On behalf of the Governors, staff and pupils I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child on joining our village school. We trust that your child will settle in quickly with us, be happy in these surroundings, and contribute to our school life.

Broadwindsor School is a happy village school with high expectations of its pupils and staff. We have an important part to play in the education of your child, and we are, in effect, entering a partnership, with your child at the centre. We wish to support you and your child throughout your time at Broadwindsor and to do this we ask for your commitment to our aims and an understanding of our philosophy.

We believe that all children have the right to a full and broad curriculum and that their social, emotional and moral needs should be taken carefully into account. We look to you as parents to support us through practical issues, for example reading, homework and study, and to encourage your child to have a positive attitude towards school and a desire to learn.

We look forward to an exciting and developing future.

Nigel Arnold
