Quick Stop Notices

IMPORTANT: Please log on to the BCS Parent Portal to read and accept the school’s Acceptable Use Policy and update your child’s Medical record for this year. Make sure you’re logging into version 1.172.

  • Behaviour Policy – Our behaviour policy is largely in place for events happening in school, and details can be found on the website. However, we have reviewed some practice recently in the light of online safety, and there are occasions where we may also use our policy for events happening outside of school. If we have evidence of harassment or bullying of any of our students by another student we will follow policy.

Bullying of any kind is unacceptable in our school. Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal or psychological. It can happen face-to-face or online.

“Bullying can take many forms for instance Cyber bullying via text messages, social media or gaming which can include the use of images and video and is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups for example on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, special educational needs or disabilities, or because a child is adopted, in care or has caring responsibilities. It might be motivated by actual differences between children or perceived differences.” (Preventing and Tackling Bullying– advice for headteachers, staff and governing bodies July 2017)

  • A reminder about Uniform: Please make sure you send your child to school in the correct clothing each day. Also, if you have any second hand uniform to donate, please hand in at the Main Office, thank you.
  • A helpful article for parents navigating teen social media use.

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.

Easter was a great rest for most of our staff, after a lovely celebration led by Stephen White in our last assembly of term. He spoke about the Resurrection, after a week where students led us each day. It was a busy term, with lots going on, but it was good to be reminded of hope and forgiveness of sin. Without Easter, Bradford Christian School would not exist.

Those of you who know me well are probably bored hearing me talk about my family, but it is always a highlight when the young adult children come home. I love being in the same house with them, although they love to remind us of our parenting skills and deficits! I love hearing what they are up to, their hopes and dreams, their fears and worries.

This Easter brought home the message of how we, as sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father, bring him joy when we spend time with him. Like me with Eden and Alfie, he loves to hear about my hopes and dreams, fears and worries.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: And all those who are sons and daughters of God have the blessed hope of seeing Jesus and being like Him when he shall appear to take his children to a new heavenly home.

Thank you for your support of Bradford Christian School
