TTRS - Star of the week!

Congratulations Liroshan - you are this week's TTRS star of the week! 

Liroshan has only started using TTRS this year in year 1 (yes that's right - he is only in year 1!) and he has already smashed his way through the tables, earning himself Rock Hero status. 

This comes to no surprise considering he has already accumulated lifetime earnings of 1,597,723 coins, has answered 197,482 questions correctly and has a speed of 0.59. This demonstrates perfectly that if you are committed to playing regularly and demonstrate resilience, you will become confident in your tables. This knowledge is fundamental to being a confident mathematician throughout schooling. 

Well done Liroshan! 





Key Stage 2 Maths Challenge - 18.01.21

A huge congratulations to the winners of last week's maths challenge: Aksanan, Lucas and Ehan! We are so proud of your incredible problem-solving skills and resilience with our weekly maths challenge. 

We are looking into creating virtual certificates, so that the children can still receive their rewards for their hard work!

Newsletter - Friday 15th January

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 





Dear Parents and Carers,

Well done to everyone for getting through another week. If you are learning at home or in school you are all doing a wonderful job!

Once again we had a great uptake on the google meet sessions and with your help I know we can increase this week by week. The teachers love to see the children’s faces. If you are having any difficulties joining the meets then please email the teachers at the email addresses below.

We do want to remind you not to put undue pressure on yourself or the children at this difficult time. Whilst learning is important, it is also important to keep having fun also. I hope you all manage to relax over the weekend and get ready for Monday morning. 

Newsletters 2021

As you are aware we try to be as paperless as we possibly can as a school. We want to reduce our carbon footprint so that we can create a better environment for the future and our children. The weekly newsletter will continue to be available via the school blog (accessed via the school website), Facebook and Twitter. We also have an email, however, from now on we are going to use our new system and email all parents a copy of the newsletter each week. Please ensure that we have your updated details to ensure that you receive it each week.
We hope that you received your newsletter in your email box last Friday.

Free School Meals

If you are eligible for free schools meals you would have received a text message from us asking you to confirm your details. From Monday 18th parents eligible for free school meals will receive vouchers and will no longer be required to collect food packages from school.

Key Stage 1 families who are eligible for FSM may have not yet applied due to the universal free school meal offer for all KS1 children. If you believe you are eligible for free school meals then please contact the office and they will confirm for you.

office@broadford.havering.sch.uk

Learning League

Obviously, at the moment we cannot calculate attendance so instead we are going to change the attendance league to the learning league. Each week we will announce which year group has been the most active on google classroom, they will be awarded full marks and shoot to the top of the learning league table. Make sure that you are tuning into those google meets and turning in your assignments to ensure that your year group is at the top of the league table. When we return to school the year groups at the top of the league table will earn themselves a reward. This week congratulations to;

EYFS & KS1: Year 1 KS2: Year 3

TTRS - Star of the week!

Well done to Hashir, our TTRS Star of the week!


Hashir is the first KS1 pupil to earn this accolade due to him currently having the fastest studio speed in the entire school! Amazingly, Hashir's studio speed is 0.53 which means he is answering questions in under a second! This is exactly why he has Rock Hero status. 

Well done, Hashir - your hard work on the platform has paid off!

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 


Dear Parents and Carers,

Happy New Year 

I would like to wish a happy New Year to you all and I hope that you all enjoyed a relaxing and restful break, as much as possible in these unusual circumstances. This year I have no doubt that our children will be stronger and more resilient. If they achieve all this they will be unstoppable and this will be their best, yet strangest year yet!

TOday is a test run, keep your fingers crossed that it works! 


Remote Learning 

We believe that everyone has made a fantastic start to remote learning. I know that we have been here before, but we have taken feedback on board, researched what other schools are providing and have made amendments to our remote learning offer. You will have noticed this week that there have been online teaching sessions and some 1:1 reading sessions taking place. We appreciate your patience as our staff navigate their way through this and learn new skills also. Just as we appreciate your support with this. I have no doubt that the pupils have enjoyed meeting virtually with their friends and teachers and we hope that this motivates them in their learning journey. 

We know and totally understand that many of you will be feeling overwhelmed by everything that’s happening and we want you to know that we feel the same. But, together we are stronger. If we all work together we can support our children through this difficult time. Look after them, look after yourself and look after each other. 

If you are having difficulties accessing any of the remote learning please contact your child’s class teachers via the following email addresses; 

eyfs@broadford.havering.sch.uk

year12@broadford.havering.sch.uk

year34@broadford.havering.sch.uk

year56@broadford.havering.sch.uk


If you have enquiries regarding free school meals please contact the school office;

Critical Worker & Vulnerable Pupils In School 

For pupils who are still attending school, I would like to remind these parents that the same arrangements are in place as last term. If your child or anyone in your household develops symptoms of Covid-19 eg, a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to taste or smell then you must inform us immediately, stay at home and book a test. Please let us know as soon as you receive the results of the test. 


Reception Admissions September 2021

If your child is looking to join our school in Reception 2021  it is vital that you get your application completed by 15th January 2021 or it is likely you will miss out. Last year we had over 190 applications for just 90 places. Even as a three form entry school, we have more expressions of interest than we have places – YOU MUST APPLY! Attending our Nursery will have no impact on your application. Many parents mistakenly believe that a place in the Nursery = a place in Reception… it doesn’t!

Learning League

Obviously, at the moment we cannot calculate attendance so instead we are going to change the attendance league to the learning league. Each week we will announce which year group has been the most active on google classroom, they will be awarded full marks and shoot to the top of the learning league table. Make sure that you are tuning into those google meets and turning in your assignments to ensure that your year group is at the top of the league table. When we return to school the year groups at the top of the league table will earn themselves a reward. This week congratulations to;
