Our vision and ethos

As part of the ASPIRE Federation we aim to be an outstanding school at the heart of our culturally diverse communities, striving for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum in line with each of the individual schools’ values and beliefs.

Vision

At Leeds & Broomfield we build strong foundations for all; to learn, flourish and fill their hearts with God’s love. Everyone is important, valued and needed to make L&B grow. We give a quality all round nurturing education which develops the whole child; If the rain came we would not fall.

As many hands build a house, so many hearts make a school.”

(Matthew Ch 7 24-27)

Respect      Resilience    Empathy    Curiosity   Honesty

Nurture – ‘It is about learning – breaking down barriers’.


Nurture Principles

  • Children’s learning is understood developmentally.  ‘Strong foundations for all, flourish’.

  • The classroom offers a safe base.  ‘Everyone important, valued, ‘God’s love’

  • The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing. ‘Nurturing education’

  • Language is a vital means of communication. ‘Develop whole child

  • All behaviour is communication. ‘Develop whole child’

  • The importance of transition in children’s lives. ‘Whole child – not fall down’


We have explored the story of Matthew (Ch 7 24-27) showing curiosity, and the children felt empathy for the builder of the house on the sand, but said they must be resilient to try again. Jesus was honest with his followers and people followed and trusted him.  The story continues showing how Jesus respected all and everyone who wanted to listen and learn could – no one was turned away. This high level of inclusion and respect is what makes Leeds and Broomfield a great school community to be part of 

‘many hearts make a school’.


Our Mission statement

As part of the ASPIRE Federation, we will nurture curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do.

Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in environments where pastoral care is excellent.

Everyone is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring citizens in modern Britain.
