Welcome

As the Headteacher of Broomgrove Junior School it is a pleasure to be able to welcome you to our website.

“At Broomgrove, we expect everyone to work together to achieve high standards of learning and behaviour in a safe, happy and stimulating environment where both children and adults are valued.”

At the heart of all aspects of our school life are the values of respect, excellence and friendship. Furthermore, we believe that working in partnership with our children, their parents and carers, governors, and our local community is critical to ensuring our success as a school. A supportive atmosphere is fostered within which children feel confident to express their individuality, their talents and know that success in any aspect of their lives will be rewarded and celebrated. We are passionate that the School flourishes by providing a positive and stimulating learning environment created by caring and dedicated staff, which results in excellent progress for all our learners.


I look forward to meeting you.

Kindest regards,
Matthew Fuller


Children’s Author Visit

 

   
     


Children’s author E.R. Reilly visited the school recently to inspire the children in their story writing endeavours. He kept the school enthralled as he introduced the children to his series of books which include; Harriet the Horrible, Rashnu, Tall Tales, The Look Outs and The Real Boy Wizard. He told the children about the inspiration behind the books, as well as some of his experiences in life which included being a body guard for ‘Hulk Hogan’! The children were given ideas for stories in a series of ‘Writing Challenges’ using the plots of the books, in the hope it will inspire them with their writing.

E.R. Reilly’s books are available for order through the school, all of which will be personally signed by the author.

At the end of the talk E.R. Reilly remarked that Broomgrove was the ‘best’ school he had visited on these talks; He praised the children for their behaviour, enthusiasm and the questions they asked.
