Broughton-in-Amounderness Church of England Primary School is a voluntary aided primary
school in the Parish of St John the Baptist Broughton, in the Diocese of Blackburn. It is
administered by the Local Education Authority (LEA) and caters for children aged 4 to 11
years. Its voluntary aided status means that a majority of Governors are appointed by the
Blackburn Diocesan Education Council, the PCC of the Parish and the Trustees of the school.
We are proud to be members of the Lancashire and Blackburn families, and also the family
of schools within the BAE SYSTEMS International Schools’ Network.
- Provide a high quality education in a Christian setting whereby children can grow in knowledge and understanding, and in the acquisition of appropriate skills, attitudes and values.
- Foster dynamic interaction between home, church, school and the wider community.
- Make prayer and worship experiences which are central to daily life and contribute successfully to the development of faith of each individual in the school community.
- Create a family environment in which all members of the school community learn to relate positively to each other.
The school curriculum follows the National Curriculum. As a Church of
England school Religious Education is a compulsory subject and the children engage in a daily act
of worship and prayer. It is requested that parents speak with the Headteacher if they wish to
withdraw pupils from Religious Education or worship.
We have a strong commitment to teaching children basic skills so that they can be
confident learners in all areas of school life. All children cover the core subjects of
English, Mathematics, Science and Information Communication Technology. They
also study History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education and
All teachers and classes spend valuable time covering issues
related to Personal, Social and Health Education and we prepare children to become
responsible citizens. Reception and Year 1 children work within Early Learning Goals
in preparation for the National Curriculum – experiencing a healthy curriculum through
play and practical experience.
Pre-school children are invited into school before their official entry date. This is to provide a
smooth transition between home and school and to alleviate any worries or fears children or
parents may experience. Where possible the Reception teacher also visits pupils in their preschool
context ready for transition into school.
We cater for many areas of children's enthusiasm and interests through activities offered at
lunchtime, after and outside school.
The following clubs represent the activities available:
- Church Cottage Club
- Gardening Club
- Art Club
- Mathematics and ICT clubs
- Sports Clubs
