Welcome to our school
On behalf of all members of our school community, I wish to extend a warm welcome to our school.
Broadmead Lower School is a happy, lively place where everyone is expected to work hard, try their best and achieve their potential in all areas of learning. We believe in a strong relationship between home and school and that working together with parents and guardians is the best way to ensure success for the children.
You are always welcome to visit our school and the best time to come is when we are all working and you will be able to see our motto ‘Belonging, Learning, Succeeding’ in action. Please telephone the school to make an appointment; we would love to meet you and to show you around.
We are all very proud of our school and hope that you find this website interesting and informative, whether you are a current parent or a visitor.
Mrs S Horobin
