Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to introduce myself as the Head Teacher of Broughton Primary School.  I consider it a privilege to have been given this opportunity to lead such a fantastic school and to continue to build on the very strong positive ethos which is evident within the school.

Our school aims to create a caring and secure environment in which every child feels happy, confident and valued as an individual. Our central aim is to provide a well-rounded education to enable each pupil to become a responsible member of the community.

I am a firm believer in the importance of the partnership between school and home and the role it plays in ensuring a high quality education for all pupils.  Therefore I hope that we can work with our families within a climate of trust and mutual respect to ensure the highest possible learning experience for our pupils.

Since the school was opened over a century ago in 1896, our motto has been Sic Itur Ad Astra, which might be very roughly translated as Reach for the Stars! This very neatly encapsulates our twenty-first century philosophy, which is to encourage in all our pupils the belief that they can achieve anything in life as long as they put their minds to it.

All parents, whether current or prospective, are very welcome to visit the school. Please contact me if you would like to do this in order to make an appointment.

Yours sincerely

Samantha Rushforth
