Facebook Statistics Update

It is hard to believe that at the beginning of the year (in September) we had no way of communicating with parents through sites like Facebook, Twitter or our webpage. However the response from all stakeholders in the school to our new methods of communication has been overwhelming.

It is interesting to look at the stats for the Facebook page as they show the 'readership' of the page is mostly female (85%). Of this, the age demographic shows that 41% of our readers are women aged between 25-34 years old. The largest group of male followers (7.5%) are slightly older, aged from 35-44 years old. We will have to get our football team blogging their results so that we can push up the number of dads following the newsfeed.

We also have some web friendly Grandparents, as 1.5% of our readers are aged 55+.

Soon in the New Year we will be relaunching Parent Mail - as their service has just been revamped. This will increase our ability to keep all parents, carers, Governors and friends of Broadford in the picture about what is happening at our school.

We would like to take this chance to thank you for the support you have all shown the school over the last term. 2012 promises to be a very exciting year as Broadford will continue to move forward. Already we have football matches for the girls and boys team. Year 5/6 are booked on a visit to the Tower of London as part of their 'Take One Building' project. Year 3/4 will be working towards producing a piece of music to be performed at the Rose Theatre. Literacy Week is at the beginning of March - when we shall see the return of the Multi Story Theatre company... and that is just to start with! It makes it all the more special to be able to share this with you as it happens.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our followers/readers!
