The Week Ahead feedback

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Celebration evening

Thanks to all who showed up, and congratulations to those who received awards. Thanks to all who cheered them on - the atmosphere was really special.

 A heartfelt thanks to Rev Chris Baxfield for lending us his church as a great venue.

Our past three celebrations have moved around churches represented in school - if your church could host us next year we would love to hear from you.

For those of those not there I repeat the last part of my message:

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. Romans 4:6

Towards the end of the year I want to thank the body of BCS - children, staff, parents, governing body - God has given strengths and gifts to us all and  wants us to use them in positive ways.

Thanks to our students who make school a great place to be, who make sure that every day is different for staff and we don’t get bored. They teach us so much and who help us grow.

Thanks and for families for trusting us with your children. Thanks for making financial sacrifices so school can operate

Thanks to the staff for working together, each offering strengths and talents, and complementing each other in skill sets. Thanks or being willing, for saying yes more than saying no, for seeing things that could be better and making them happen. Thanks for following God’s calling

Thanks to governing body - volunteer so much time to support me, hold me accountable

Last of all, thanks to God, the author and perfector of our faith, for a school environment where God can be glorified

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!
