You will have the opportunity to meet your child’s new class teacher and find out how they have settled so far this year. The teachers will also explain the expectations for the end of the year for your child.

Our year 6 prefects will also be on hand to show you the way and will be asking parents to complete our annual parent survey.

We will post a google form on Wednesday 29th September, please complete by Wednesday 6th October giving your time and date preference. Appointments will be allocated on a first come first served basis. 

Governor Vacancy

Due to the resignation of an experienced governor who has moved out of the area, we have a vacancy on the Governing Body of The Learning Federation. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute towards the strategic direction of Broadford and Mead Primary Schools. If you would like to know more about the role or have any questions, please email our Chair of Governors, Alan Kemp.


Lost Property
All lost property will be stored in a box under the large canopy on the playground. If your child has lost an item of clothing please have a look in this box when you collect your child at the end of the school day. After two weeks, if lost items have not been reclaimed we will add them to our spare uniform supply or pass them onto clothing banks and  charity shops.
If you ensure that all items are clearly marked with your child’s name and class we can  ensure its return to its owner.
As I am sure you can appreciate, all navy blue sweatshirts look the same. 


Flu Immunisations 

You will have received information regarding the flu immunisations. If you would like your child to receive this immunisation, please complete the consent form and return to school by Monday 4th October in a named envelope. The immunisation team will be in school on Thursday 14th October. 


Congratulations to Miss Estall and Mrs Smith who have both welcomed new babies into their families. Miss Estall had a baby girl and Mrs Smith a baby boy. Please join me in sending them both, their partners and families our best wishes at this wonderful time.
