Our School Mission Statement
'Working together to achieve our best'
We know the importance of working in collaboration with all stakeholders in order for us to provide and achieve the best for the children.
Our School Vision
By working together, with parents, to achieve our best, we enable all our children to reach their full potential. We work hard to ensure that every pupil develops as a happy and successful child. We value and celebrate all of their achievements. Our aim is for all our pupils to become considerate, enquiring and self-confident young people.
We provide a safe environment where our children can be themselves and who celebrate each other’s uniqueness and differences, who uphold fundamental British Values and embody our Broadoak Character Values.
We provide our children with a connected and progressive, broad and balanced ‘Backpack for Life’ curriculum. It is exciting and challenging and develops all children academically and personally.
We instill in our children a life-long love of learning and develop within them knowledge and skills needed to ensure they are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
I am happy. I am a Broadoak child.
The school and my parents work together to help me achieve my best. They guide me and show me how to work and play positively with my friends. I show respect, at all times, by being polite, kind and considerate. I am accepting of peoples' differences and know we are all special and unique. I strive for excellence and work hard to achieve my goals. It is important to me to celebrate both my success and the success of others. I learn from excellent teachers in an exciting environment that prepares me with a backpack of skills for life. I have an enquiring mind and am fascinated by the world around me. I have a love of learning that will carry on as I grow.
I am happy and proud to be a Broadoak child.

Our School Values:
Broadoak Backpack Character Values
Values help to build character and shape the mindsets and behaviour of our children now and in their future life. So, their importance is not underestimated. We endeavor to create confident, kind, happy and resilient students that are fully prepared for their life ahead both in future education and employment through their attitude and attributes.
We have 20 values - chosen by staff, governors, parents and children.
Each fortnight, we focus on a different value and our values are embedded within our curriculum. At Broadoak, we are committed to actively promoting British values, which complement our own vision and values. This forms part of our wider work in school with children in relation to their Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education (SMSC). At the heart of these values, lie good relationships in which teachers and students work together towards common goals.
- Fundamental British Values:
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Embedding our school values and British Values in day-to-day life can help shape each pupil’s understanding of the world. Everyday activities that focus on developing character and values will embed them as an underpinning part of pupils’ lives.
The 52 Lives ‘Kind School’ Pledge
As a 52 Lives Kind School, we pledge our commitment to encouraging a culture of kindness in our classrooms: including both kindness to ourselves and to others.
We understand kindness is a powerful agent for positive change, so the kindness demonstrated within our school will ripple out into our homes, the local community and ultimately the world.
We believe kindness is not just about single kind acts, but rather an attitude and approach to life that threads through everything we do and every interaction we have.
We understand the important role kindness plays in boosting children’s mental and physical health.
We believe that ‘Kind’ is the most important thing a person can be.
