Broadfield Parent’s Group is made up of parents, carers, friends and staff. We meet regularly throughout the year to discuss issues relating to school and families.
We have regular guest visitors who attend our meetings to talk to parents such as the Fire Brigade and Health Service Professionals.
Parents also have the opportunity to take part in workshops which are held throughout the year as well as joining trips out of school.
Everyone is welcome so please feel free to come along for a coffee and a chat.

The school Choir took part in the Burnley Music Festival on Friday 10th March. They sang Adiemus by Karl Jenkins. The piece was challenging because it is not in English but the Choir had spent lots of sessions learning the music and they were more then ready for the performance! They were competing against another school in the competition but our choir came in first place with a score of 88 which is classed as a ‘Distinction’. The choir received a trophy and a certificate. Well done to Mrs. Mills, our Music Teacher, and all the students. The choir will be competing
