Message from the Head
Bramford Primary serves a strong, established, Black Country Community centred on Woodsetton. Our school is a happy, thriving community housed in a two form entry building with its own Nursery as a key feature of our Foundation Stage. A new suite of classrooms, a new administration wing and a community sports hall were completed in October 2005.
There is a particularly strong team approach at Bramford. The school's ethos supports our caring and considerate approach to everyone associated with our school.
Our Community Association is the key to our close links with parents, outside agencies and other partners. We are an Extended School offering clubs, activities, childcare and holiday play schemes, in addition to training and adult education for parents and friends of the school.
The staff's team approach to all aspects of school life has proved itself highly effective and efficient. Our pupils progress through a broad and balanced primary curriculum which lays great emphasis on creativity. We endeavour to develop all of our pupil's talents and abilities - this is equally true of all the staff that work with me.
Bramford is part of a large Network Learning Community sharing and actively learning with and from our colleagues. We have established links with our local specialist sports college and aim to contribute to the health, enjoyment and development of our local community via our sports coaches.
We were awarded the National Primary Trusts Sports Award for risk-taking and knowledge sharing in June 2001 and are a specialist coaching venue for the Football Association.
Our aim is to address the life long learning needs of our neighbourhood for nursery pupils through to grandparents.
Our School Rules are based upon points 1-7as follows. At the beginning of each school year the children and their new teacher discuss and devise their own rules based on these 7 points.
Bramford Primary School expects everyone to:
1. Be polite and respectful at all times.
2. Speak to others as I would like others to speak to me.
3. Always listen carefully.
4. Always walk when moving around school.
5. Consider the safety of myself and others in all my actions.
6. Always look after school property, property of other pupils and my own property.
As a school we reject:
3. Any form of deceit
6. DishonestyBearing in mind that Bramford caters for children from 3 to 11 years and that such young children rarely have the ability or experience to make their own decisions without outside help, there needs to exist a climate and support network that will help them. This network involves home and school as equal partners and in signing the Home & School Agreement we give our commitment to this.
