Weekly Newsletter - Thursday 19th July, 2018

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

End of the Academic Year
As we move towards the close of another school year, I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to you all for your continued support. We have made fantastic progress again and it has been wonderful to receive so many positive comments from parents, carers and the local and wider community. We are hugely proud of the children who are a real credit to our school, & to you as parents and carers. It is a joy to see happy children every school day, achieving and succeeding every step of the way.

I am very grateful to parents who have served on the Parents' Forum. Their feedback, detailing both our strengths and areas for development, has such a positive impact on the success of the school. On behalf of the staff I would like to thank all parents who have volunteered this year for school trips, listening to pupils read or helping the LFPA to raise much needed funds. We wouldn’t be able to achieve as much as we do if it wasn’t for the support of you all. 

Outstanding or School of the Year, doesn’t mean perfect and we have some exciting new projects in the pipeline. We are developing our parents curriculum and we are very much looking forward to inviting you into the classroom to spend time learning alongside your child. We can also promise that during the next academic year the long awaited new extension of our school will open and your children will have access to brand new resources and all of the opportunities that a new building brings. 

I am so proud and privileged to lead this school. The teamwork and dedication of staff, no matter what their role, in making sure your child is thriving educationally, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually is second to none.

On behalf of the Broadford Primary School staff, I would like to wish you all an enjoyable and safe summer holiday. We also wish our Year 6 pupils all the very best for a bright and successful future – we hope they look back at their time at Broadford with fondness and happy memories.

For those returning in September, I will see you all as the school doors open at 8.30 am on Wednesday 5th September 2018. I look forward to seeing our pupils in their smart Broadford Primary School uniform, ready for the challenges of a new academic year.

Summer Reading Challenge & Activities
Each summer Mrs Mcfarlane runs the reading competition where you have to get caught with a book in an unusual place. We've seen children reading in: airports, on sun loungers, in trampoline enclosures, on the beach and by a palace! All you need to do is snap a photo of your child reading their book and message it to us via the school Facebook page, or email it to

Mrs Mcfarlane will judge the winning entries on the return in September, with the best photos earning a prize and certificate… so get reading!

If you are stuck for ideas on what to do this holiday, take a look at the ‘50 things to do this summer’ list. A lot of the ideas are free, simple and can be carried out with friends, siblings or even on your own. If you manage to complete one or more of the activities make sure you take a photo and send it to us via the school Facebook page, or email it to Look out on the blog to see what all of your friends are up too this six weeks!

I am sure you will all join me in wishing Miss Richardson and her fiance all the best for their upcoming wedding. We hope that they both enjoy their wonderful wedding day and have a very happy life together.

Also please join me in sending Mrs Smith best wishes as she starts her maternity leave and with her husband prepares for their new arrival. We are all looking forward to meeting her bundle of joy. Best wishes from us all.

All that leaves me to do is to wish you a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. For those of you moving on to secondary school we will miss you but we know you are well prepared for the challenges you will face and you go with our very best wishes for the future. If you are travelling, then I wish you a safe journey and we look forward to seeing you rested and refreshed for the start of the new school year on September 5th.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
Yours sincerely,

Mrs L Nicholls
