Our federation of schools is committed to providing excellence in education. Our aim is for children to leave for the next stage of their education with the confidence and aptitude to make their own valuable contribution to the community, for staff to recognise their contribution to this development of children and parents to genuinely support their son or daughter's education.
At Broadlands we aim to provide an inclusive, caring and supportive environment which has high expectations and values all members of our school community. We recognise and respect the needs and aspirations of individuals and provide opportunities for them all to make the best possible progress and attain the highest personal academic achievements.

Year 5 have been looking at the Maya Number System in History this afternoon. We took advantage of the beautiful weather, using concrete resources to replicate the Maya Numbers. Fantastic behaviour and engagement from everyone. #BLANDShistory #mayanumbersystem #activelearning https://t.co/vZFmaJ85TF

Today Year 5 have been soaring deeper into our science on Earth and Space. We looked at how the Moon orbits the Earth and where the light on the moon comes from by creating models to show how it orbits. Mr Bree also demonstrated how gravity works. #BLANDSscience #earthandspace https://t.co/AafnHqrUiN
Year 1&2 have been working hard in DT to design and make a catapult. Today they got to test which catapult can launch the marshmallow the furthest depending on how long the 'arm' is. We kept everything else the same. We measured the distance and worked out the average. #BLANDSdt https://t.co/MEtRkc4RBY
Today in Year 1&2, we had a little drama activity to learn about how seeds are dispersed by wind, water, animals &exploding. Then we looked inside a pomegranate, mango, grapefruit, kiwi, apple and plum. After, we had a tasty, healthy treat in the sun. #BLANDSscience #BLANDSdrama https://t.co/lysBiJj9Gy

Year 5 met King George this morning. (AKA Mr Brie) He asked them to come up with a plan to stop the Highwayman's reign of terror. They worked in groups to come up with the best plan. King George was very impressed with their ideas. #BLANDSenglishwriting #thehighwayman #poetry https://t.co/rOyLcjJxON
Year 5 were given a hard task. Year 5 took it in their stride! They were asked to evaluate chocolate bars. A tough job I hear you say! They were fantastic at it. Evaluating the wrapper, appearance, taste and texture. Some chocolate was loved, some not so much. #BLANDSdt https://t.co/LQcGwkISsZ
Book reading club went down a treat at lunch time. The children are really enjoying being able to visit the library weekly. #BLANDSreading https://t.co/tSXB2NOlKh
