We invite all prospective pupils and parents to come and visit us for a school tour. We would love the opportunity to show you our amazing school and some of the incredible learning taking place here every day.
Below are some commonly asked questions during tours and some answers:
How many children are in the school?
We are one-form entry throughout the school, meaning that we have just one class per year group. Maximum class sizes are 30 and we currently have approximately 140 pupils across the whole school.
What does a typical day at Broadwater look like?
In most year groups, the mornings are geared towards some of our core subjects such as English and Maths. In the afternoon, pupils tend to learn through the "wider curriculum" subjects which are guided at Broadwater by our project approach. You can read more about our curriculum structure and aims here
How do you cater for different learning needs?
We are strongly of the opinion that the majority of children learn best alongside their peers, supported by skillful adults who can adapt and scaffold the learning to meet their individual needs, whether they need additional support or extra challenge. This means that most educational needs are catered for in the classroom. However, we also have a range of strategies and tools for helping children with other skills at other points in the day. Our SENCo coordinates these tools. You can read more information about our approach to special educational needs on our SEND page.
Do you offer wraparound care?
We currently offer a school Breakfast Club which is open from 7.30am, but not after school provision. If you would like some details about our Breakfast Club you can read more information here.
