Our History

Broadmoor Primary School is a  Bracknell Forest Borough Council  school. It was founded on its present site in 1863, on land provided by the Broadmoor Institution. It was originally established for the education of the children of staff at the hospital, and started with only eighteen pupils.

Additional buildings were completed in 1969, and many other changes have taken place during the school's history. A new library was built in 2002 and opened by artist Tony Hart.


Crowthorne Parish Nursery opened on the site in 1995 as a joint resource with the Crowthorne Church of England School. In 2001 the nursery was integrated into the school building via a walkway.

The school's modern crest reflects its historical association with Broadmoor (the rose - still to be seen carved on the wall of the original schoolmaster's house), the village of Crowthorne (the crow on the thorn bush) and the Royal County of Berkshire (the crown and two lions).

Today Broadmoor Primary School is a thriving village school serving the needs of the community of Crowthorne. It caters for approximately 170 pupils, aged between 5 and 11 years. Crowthorne Parish Nursery has facilities for 52 part-time children. Both the school and the nursery have strong links with the local community.

Our Classes

We have seven classes, one for each year group.  Children are admitted to the Reception class at the beginning of the term in which they have their fifth birthday.


Each class has its own page on our website. Which page will you choose to look at?

General Information

Car Parking

Car parking at the school is very limited, and is intended for staff and official visitors only. There are parking bays along Lower Broadmoor Road and on School Hill. Please do not park on the yellow-lined areas on these roads or anywhere which causes a nuisance to our neighbours or other road users.

Coffee Mornings

Once a week at 9-9:30am, there is a coffee morning organised in the Hall by the Year 6 pupils. It is a chance for parents from all year groups to get together for a chat. There are toys laid out for younger siblings to play with whilst their mums relax. At present, these are held on Tuesday morning.


Children in the Reception class and the Nursery follow the objectives of the Foundation Stage.


The National Curriculum brings the year groups together to form Key Stages.  Years 1 and 2 form Key Stage 1 and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 form Key Stage 2. The children in Year 2 (at the end of Key Stage 1) and the children in Year 6 (at the end of Key Stage 2) undertake formal assessments, called Standard Assessment Tests (or SATs for short).  These take place during the month of May.


The curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 follows the guidelines issued by Qualification and Curriculum Authority. The children study the following subjects as part of the National Curriculum.


English (Literacy) History
Mathematics (Numeracy) Geography
Science Art
Information and Communication Technology Music
Design and Technology (including Food Technology) Physical Education (PE)
Religious Education (RE) Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
French (Years 5 and 6 only)


Parents have a right to withdraw their children from Religious Education, Collective Worship and Sex Education.  If children are withdrawn from any of these classes, they will be sent to another classroom with relevant work to complete unaided.

Holidays and Absences

Schools continue to be under pressure to dissuade parents from taking holidays during term time. Some schools are asking for letters from employers to prove that there are no alternative date available. More than 10 days holiday are classed as excessive and should be unauthorised. Similarly when parents fail to notify school about their child's absence, this is again recorded as unauthorised. Please think very carefully before you take your child out of school during term time and always notify us of the reason for absence, prefeably before the event

Pedestrian Entrances

Please use the pedestrian entrances from the footpath only - the car park should not be used as a pedestrian entrance to the school due to the danger to children. The school grounds must not be used as a shortcut.


All children require a change of shoes for playtime and in good weather for outdoor PE lessons

PE lessons

Please try to ensure that all clothes and items of sports kit are marked with your child's name.

School Day 

The school day starts at 8.50am on each weekday. The Attendance Register and the Dinner Register are called, and then the children go into the hall for Assembly.

There is a morning break from 10.30am to 11am. Weather permitting, the children play outside in the playground or on the playing field (unless the weather has recently been very wet), where they are supervised by two duty teachers. Fruit and milk are available for purchase in school for 10 pence. Children are not permitted to eat sweets or biscuits.

Lunch break takes place between 12 and 1 o'clock. School meals are served and packed lunches eaten in the hall, and the children play outside in the playground and on the playing field. Four midday controllers supervise the children during this break. During wet lunch breaks, the children undertake activities in the classrooms. Two Buddies help with supervision in Reception and Years 1 and 2.

The Attendance Register is called again at 1 o'clock when the children have returned to their classrooms.

School finishes at 3.15pm.

School Lunches

The standard and quality of school lunches have greatly improved. Fresh vegetables are used, better cuts of meat and no flavoured drinks. So ask your child if they would like to try one. It is a rolling menu over three weeks so there is plenty of choose from - here is our current menu

Have your circumstances changed? You may be eligible for free school meals. A claim form can be obtained from the school office. If you are unsure about your eligibility please speak to Mrs David in the office who will help to clarify the situation


Unless they have been asked to do so, please do not allow your child to bring toys to school - they belong at home. Toys are easily lost or damaged at school, and much valuable teaching time can be wasted sorting out the problems they cause.


Please ensure that the children are wearing school uniform. All jumpers, t-shirts and sweaters should be in school colours. Hairbands etc should also match school colours and shoes/sandles should be suitable to school wear (no heels)

Virtual Tour

Romans Estate Agents in Crowthorne have kindly arranged a virtual tour of our school buildings and the grounds. You can see our hall, our new library, two of our classrooms, the nursery, and the playground and playing fields.


If you would like to get a better look, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and arrange an appointment to visit us in person. We look forward to seeing you.

"Walk on Wednesday" (WOW)

The children can win a free swimming session at the Bracknell Sports Centre if they Walk On Wednesdays. Please help your child achieve this and improve their fitness by parking your car further away and walking to school
