We work closely with our families to ensure the best outcomes for all children.

At Broadlea, we also encourage learning outside of the classroom, enhancing children's cultural capital through visiting places of interest, inviting visitors into school and utilising our beautiful local area. Our Forest School natural, tree-enclosed environment offers all learners, from Reception to Year 6, regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences.

In February 2024, our completely repurposed and extensive Early Years and Key Stage One learning environment was opened. Along with the skilled and experienced teaching team, this state of the art environment offers a provision which makes learning and play irresistible. 
Children begin to learn to read, write and spell using our chosen phonics programme, Little Wandle, as soon as they begin school. Our uncompromising ambition is for all children to become fluent and confident readers who learn to read so they can read to learn.

We strive to be an inclusive school and are very proud of our children and staff: they are so supportive of one another and work hard every day to ensure that our school is a place where everyone feels valued and included. We are delighted to be a School Games Gold school and to hold the Arts Mark. Both accreditations recognises the range of clubs, activities and opportunities provided to all our pupils. 

At Broadlea, your child will be celebrated as an individual, whilst joining a strong community of parents, children, staff and governors, whose joint aim is to provide the highest possible standard of education. I hope that this website will help you to find out about the life of our very special school. However, the best way to learn more is to come in and see us, look around the school, and see for yourself what we have to offer. 

We very much look forward to meeting you.

Lynn Torrance -  Headteacher
