We are a Values school - This half term’s value is: CREATIVITY.

Please see our website for Home/ school values based activities!




Dear Parents,


Kidsafe: Kidsafe sessions will be starting in Class 3 tomorrow afternoon. If you feel you would like to know more about what will be included, please come to the next information session with Mr Knaggs today at 4pm (Class 3 parents should have received a letter with more information).


Football Practice: Just a reminder for footballers, Football practice will continue on a Wednesday after school while Mr Livesey is away. Miss Jackson or Mrs Graham-Kevan will be leading this session. Please note that children MUST have shin pads or they will be unable to play.


BSA: Broughton School Association is a committee made up of volunteer parents and carers. Our aim is to organise fun events for the children, such as the Summer Gala, Christmas Fair and of course, the School Discos, whilst raising much needed funding for school trips and supplies.

Our next meeting will be our AGM on Wednesday 27th September at 3.30pm. It will be held in school and children can play while we meet. Please come along to find out more! If you can’t make it but would like to get involved, please get in touch with our current Chair Helen Colwill - helencolwill@hotmail.com or speak to one of the other BSA members.

We are raising money again by asking the children to design their very own Christmas Card that can be bought by you and family and friends. Children in class one will be design theirs in school. The children in classes 1 & 2 will receive a template and be able to design them at home (template also attached). Please return the design by 2 October 2017! Thank you for your support.

Data Collection: A copy of your child’s data collection sheet was sent home last week and I would be grateful if you could check, sign and return it to the office as soon as possible. New consent forms are not required for existing pupils who returned their forms last year, these remain valid until the pupil leaves our school. It is important that we have up to date details for your child in case of emergencies, therefore please advise school of any change in circumstances as soon as possible. Thank you.
