Our Vision

We are ambitious for our children and for our school

As a school community we want our children to have learning at their heart and have teachers who ignite their curiosity – together developing a love and independence for learning through a broad, relevant and active curriculum. They have a right to an aspiration and a sense of self-worth that comes from achievement and challenge, leading to outstanding progress so that they have all the skills they need for the next stage of their life.


Our Ethos 

“Pupils behave well, feel safe and have good attitudes to learning. They enjoy coming to school, which is reflected in the improved rates of attendance”

OFSTED 2013

Our school ethos is firmly rooted in our values with a shared responsibility for our own learning and choices being the foundation of everything we do. Therefore the values we promote through all that we do are:

ethos


Inclusion

The Staff and Governors at Broadoak are fully committed to ensuring that all children are included in enjoying and achieving in their whole school journey. However, there are times when children need additional support or help in their educational life in order that they may succeed.

This may involve a child needing a short term period of intervention, depending on the individual’s difficulties, or a more longer term specialised period of support. Broadoak has a strong inclusive ethos and responds to the needs of the individual. Our ‘Inclusion Team’ continually monitor and review practice in order that a high standard of provision is provided.

Our team includes specialist teachers, support teachers and learning mentors and a school community that provide a wealth of specialist knowledge and provision that ensures there is a wide range of opportunities for closing gaps in learning or other barriers to a child’s learning.

Broadoak is proud to be an ECAR school. We are a Reading Recovery school and we deploy a very high standard of reading interventions by specialist teachers.


Additional Support

“My child has progressed so much since attending Broadoak and I feel fully supported”

PARENT

Pastoral

Our pastoral manager and learning mentors are available to support children and families whenever required. From early intervention, to programmes to develop team skills or improve behaviour to safeguarding conferences, we are proud of the work that we do to help children and families.

Special Educational Needs

Our team of staff lead interventions and support programmes at every level of the school from Nursery and Reception to Year 6. The wide range of interventions offered support children who may be struggling with their maths, reading, writing or phonics while staff in Keystage 1 and 2 work exclusively with SEN children each morning to help them make progress in Reading, Writing and Maths. More information about our SEND Local Offer

English as an Additional Language

Designated staff work with our international new arrival children to build up their English language skills, with a particular focus on Phonics while teachers create classrooms that support their language development and celebrate their family heritage and cultures. We are very proud off the progress made by our new arrival children.


Statement of British Values

The government has defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We promote these values through our school using the curriculum and additional activities.
