PSA Hallowe’en Disco


Our PSA Hallowe’en Discos were held on Friday night, and both were very well attended!

Our PSA decorated the hall to give it a spooky feel, provided lots of tasty treats for sale, and of course organised lots of dancing and fun for everyone!

There were so many fantastic costumes, people really made a great effort to get into the Hallowe’en spirit!

The PSA made a total of £1090, which is a fantastic total! Huge thanks must go to our PSA for organising such a successful event, and also thanks to pupils, parents, carers and staff who attended for helping reach that great amount!


We hope you all have a happy Hallowe’en! If you are out guising tonight, remember to always go with an adult, and only to people that you know, to stay safe!


Big Playground Tidy Up!


We are planning the annual ‘Big Tidy’ of our school grounds on Saturday 12th November between 10am and 1pm. All volunteers of help from families would be welcome- even if you can only spare an hour, please come along with your child/children.

Refreshments will be provided from the PSA and we will also be sharing our ‘Loose Parts Play’ equipment.

Please let us know by email if you and your child/children plan to attend this event.

Thank you for your continued support!



wowSince we launched our new website in January, it has been viewed an amazing 47,600 times, with almost 6,500 visitors!

It would be great to hit 50,000 views by the end of January, our first anniversary!

Let’s see if we can do it!

Class Information pages have been updated and are now being used to share class newsletters, homework challenges and examples of successful learning, so even more reason to check in with us regularly to keep up to date with the life and work of Broughton Primary.

Thanks again for your support!

House Morning!

On the last day of term before the October break, we held a house morning in school.

The children worked together in their houses,sometimes across stages, and carried out a range of activities under the theme of ‘Team Building’, so they had to collaborate and co-operate well with each other to succeed!

Lots of fun and quality learning opportunities were had, as you can see by our selection of photos below!

Lagganlia- Part 2!


P7 returned from their very successful residential excursion to Lagganlia on Friday.

We all had a fantastic week, full of a range of different outdoor activities. Among the activities we were lucky to take part in were-

  • Gorge walking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Kayaking
  • Archery
  • Snowboarding
  • Hill Walking
  • Shelter Building
  • Rock Climbing
  • Mapping and Compass Skills
  • Abseiling

We also had the chance to practice important life skills that developed independence- being away from home for 4 nights, making beds, keeping dorm rooms and communal areas tidy and organising ourselves to follow detailed instructions.

Lagganlia staff were very impressed with the efforts of our pupils. They were enthusiastic about their activities, persevered when things were challenging, and supported and encouraged each other to keep going to succeed.

We are very proud of such glowing reports- huge well done P7! We hope you enjoyed yourselves! You’ve made some very special memories.

Below are a selection of the many photos we took last week!
