Parents’ Group

Broadfield Parents’ 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.

For further information please contact Joyce O’Grady on 01254 381782
