Broughton Moor Primary School is a small village school, and everything we do must reflect this unique environment. From delivering academic opportunities which excite and enthuse, to providing your child with a range of extracurricular opportunities and life skills, which will help ensure that they are a well-rounded individual.  We hope your child will look back on their early school days as the starting point for their passion for discovery and the beginning of lifelong learning. Our values are the thread which runs through our school community and underpins our shared beliefs and behaviours that make up the culture of Broughton Moor Primary School.

  1. Courage
  2. Honesty
  3. Kindness
  4. Tolerance
  5. Respect

We embed our values through the curriculum, assemblies, extra-curricular activities, visits, visitors, communication with parents.

Our values incorporate, but go beyond, the Fundamental British Values of Democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
