“Let your light shine.”  Matthew 5:16


Broadbottom Church of England (VC) Primary School is rooted in Christianity with close links to the Diocese and local church, Saint Michaels and All Angels Church.

We aim to embrace the community in our approach to education and believe that it takes ‘a village to make a school’.

At Broadbottom Church of England (VC) Primary School each pupil is seen as an individual light that we enable to shine during the journey of their education with us and beyond.  Christian values are alive in our community with pupils who are polite, kind, respectful, honest, responsible and resilient.

All pupils are encouraged to believe in themselves and support others to achieve their goals.  We celebrate success and enjoy sharing positive outcomes with each other.  Pupils at Broadbottom are taught to be courageous advocates for themselves, their community and the world.

Through the school values and ethos we aim for all our pupils to achieve the following outcomes:
