We have listened to feedback from our parent community over recent months and taken this on board to make changes to the way in which parents purchase school uniform for pupils.
As you are all aware Broadford is a school that has grown considerably over the past 5 years, from approximately 320 pupils to 542 at present.  Your feedback and the increased orders has lead us to change the supplier and we now have arrangements in place with a local company to look after all of your requirements. I am sure you will agree with us that this will meet your needs more effectively. The new supplier, Premier Schoolwear, have changing room facilities, situated close to the school, ample parking space and will always be open during holiday times and on a Saturday.
We will be arranging a voucher system for those families who are eligible for yearly free school uniform.  Please contact the school office for details.
If you have any further questions please feel free to ask at the office and we shall be more than happy to clarify.

Congratulations to Mulberry  and Ash who had the highest attendance % for week 2.1.17 to 6.1.17. The overall attendance figure is disappointing to see this week. Extra effort from us all will see that percentage rise next week to ensure that we reach the target of 96% and above.
