Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you have enjoyed receiving daily updates on the rewards your children are receiving through the class dojo. I know many of you have communicated positively back to the teacher. We have plans to develop this further. Please give me any feedback on how we can improve ways to encourage good behaviour.
It was great to see so many of you at the swimming gala on Friday. I would say the number of parent spectators has doubled since last year. It was a very close competition with Emerald winning just ahead of Scarlet by 6 points who were just ahead of Gold by 7 points. Well done to all the children who took part. The gala showed the whole range of swimming skills in our school. In fact recently one of our AIM swimmers achieved a personal best that was 4th fastest in the whole of Bristol for her age group.
We are looking forward to the summer terms. For the first time in many years we are joining with the Infant School to host a joint summer BBQ on Friday 30th June on both sites. Please come and join us. Also if you are able to give up an hour or more of your time after school that day to help run a stall or make teas and coffees, we'd really appreciate it. Let the office know.
Mr Colin Thompson
Welcome to Broomhill Junior School. We have 240 places, taking children from the ages of 7 to 11 years. We are a school that aims to foster children’s learning through all that we do and equip children in ”learning for life”.
We are very proud of our school, the achievements of the children and the quality of the day‑to-day learning that takes place here. We have a hugely dedicated staff team and governing body who help support a very happy and successful school.
Our seven values of Respect, Inclusion, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Creativity, Resilience and Collaboration, are the foundation of our school. From these flow our aims, curriculum, organisation and procedures.

* become independent and take responsibility for themselves and their actions
* be confident and self-motivated
* be respectful and show thoughtfulness for the feelings and views of others

* value reading in a variety of contexts and be able to easily access information
