Welcome to Bradshaw Primary School

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Bradshaw Primary School. We have been at the heart of our local community since 1966 and I hope that you will be able to spend some time finding out more about our wonderful small school. I have been in the privileged position of being the Headteacher since 2011 and over that time we have worked hard to become the best we can be and to develop relationships with our local community. 

Our school motto is ‘Proud of who we are and proud of what we achieve’, we celebrate the successes of our children and encourage them to take risks in a safe and warm environment. All the staff work hard to offer the children an interesting and varied curriculum, which links them to their own lived experiences but also opens the door to the wider world, allowing them to develop their own knowledge and understanding. Our children have opportunities to take on leadership roles, extra-curricular activities and a wide range of trips and residentials. Our unique Challenge Awards aim to celebrate the work the children do outside of the curriculum and at home. 

We joined Omega Multi-Academy Trust in April 2024 and see the next stage of our journey as an exciting one. The Trust aims to offer the best education for all children and to be the best employer for its staff. This ethos mirrors our own, and we feel that the opportunities for children and staff to develop their own skills and knowledge will be enhanced by being part of Omega Multi-Academy Trust.

One strength of our school is the experience and stability of our staff, many of whom have worked in the school for many years and have built up relationships with our families, some of them having taught two generations of the same family! These relationships are so important for a school to be able to provide the best for its children and we believe that the parents who send their children to Bradshaw quickly realise that we are a team, working together to ensure that everyone reaches their potential by the time they leave us.

We have an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) who offer a range of different fund-raising activities throughout the year and have helped to provide many resources for school that have been a real benefit to our children.

I hope that you find the information you need from our website, but if you want to find out more or would like to have a visit of the school, please contact the school office.

Thank you

Mr C Short
