Weekly Newsletter - Wednesday 20th December, 2017

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
In this final newsletter of the year, I would like to thank you all for the support you have shown the school over the last 12 months. Watching all the children come into school this morning, speaking with parents and talking to the staff you would be hard pressed to know that we are at the end of the longest term of the year. Certainly, we have lots to smile about with the achievements of 2017 and it is a year we can look back on with a great deal of pride. This year our school was named as Primary School of the Year AND Overall School of the Year from a category of four other outstanding settings. An amazing achievement!
I strongly believe that 2018 will be an equally fruitful year for the school. The building work has begun and we will soon see the new school start to emerge. By the next academic year it is likely that the six new classrooms, new hall and a brand new purpose built nursery will be completed. We are committed to continuing to provide our staff with high quality training so they are able to  to further enhance their practice and the teachers have already been booking up enrichment activities to maintain the exciting nature of our curriculum.
All of this is possible because we have such a strong community spirit. We value your support and the way you have championed the success of your children. Everyday I continue to be inspired by the pupils and my colleagues and all that they do together to make Broadford special, unique and outstanding.

Thank you as well for all the cards and gifts that have been given to staff. On behalf of them I would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year… see you in 2018!

Thank you!
Your generous donations in the Christmas Bucket – at the end of each performance last week – have raised £276 we have made a donation in aid of Save the Children for our Christmas jumper day. Thank you.

Mrs Chance and Mrs Charlesworth will be organising the club registers as soon as we return from the break. the only club which will run on the first week back is the choir. Mrs Claxton would like the choir to meet as normal as they re rehearsing hard for the Young Voices concert at the 02.
