Welcome to Broad Hinton C of E Primary!

It is my pleasure to welcome you into our very special school. As your child’s first educators, you have had such a great influence on them so far in their lives and we, at Broad Hinton Primary School, endeavour to continue this work developing your child’s full potential, guided by our Christian values:


Starting school is one of the most important events in your child’s life, be it as a ‘rising five’ or after a family move. At Broad Hinton Primary School new children settle quickly in our caring community, enabling them to develop academically, spiritually, creatively, socially, morally and culturally.

As parents you are always welcome into our school and as we operate an ‘open door’ policy, we encourage you, in partnership, to support your child, celebrate their achievements and also discuss with us any concerns you may have. The staff here believe every child needs to feel happy and safe in their learning environment, able to succeed in all they do alongside developing the Christian ethos that weaves its way throughout all that we do.

The school has good and effective links with the local church and has been part of the community for more than 260 years. We have a strong Christian ethos and pride ourselves on the care, support and guidance we provide for both pupils and parents.

We look forward to working in close partnership with you and your child in the years ahead.

Yours sincerely

Mrs E Floyd

Coming Events


Ofsted Report, November 2022

  • “Pupils enjoy attending this inclusive school. They talk confidently about the school’s values. They understand how these values help them to be loving, caring and supportive of others. Parents and carers are positive about the school. Many comment on the school’s ‘family feel’ and the way in which staff care for pupils.”
  • “Staff have high expectations for pupils’ behaviour and conduct. Pupils understand these expectations and strive to achieve them. Pupils are polite and behave well, both in lessons and around the school. This begins in the early years, where children follow instructions well and show high levels of independence.”
  • “Leaders have high expectations for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Together with staff, they have created a curriculum that is ambitious and designed well.  Leaders promote a love of reading. Staff ensure that pupils read a diverse range of texts. Staff use the training they receive to enable them to teach phonics well.”
  • “Leaders are ambitious for what pupils with SEND can achieve. These pupils take an active role in the life of the school. Staff know the pupils well. They use this knowledge to ensure that pupils receive the support they need to access the same curriculum as their peers. This is particularly the case for pupils with social and emotional needs.”

SIAMS Church Inspection, March 2017

  • “Very strong Christian values are intrinsic to the life of the school and exert a strong positive influence on the pupils’ development and well-being.”
  • “The contribution of the rector in providing spiritual and pastoral care to the school is outstanding”
  • “The headteacher and governors are fully committed to sustaining and developing the Christian foundation and distinctiveness of the school which has improved since the previous inspection.”


  • “Broad Hinton Primary School, is without doubt, the best primary school I have been involved with.  I have many years of teaching experience in a wide range of schools, both private and state and this school, to my mind, is outstanding.  The Head and staff really are remarkable, kind, thoughtful and approachable.  Discipline is super, as is motivation of pupils.  I have 2 children with ASD and I couldn’t be more grateful and thankful.  My youngest will definitely be coming here and I would, and do, recommend to anyone.  Thank you.”
