‘Because of the quality of the curriculum, pupils’ personal development and welfare is good. Their social and emotional needs are well met.’ – OFSTED 2016

Broad Oak Community Primary School is a possibly the best kept secret in the Heathfield area! Situated in the heart of Broad Oak it has extensive, and varied grounds, with a field opposite for sport, play and forest school provision. The team of staff are enthusiastic and supportive of all children, and their parents and carers. Prized by the community, the school brings an ethos of respect and dedication, promoting life-long learning skills such as perseverance and courage.

We currently have 117 pupils at the school, learning in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The curriculum is well pitched, creative and exciting, using cross curricular and cross phase learning opportunities, the National Curriculum is delivered in an innovative way. The site is spacious, with every area being used effectively to promote good learning habits for all ages and levels of learning. Areas around the school, such as the vegetable patch, wild garden and reflective space allow children to enrich their learning beyond the classroom. Our great results in July 2017 demonstrate the areas that KS2 are in line with, and above, National results, and in KS1 our results are well above the National average. Our phonics and Early Years results also show where the school is in line with or above the National results.

Pupils and staff work productively together, in a quiet and nurturing environment where every child is known, and there is time to discuss and discover. Many visits take place out of the classroom which further engage the pupils, and respond to their interests and aspirations. We are here to provide an excellent education for children through the whole day – from Breakfast club to after school club! Come along and see for yourself. Our open days are on Wednesday, 1st November 6-7pm and Thursday 2nd November 10-11 am.

We have high expectations of all our pupils for their work and behaviour and we work hard to ensure everyone achieves their very best. We want your child’s time at Broad Oak to be happy and exciting as well as educational.

We are very happy to receive you as a visitor at any time to our school, so come and find the real story behind this best kept secret!

With warmest wishes
