Weekly Newsletter - 30.6.2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

TES Awards
As I am sure you are all aware, Broadford Primary School won two prestigious  awards last Friday at the TES award ceremony in London. Primary School of the Year and Overall School of the Year. We couldn’t be prouder of the pupils, parents and staff within this community who have worked together to make Broadford the fantastic school that it is today. The awards have attracted a  lot of attention and in the very near future we are looking forward to an article in the TES weekly publication, visits from school leaders across the country and America and a visit from the newly elected local MP, Julia Dockerill.
A very big thank you to each and every one of you for your constant support every day. We are very excited about the future.

Diary Dates
