Monday 11th July

Thanks for opening The Week Ahead! Please encourage other parents to read our weekly newsletter.

The Week Ahead feedback

We have found it really helpful getting news and information about what is coming up. It’s really helpful to have those reminders and links. We have also loved hearing about what has been happening from the week before and seeing pictures of different classes and what they’ve been doing. It makes us feel more connected and get an insight into the life of the school.

It’s nice to see what is going on in school as a whole.

It’s a good way of keeping up with what’s going on and lovely to see our children’s names for star of the week.

I Love the colourful layout, adore the vast content, can be read through systematically or meandered through at leisure. I always feel well informed.

I find it an excellent place for the vast majority of the information needed and having it electronically means I can always access it from my smartphone.

It's really good to hear about all the achievements from the children within school.

I love the week ahead and look forward to reading it.

Headteacher's Message

Our mission: To provide a holistic Christian education for all and to inspire discipleship.

Our vision: To be a Christian community in which everyone grows in character, faith, knowledge, understanding and wisdom.

This week I was invited to watch year 4 mark the end of primary and their move to middle school. They confidently performed for their parents, and as usual, Mrs Garcia was able to describe their individual gifts and character.  I am always amazed how well Mrs Garcia knows and develops the children. Faith awards were given to each child - highlighting their character strengths and encouraging them to grow in these areas. 


On Thursday we will have a whole school celebration evening where we will also present awards for academic success, as well as three whole school character awards. Each phase of school will have a chance to present some learning from their year. The service will last about an hour and a half, and we will serve cakes and cold drinks. This will take place at St. Cuthbert's Church in Wrose, thanks to Rev Chris Baxfield, one of our primary dads. 


In the last week of term we will be having a lot of fun. There are several events planned to develop character and to celebrate a year in school - something we no longer take for granted. You should all have received information about the events of the week. 


Don't forget, we finish at 12pm on Friday 22nd July

Seeing Mrs Walker is a really good chance to be able to let something off of your chest, it makes the week feel less daunting and is an amazing release. It helps you realise all of the positive things going on in your life and feels really supportive.

I like our sessions i look forward to them each week they have helped a lot

Thank you for your support of Bradford Christian School

Have a blessed weekend!
