School Vision

Broadbottom CE Primary School promises to provide a happy, safe, Christian learning environment for all pupils to flourish and thrive, developing talents, interests, excellent learning attitudes and behaviours.

Our Christian vision is rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ, promoting love, compassion, forgiveness, and justice. We offer an environment that reflects these values, fostering an atmosphere of kindness, empathy, and understanding.

We aim to develop life skills, tolerance and resilience, in a school environment that cherishes individuality and positively encourages pupils. As a church school, pupils are taught to have a good moral compass with many models of exceptional behaviour which point to God and exemplify beacons of light.
