    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 we had a professional development day with a focus on excellent teaching and learning. Staff shared learning from their own recent Personal Development (PD), and led a range of seminars ranging from teenage brain development, parental perspectives on SEND, Godly play, peer influence to resilience in learning. 

    Mrs Hoskins led us in a devotion about love in Bradford Christian School. She encouraged us to consider how we are sacrificial, purposeful and intentional, whilst working with parents to achieve our vision and mission. We reflected on some short Bible passages, all focussed on how the Bible teaches us to love one another. 

    It is a privilege to work with a team of people who value relationships in school, and who want to show God’s love to your children.
