    Upper School Christmas Lunch

    Mrs Trice-Parkin and Mrs Trice cooked both Upper school and the Staff a wonderful Christmas lunch on Wednesday. They all had a super time and the food was fantastic! Thank you ladies!


    Primary Big Arts Day!

    On Tuesday EYFS and Primary spent time together creating some scenes from the Nativity story to decorate the hall for our upcoming show 'I'm gonna shine'. The children enjoyed working together across year groups and created some fantastic art. Make sure you have a look at the display boards when you come and see the show to see what they created.

    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 term we have spent increasing amounts of staff time sorting out student issues with social media, usually happening at home.

    Whilst the students may be part of our school, and are therefore our concern, we have no jurisdiction over their use of social media. This is really a parent responsibility. We can monitor use of school accounts, and are happy to work with you as parents, but we are not involved in monitoring their behaviour on Whatsapp, Snapchat, or other platforms. We teach them about online safety but the daily practice is beyond our control.

    There is a reason for age limits on social media, and currently this is 16 for Whatsapp, 13 for Instagram, 13 for Snapchat, 13 for Facebook.

    Although WhatsApp has an age restriction of 16+, it is becoming an increasingly popular messaging app amongst younger children. Depending on your child’s privacy settings, anyone can contact them or add them to group chats. Recently, WhatsApp have introduced new features which will ensure that the most appropriate settings are applied to the application for your child, to protect their safety.

    If your child has a phone with internet access please make sure you have protective factors in place to help them navigate their use in a healthy way. The virtual world can be great, but requires maturity to navigate. Some children are ready for it, others need guidance and support.

    Thank you for your continued support of Bradford Christian School

    Have a Blessed Weekend!
