    Head Teachers report

    Welcome to the annual report for Broughton-in-Furness Church of England School.

    The last school year has flown by and I have enjoyed another super year here at Broughton. Every day I have counted my blessings having been fortunate to lead such a wonderful school the children, staff, governors, parents and community.

    I would like to convey my thanks to the Broughton School Association which continues, through tireless fundraising, to support the school in so many ways. This year the children have benefitted in many ways including a whole school trip to Muncaster at Christmas, support with funding for urban week and the Y5/6 residential to London. I encourage all parents to support the BSA it really does make a difference.

    In school the staff have worked hard to plan and implement a topic based curriculum. It has been wonderful to observe the enthusiasm of the children with many bringing in artefacts to share and support their learning. This approach has also allowed us to take learning outdoors more frequently and make learning much more meaningful. Thank you for your support with this. I thank everyone for their commitment to our children this ensures each child has a high quality learning experience in an environment where they feel safe and valued.

    Children have had the opportunity to access many extra curricular activities this year: chess, football, orienteering, knitting, gardening and Engineering Club. Thank you to all staff, parents and friends of the school that make these opportunities possible.I offer sincere thanks to all who have had an input into our school this year.My final thanks, as always, remain with the staff and governors for their dedication and support.

    I feel privileged to have lead Broughton School and as I say Goodbye to our current Year 6 Anna, Callum, Michael, Oliver and Stephen and all the other children, staff, governors and families I do have a sense of sadness. Along with that is a sense of excitement; Broughton is a wonderful school and there is so much to look forward to in the future under the leadership of Mrs Jacki Graham-Kevan.

    Club Reports

    Fifteen children regularly attended football this year, with both boys and girls from Reception to Year 6 attending.

    Another great season with the Junior Team taking second place in The North Lonsdale Small School League. This gave them the opportunity to play at Barrow AFCs Holker Street ground. It was a wonderful experience for everyone involved.

    We will be sorry to see the Year 6 team members leave but we are sure we will see lots of new members arriving in September.

    As always a big thank you to all the parents who help with the training sessions, transport and washing the kit we couldnt do it without your support.

    Our prayers were answered and the sun shone for our planned sports day. We were very fortunate that the sports field had been resurfaced and the children had a beautiful safe green space to participate on no running around coned off holes this year!

    As always the day was greeted with much excitement and enthusiasm; the children were also looking forward to it! With the children all dressed in their rainbow team colours, equipment ready for the races, chairs for family and friends it was time to begin.

    Every child participated in races of their own choice and there was a lot to choose from: running, skipping, egg and spoon, bean bags on bats, relay and obstacle races. All the children really tried their best and I know they had a super day from the smiles and deafening cheers for their teams!

    Mums, Dads and toddlers joined in the fun too and there were some spectacular performances on the track! At the finish line all competitors received a ticket to recognise their efforts and points were awarded to their team accordingly.

    This year the winning team was Buttermere.Well done and thank you to everyone involved!

    Chess Club has again taken place in lunch-times in the Autumn and Spring Terms. In Autumn, we played a school tournament and friendly matches and in the Spring Term we again entered the British Land Chess Championship, a national event. Several children qualified for regional competitions in their own age-groups. Once again, the children showed good attitudes throughout, in commitment, concentration and sportsmanship. Chess Club will start again in September. Mrs. Worthington

    This year saw an increase of 50% in the number of pupils attending the club and all the pupils have been very enthusiastic, showing great imagination and a good work ethic.

    We were pleased to have a talk by Alison Jones & Sarrawat Rehman from the University of Leeds about bio-mechanical engineering, which due to the snow became an interactive internet presentation (how high-tech are we?). The club entered their first competition, run by BAe Systems, which was based on bio-mimicry. Whilst none of our entries won, the designs and models produced were superb and a good time was had by all.The pupils have also been very busy covering many other aspects of engineering: theyve built and destroyed bridges made from lollipop sticks; made models of Tudor houses; built up the electric go-kart and started to

    investigate charging the batteries by solar panels to make it more environmentally friendly; and even made birds nests of all shapes and sizes just using one hand.

    Photos of many of the activities can be found on the school website.

    Were happy to report that there have been no unauthorised absences this year. However, authorised absences have been high due to an increase in holidays taken during term time. We would remind parents that we are only able to authorise 1O days holiday in a school year. The LA and Government are putting pressure on schools to improve attendance, and absence due to holidays is a major factor in this.

    Broughton School is able to fulfil all the requirements with regard to pupils with disabilities (as set out in the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act). Our Special Educational Needs policy makes provision for any disabled pupils and the physical layout of the school on one level makes for full wheelchair access.

    Were pleased to report that this year, as last year, weve had no breaches of school security. A few incidents of vandalism resulted in minor damage in the grounds and to some PE equipment. We have been supported by PC John Baldwin and this appears to be resolved. This has led to the Governors taking the decision to limit access to the grounds to authorised users only.

    Tuesday morning 28th June at 6.30am we set off from school to pick up the children and staff from Cambridge Primary School. Everyone was very excited, some of us were perhaps a little nervous at the prospect of four days away from home but this was soon forgotten as we hit the motorway and headed off to London.

    Gerald our driver did a fantastic job and we arrived safely at The Queen Mary University at 3.30pm. We found our rooms, unpacked quickly and had our first dinner. The food was great, sometimes a little spicy, but most people enjoyed every meal (especially breakfast!)

    After dinner we had a flight on the London Eye, again some people were nervous but the fantastic views soon had everyone distracted. We recognised lots of la
