Macmillan coffee morning

Unfortunately, despite all our good intentions, we will be unable to hold our Macmillan coffee morning next week as planned as we have several staff either out of school or in meetings who would normally help to organise the event. We hope to pick this up again in future years. Meanwhile if you ware looking for a local coffee morning click on this link to find one near you.

Enjoy Sunday!

A sad day as Mr Hartley says goodbye

It was a sad day today as Mr Hartley left us for his new job. I have said my thank yous to Mr Hartley over and over but just felt that I needed to formally say my thanks for all of the hard work, effort, dedication and love that he has given to Broadmeadow over the last few years. I think that Mr Hartley was quite surprised by the reaction in school this week and the level of emotion  – I did try to explain that when Broadmeadow takes someone to their hearts they feel it deeply. I think he knows that now!

I know he will be really missed by children, parents and staff but I am sure you will join with me in wishing him lots of luck and best wishes for the future.

Great barbeque lunch today!

Thanks not only to our staff but also to City Serve who came today for our barbeque lunch. The children absolutely loved it (as did the staff!), even the sun shone! We look forward to having more of these events when the weather is more reliable. watch this space.

The week ahead …

As most of you are aware I normally put a weekly diary up on a Sunday. However as we are just back to school following the summer break there is very little to report at the moment so it is looking a bit thin!

Monday –

Tuesday – Year 4 have visitors in for their WOW starter, City Serve are coming in for a barbeque dinner day (if you would like to opt in and normally have sandwiches then please pay online and inform the office). Sports coaches in at lunchtime.

Wednesday – Sports coaches in at lunchtime. First swimming session for 6C after lunch.

Thursday – Sports coaches in at lunchtime.

Friday – Sports coaches in at lunchtime. Mr Hartley’s last day at Broadmeadow.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!


What a start!

We have had a super start back to school – well done everyone for the effort this week. I think children and staff have enjoyed being back together as our little Broadmeadow family.

On a sad note I am sure that most of you have heard the news that Mr Hartley will be leaving us next Friday for pastures new. His background was with secondary age children, and while he has enjoyed the time with younger children he has made the difficult decision to return to his roots. So he will be moving to James Brindley special school and I can quite honestly say they are lucky to have him, he will be missed at Broadmeadow.
