This school continues to be good.
Broughton Moor provides a caring and welcoming environment, where pupils’ individual needs are met. Pupils enjoy coming to school and wear their uniform with pride.
One pupil said, ‘The best things about our school are the teachers and our friends, we all look after each other.’
Pupils are now confident to take risks and learn from their mistakes.
The school is at the heart of the community. It is highly regarded by local parents and parents who live in neighbouring villages who chose the school because of its good reputation.
The outdoor environment in the early years has been transformed. It provides stimulating and exciting activities where children develop their language and number skills. As a result, children make good progress from their starting points and are thriving because of the excellent relationships established.
One parent was of the opinion that, ‘This school is well led by the headteacher, the quality of teaching is excellent and all the children are well behaved. It offers a very safe and caring environment, my children enjoy going to school.’
Pupils said there was no bullying at the school, but if it did happen they were confident that their teachers would ‘sort it out quickly’.
An inspection of the school took place on Wednesday 2nd July 2014. Please click above for the report. We all love our school. We are very proud of all our children and staff and that our family school was so highly regarded by Ofsted!

Thank you, for making our childs introduction to education a very positive and happy experience. I have never known a child so eager to get to school. Recently she picked up a stomach bug so we had to keep her off, she became so upset at being told that she couldn't attend, we had to tell her that school was closed for the day. Carry on the wonderful work. Many thanks.
Two happy parents and 1 very happy child
