About Us

Welcome to Broke Hall Community Primary School

We are a large, friendly school of over 600 pupils and 80 staff.  Our school is situated in a pleasant residential area on the eastern edge of Ipswich.

The school comprises of 21 classrooms and a nursery brimming with learning, a nurture room, large library, group-work rooms and shared areas in constant use by Learning Support Assistants and volunteers.  The school hall is used for assemblies, lunches and PE sessions.  Outside we have a large playground that wraps around the school, a basketball court and a large school field which are a buzz of activity at playtimes, lunchtimes and during PE lessons. 

We strive to provide an environment which enables children to achieve high academic standards, develop an understanding of themselves and others; and to care about the world and their country in which they live.

The staff are committed to delivering the highest standards of teaching and learning whilst maintaining a strong inclusive ethos.  Children are valued as individuals and encouraged to participate in a range of activities enabling them to develop skills and attitudes, which help to equip them for life.

Transition for all stages, whether from Reception to Year 1, Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 or from Year 6 to high school are carefully planned.  We maintain close contact with other local schools and aim to make the transition to High School as seamless as possible.

As a school, we place a high value on establishing close links between home and school so that we can effectively work together to achieve the best for each child.

Values

At Broke Hall Primary School, the children lie at the heart of the decisions we make.

Our school is full of learning, respect, and friendship; where our vision is that all children are prepared for life by becoming;

  • Curious, independent learners who demonstrate skills, knowledge and understanding in their learning and who relish challenge
  • Sympathetic friends who enjoy learning and playing together
  • Thoughtful, inclusive, respectful people who care about the world, their country and who develop strong personal values

To fulfil our vision we will:

  • provide high quality teaching, which inspires a love of learning
  • challenge children by creating an environment and curriculum which excites/motivates/inspires children as learners
  • encourage growth mindset and a ‘have a go culture’, where children learn from their mistakes
  • teach our children to develop a sense of personal worth, self-discipline and an understanding of socially acceptable behaviour
  • value each child as an individual, with unique range of talents, interests, learning styles and needs
  • provide opportunities to develop an understanding and respect of British Values
  • involve parents as essential valued partners in the life of the school
  • appreciate and professionally develop a dedicated team of staff and governors; striving as educators to continually improve our own practice
