A welcome from our Headteacher

Mrs Karen Shankland B.Ed (Hons) NPQH

Welcome to our school website, an opportunity to explore everyday life in our school community and appreciate the vast array of opportunities we offer all our children.

Here at Broughton Primary School we encourage each individual child to strive to achieve their very best in all areas of school life within a happy, safe and stimulating environment. Our curriculum aims to challenge our children to become independent and aspirational learners who leave our school as well mannered and caring members of society.

We aim to make sure that memories of primary school are happy and by working together as a team with School Directors, staff, children, parents, church and our village community we are ensuring that we give all our children the best possible start to their journey through academic life.

Enjoy your visit!

Not only do my children get a very good education but also the opportunity to take part in the numerous out of school activities that are on offer. The school is positive and friendly.

Both our daughters are currently in Year One at Broughton Primary. They are always extremely happy and excited to attend school, and relish the varied learning opportunities provided for them. They particularly enjoyed their weekly sessions in the forest. They have also had the chance to take part in extra-curricular clubs. We really appreciate the fact that our children feel safe and happy when in school. Staff members are always happy to listen to any queries and questions and are keen to help. Thank you to everybody at Broughton Primary School - a fantastic school that we cannot speak more highly of!

We wanted to thank Mrs Wynne for her thoughtful, considered, detailed, insightful comments at our parent teacher interview today. We really appreciate everything she has done to set our children off on their educational journey.

I had a wonderful time at the Reception coffee afternoon. The children made some beautiful gifts for Mother's Day & were thrilled that they could present these to their mums at school. The Reception staff have obviously worked incredibly hard to prepare for this afternoon & it was very much appreciated. As a working mum I often miss out on sharing school events with my child and was pleased I could attend this, it was lovely. Thanks again.

A lovely school where each child is known and taught as an individual. There are lots of interesting extra curricular activities for the children to get involved in too
