Dear Parents and Carers,

Part 1 Broadford News

Sports Afternoon

A big thank you to all parents and carers who attended our sports afternoon on Monday this week. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there was a wonderful sense of sportsmanships from all of the young  participants. Thank you also to the staff for organising and preparing the pupils for the event. We apologise once again that we had to cancel the year 5 & 6 event due to the weather but I am happy to invite parents into school to enjoy the sports afternoon on Monday 15th July at 2pm. . 

Sports Afternoons

Year 2,3&4 - Tuesday 9th July @ 2.00pm 

Next week we are inviting parents to join us for sports events to cheer on the pupils and celebrate their sportsmanship. Please see the arrangements and expectations below. 

  • On their sports day, pupils must wear the school PE kit to school (navy blue shorts, plain white t-shirt with or without the Broadford logo, trainers or plimsolls and a sun hat). Sunscreen must be applied before school and children should bring a water bottle with them. 

  • Please arrive on the allocated date and time and wait at the grey double doors to the left of the main school office. 

  • The doors will be opened at 2.00pm and our year 6 prefects will be waiting to show you to the school field where the pupils will be ready to start. 

  • If you arrive late and the sports event has already started, you may not be able to access the field, please arrive on time.

  • We would like to remind you that you are welcome to take photos of your own child. Please do not take videos or photographs of the whole class or groups of children and share them on social media. Not every parent gives permission for their children’s photographs to be shared on the internet. Class teachers will be taking photographs and will share these on the schools social media platforms for pupils who we have parental permission to do so. 

  • Please encourage and cheer all pupils during the event.

  • Once the event has finished all pupils will go back to their classrooms to get ready to go home and you can wait for your child to be dismissed at their classroom door as usual. 

We look forward to welcoming many of you next week which I have no doubt will be a wonderful event!
