In primary school we build upon a solid EYFS foundation, continuing to partner with parents on the journey to educate their child
We do value academic progress and want each child to fulfill their potential, but before this can happen we want children to like themselves, knowing that they are precious and valued in God's eyes and our eyes. We encourage them to develop self respect, and positive relationships with others including peers and staff. This is reinforced daily through our interactions with children, through conversations with parents, and through assemblies when we celebrate character and success.
The national curriculum is taught with a faith integrated focus, reinforcing the fact that children are special in God's eyes. The small class sizes allow for individualised learning and our teachers bring a wealth of experience from the UK and beyond. Many of our children make more than expected national progress in core subjects each year. Classes have extra support for Maths and English learning each morning.
We value physical development and employ a specialist PE teacher to teach our children. She is creative and skilled, and is able to help children progress in this area. We also invite visiting coaches into school, recently we have had a coach from Heaton Tennis Club, and a team from Bradford City Football Club to work with our children.
Children are able to access interventions when needed, currently in speech and language, talk for learning groups, multi sensory phonics groups and Numicon Maths. These interventions are delivered by specially trained Learning Support Assistants who can tailor make individual packages of support
Assemblies are special times in our community where we worship God, celebrate academic success as well as character development. Children love assemblies in school.
Bradford Christian School exists to partner parents in seeking to bring their children up in the ways of the Lord. We are an independent Christian school with a curriculum that focuses on the Bible and Jesus Christ in the lives of children and young people.
Students are encouraged to discover their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to maintain this in their futures.
