'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'
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 alongisde 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.
