“Let your light shine.” Matthew 5:16
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to be the Headteacher of this wonderful, semi rural, caring and loving church school.
To all perspective parents, I extend a very warm welcome, on behalf of the staff and governors at Broadbottom Church of England (VC) Primary School. We are extremely proud of our unique, small and friendly, village school, with strong parental engagement, community links and membership of St Michael and All Angels Parish (part of Chester Diocese.)
At Broadbottom Primary School, we encourage all our pupils to “Let your light shine”, by recognising potential, developing individual interests, talents and promoting models of good behaviour. We take our vision from Matthew 5:16, where Jesus is speaking to his disciples during his Sermon on the Mount. This verse encourages believers to live in a way that reflects the teachings and values of Jesus, by letting their light shine, it means they should exhibit good deeds, acts of kindness, and righteousness in their daily life. We offer this model at Broadbottom, to all our pupils inclusively, as an example of the importance of being a positive role model to others. Their good works should reflect God’s character and ultimately point others to Him.
Through a strong commitment to the school vision, we empower all pupils to be proud of themselves, develop aspirations and fulfill their true potential. Pupils at Broadbottom, are taught to succeed, not just at school, but as educated citizens, within their own community and on a wider global scale. We aim for pupils learning to be outward facing, enabling them to become resilient and happy individuals, who not only care about themselves, but also about others and the environment.
At our small loving school, children experience a caring, calm and inclusive environment with key values of tolerance and respect for others. Staff know all the children personally, their interests and families individually. You can be confident that on a daily basis, we do our utmost to care for and nurture all our pupils.
The school community is lively and happy, with well behaved, hardworking pupils, who flourish and thrive in the wonderful atmosphere created by our staff. We always welcome visits to the school to witness this first hand and meet our pupils, who speak passionately about the opportunities they receive as members of the school. With extensive playground facilities, we offer an exciting environment for our pupils to enjoy a large range of physical activities during their freetime. Our beautiful, tranquil, community, outdoor art gallery offers a stimulating, spiritual place for pupils to refuel, reflect, read or chat, and an exhibition area for works of art from the community, school and pupils.
Church schools look for the common good of the whole community and its environment, and they respect diversity, freedom of religion and belief. All pupils are welcome to join our school. If you would like to come and visit, please contact us on 01457 762382, we look forward to meeting all new perspective parents and children.
