Welcome to our world!

The pupils & staff of Bradwell Village welcome you to our school.

Our school is a fun, friendly and happy place to be. It’s lovely, colourful and, sometimes, even tidy! There is a huge field that we play on and two playgrounds. There is also a massive range of equipment from playground skipping ropes to portable indoor basketball hoops. At break times you can have races and play football. It will keep you as fit as Kelly Holmes!

The school displays are beautiful and eye-catching; wonderful artwork covers the walls! Even the shared areas between classes are bright, colourful and filled with the work we’ve done in lessons. The teachers are nice, helpful and very, very funny. They are always encouraging and want you and your friends to do your best in every piece of work from Numeracy to P.E.

Keep exploring our website or, if you don’t believe us, come and see for yourself!

BVS Links With Gwali School in South Africa

Just before half term one of our governors, Mrs Pat Scrimshaw, visited South Africa to find out about their education system and to work with some of the more remote schools. Whilst there, she took the opportunity to link BVS with a small Primary School in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The aim being to undertake joint curriculum activities that will enhance children’s learning in both countries.

Gwali Primary School is located in the Tyume Valley, about two hour’s car drive from East London Airport on the coast. It has 118 students aged between 5 and 13 years. There are four teachers and they have one vacant post. The Principal of the school is Mr Joe Peta. Surrounded by beautiful and natural vegetation, leading to a nearby forest, the school is situated close to the kraal of Chief Amagwali’s house. Next to the School is a big dam.

It is hoped that the joint work between Gwali Primary School and BVS will result in a successful application to the British Council for a grant to enable two teachers from each school to make a short visit to the other. Such visits will extend the knowledge and understanding of the children in the two schools in addition to the visiting teachers. We hope this will be a wonderful learning experience for everyone concerned!

International School Award

BVS is celebrating! We have been given the prestigious DfES International School Award.

A high profile awards ceremony was held in London hosted by the broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby.

Mr Dunkley is currently organising our very proactive International Group, and as one BVS pupil stated, "I want to find out how it’s possible to be creative with a school in another part of the world.”

Nathan, Harry, Sam & Reece have produced a BearWaves Report about Black History Month. Click here to find out more.

After going through a flyer sent to the group by Mrs Kennington the group agreed to do some research into how the school could get involved in the proposed Olympic Games project.
