Miss Moran's Retirement

Thank you to all of the parents, former staff and pupils who helped to make Miss Moran's send off a very memorable one. To celebrate her incredible 38 years of service we had an afternoon tea at the school. This was a great chance for friends, family and colleagues (past and present) to come and wish Miss Moran all the best for life after Broadford.

It was also so nice to see the way in which Miss Moran was given a very warm send off on the last day of the term. Miss Moran has taught well over 1,000 pupils in her time here and influenced many more. Her high quality teaching, sense of humour and presence will be greatly missed.

However we are delighted that Miss Moran has already agreed to come back and take part in some school trips... so not goodbye, more au revoir!

Isabelle's Gymnastics Award

Well done to Isabelle who has achieved her Level 6 award! 

The Core Proficiency Awards Scheme has been developed by British Gymnastics for Primary School age children.

It is delivered by British Gymnastics’ qualified Coaches, and is built around 10 different types of activity – such as Strength, Jumping, Rolling and Balancing – with 8 levels of attainment. 

This makes it a great way for students and coaches alike to build skills and recognise achievement.

I love my gymnastics classes. The sessions are always realy good fun!

Tracker Awards

Charlie Cooper is at the end of the Silver tracker. Lillie Mersh & Weronika Harandi have collected their Gold certificate. Ruby Burchell & Jacob Owsley have reached their Prestige Golden Bookmark. 

Kieran Dash & Ronnie Marshall have finished their Platinum tracker. Charly Wallace has finished his Diamond tracker. Jack Barnett has managed to complete his Star Award! 

Deborah Mushonga & Simona Raklevicius have got their Prestige Bronze. Well done to Lucy Stevens who has collected her Prestige Platinum pencil & pen set. 

Traffic & Parking Meetings

We would like to give you early notice of the meetings that will inform you about the next steps in the proposed changes to parking restrictions around the school. Two meetings have been arranged, one for residents and one for parents.

Residents’ Meeting: Monday 18th April 4-6pm

Parents’ Meeting: Wednesday 20th April 4-6pm

This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the proposal and put forward suggestions of how the scheme could be further improved.

Sofia's Piano Achievement

Congratulations to Sofia who has passed her first piano exam. Although she has only been playing for a few months she has already shown great promise. 

After School Clubs

There are no after school clubs until Monday 25th April. This is because we have an ever growing number of pupils and it is now quite an administrative task to get all the applications in and processed. 

It means that for the first two weeks of school in the Summer term all pupils will need to be collected by 3.15pm.

Unilever Bids - Pitch Day

Our pupils went to London last year to pitch for money to run a community project #wearekind.

We wanted to launch a project that helps people realise how much impact they can have with small acts of kindness. We hope to start a kindness revolution!
Leo Mbata

This project has been possible thanks to the support of the Mayor of London and Unilever.

Have a look at the video below which shows the highlights from the pitch day where 12 schools went to share their ideas and bid for funding.

Project Sunlight
On 20 November 2013, Universal Children’s Day, Unilever launched Project Sunlight, a campaign to motivate millions of people to adopt more sustainable lifestyles.

Since then, with the help of a growing community of people who believe in the power of taking action, they have made a positive contribution towards the life of millions of people around the world. They've formed lasting partnerships and worked with today’s inspiring new leaders towards a brighter and more sustainable future. There have been many proud moments: helping 2 million children across the world, through Unilever's ongoing partnership with Save the Children, UNICEF and the World Food Programme.

In the UK last year they provided half a million meals to UK families in need through the #ClearAPlate campaign in partnership with Oxfam.

Unilever is also a proud supporter of the Team London Young Ambassadors: the Mayor of London's volunteer programme for schools which aims to inspire young people to engage in social action, both in their school and the local community. To date the programme has seen participation from more than 800 schools reaching a massive 140,000 young people.

Bikeability Awards

Well done to our latest batch of Bikeability cyclists. Now that they have earned their Level 2 accreditation, they will be able to access the Redbridge & Olympic trips as well as our monthly cycle club.

At first I thought I wouldn't be able to pass because I found it hard to balance on my bike. However the staff really helped me and I now feel much more confident. I can't wait to go on the cycle club trips!
Holly Turner - aged 10

What is Bikeability?
Bikeability is a cycle training programme. It’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling.

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.

What do you do at Level 2?

Level 2 takes place on local streets, giving trainees a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops. Trainees are usually trained in small groups – up to 6 trainees per instructor – though individual training may also be available. At Level 2 you can:

  • prepare for on-road cycling
  • start and finish an on-road journey
  • recognise typical hazards
  • let others know what you are about to do
  • know where to ride on the road
  • pass parked vehicles and side roads

Billy's Boxing Achievement

Well done to Billy who has earned the Boxing Belt at his local club. In order to take it home he had to show some great sparring skills. Boxing is a great way to stay fit, Mr Portway runs a boxing fitness club at school. It seems that we might have our very own expert in the making with Billy!

Year 6 - Theatre Of Law

Our Year 6 pupils have been working hard on their Theatre of Law project.

The Royal Courts of Justice in London is the setting for this innovative project. It is delivered to Primary students to improve their understanding of the law and the contemporary justice system. This project is currently supported by the Mayor’s fund for London.

“Working with young people to understand the law and their role in society at an early age is essential to ensure they play a full part in London’s future. Theatre of Law meets this need and promotes social and emotional skills that underpin effective learning and positive behaviour.” - Matthew Patten, CEO

The project links to English, Citizenship and Drama in the National Curriculum and consists of two days – one at school and one at the Royal Courts of Justice. Our pupils have worked on crime stories inspired by real cases and learnt about the consequences of crimes, debate on punishments and prepared for their mock trial at the Royal Courts of Justice.

In the Court, our pupils acted-out the script, playing the roles of the judges, the barristers, the jury, the witnesses and all other characters in a real Victorian courtroom, followed by a tour of the Courts.

The project has four aims:

  1. Improve young people’s knowledge and understanding of the law
  2. Give participants the opportunity to learn about the consequences of crime and the impact on individuals and society
  3. Provide an insight into the workings of the Justice system
  4. Raise aspirations amongst those who participated in the project to see the law and related areas as a potential future career

It was so interesting to hear about what it is like to be a judge. The one who spoke to us had covered lots of really interesting cases. I enjoyed having to find the evidence and make a case so now I will consider law as a career!
Isaac Stevens - aged 10

Special delivery from......SPACE!

Children at Broadford Primary School are eagerly anticipating a very exciting delivery from......SPACE! 

Children are preparing to become space biologists and embark on a voyage of discovery by growing seeds that have been into space.

In September, 2kg of rocket seeds were flown to the International Space Station (ISS) on Soyuz 44S where they spent several months in microgravity before returning to Earth in March 2016. The seeds have been sent as part of Rocket Science, an educational project launched by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency.

Broadford Primary School will be one of up to 10,000 schools to receive a packet of 100 seeds from space, which they will grow alongside seeds that haven’t been to space and measure the differences over seven weeks. The children, or staff, won’t know which seed packet contains which seeds until all results have been collected by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and analysed by professional biostatisticians.

The out-of-this-world, nationwide science experiment will enable the children to think more about how we could preserve human life on another planet in the future, what astronauts need to survive long-term missions in space and the difficulties surrounding growing fresh food in challenging climates.

Miss Barron, Assistant Headteacher at Broadford Primary School says: “We are very excited to be taking part in Rocket Science. This experiment is a fantastic way of teaching our children to think more scientifically and share their findings with the whole Broadford community."

Rocket Science is just one educational project from a programme developed by the UK Space Agency to celebrate British ESA astronaut Tim Peake’s Principia mission to the ISS and inspire young people to look into careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, including horticulture.

The seeds have travelled from the ISS (International Space Station) to Kazakh Steppe in central Asia, to Moscow in Russia followed by a quick refuelling stop in Stavanger, Norway and then finishing their long journey in the UK in early March.  

We will receive our seeds after the Easter holidays for 
planting...watch this space!

Reading League Winners

We are delighted to announce the newest winners in the Broadford Reading League. After a closely fought contest, The Fairy Girls & Beat The Book teams finished at the top of the table.

As a reward for their impressive reading habits, the pupils will all be enjoying a trip to see the London Lions on the 17th April!

Why have a reading league?
We believe in continuously strengthening our culture of reading within the school. This competition inspires the children to read collaboratively, undertake challenges, interact with the library and enjoy good stories. We believe in looking for opportunities to close the cultural deficit that many of our pupils face. Taking the children to a live sporting event is a fantastic experience that they may not otherwise enjoy.

How does it work?
Pupils have to enter themselves into the competition - either in teams, pairs or individually. They then accumulate points through the different reading activities. Miss Sparkes keeps a running total and the awards the final certificates.

What do the pupils have to do?
It's very simple...

  • read books
  • enjoy the books
  • review the books
  • complete challenges on the books
  • return the books
  • do it over again!
100% of pupils enrolled in the league say that it has encouraged them to read more regularly
100% of pupils say that they have enjoyed being part of the competition
74% of winning pupils had never been to a sporting event before
90% of pupils strongly agree that they have continued to read more even once the competition is over!

WE Day UK 2016

Two pupils from Broadford Primary, Leo Mbata & Temira Hascar, had the exciting opportunity to present their Community Action project #wearekind at the WE DAY UK celebrations last week. Held at Wembley Arena, We Day UK is an inspirational event which helps to empower a new generation to focus on how the actions of individuals can have the power to transform communities.
In front of 12,000 guests, Leo and Temira explained their project.
'#wearekind is about inspiring pupils to carry out small acts of kindness: offering your seat on a bus, paying a compliment or maybe just smiling at someone. These small things can help us create a kindness revolution'
Leo Mbata - aged 9
'This was a fantastic chance for our pupils to experience speaking in an unparalleled stadium-sized event. Their idea is simple but it could have a profound impact on our school and local community. We were so proud of how they pitched their bid to Unilever and the way they presented their ideas at the WE DAY event. Hopefully more people will be inspired to follow the message in #wearekind.'
Mrs Lois Nicholls - Deputy Headteacher

We Day UK is part of a global event that brings together world-renowned speakers and performers to honour the contributions of young volunteers and kick-start another year of change. 

For Broadford Primary, this is much more than a one-day event. We Day is the launch pad for a yearlong program, which offers our pupils the chance to take part in campaigns to helps to turn their ideas for social responsibility into a reality.'

James O’Connor asked about offering Smart Water to effected areas. It was discussed that the product was now renamed Met Trace and selected hot spot areas were being targeted, addresses were being re-attended to obtain a minimum 80% acceptance in each street.

19:15 Ionut Barbu entered room

PCSO Alanna Yeomans presented the Motor Vehicle figures for the period 12/11/2015- 104/02/2016 and same period 2014-2015 the figures showed a significant drop in the Theft from motor vehicles and criminal damage to motor vehicles. 

Jenifer Murphy commented that Harold Hill was not designed for the volume of cars that it now has and it will keep increasing with the new builds.

6. Input from David Turner of Trading Standards

David Turner explained the Banking Protocol and gave some recent examples of its success on the Borough; Operation Sterling is seeing the Banking Protocol rolled out across the Met. He also spoke about rouge traders that start small e.g. £10 to clear a gutter that once accepted then escalates into hundreds or thousands to repair a roof.
Jennifer Murphy enquired if it’s linked to organised crime. It was said that it was not normally, investment and charity scams lend themselves to organised crime although a vulnerable person’s address is often sold on to others.
This led onto the issue of people releasing their pensions and being tempted into buying wine as an investment that doesn’t exist or diamonds that are a very poor quality and not worth the money paid for them.
There was some group discussion on how to spread the message Pearl Osborne suggested a carpet door-to-door approach.
In conclusion David Turner also explained about the mail scams coming into the country saying that they are seized at the point of entry before they get into the Royal Mail system. The Scam Hub then sorts the letters and advices the local Boroughs e.g. Havering Trading Standards who will then make contact with the intended victim.

7. Any Other Business  

Drugs in Trowbridge Road

Jenifer Murphy raised the issue of drugs in Trowbridge Road; Jan Sargent agreed that there was a problem. Ben Clow Community Warden said they were aware and PCSO Yeomans asked that they report it if it’s drug dealing through Crime Stoppers or direct to the police.
