Jez Wong (Headteacher)
Broadwater is an outstanding school. It is led by an exemplary principal and an outstanding headteacher who provide exceptional leadership and have developed a strong team of senior leaders, governors and staff. All are committed to providing a first-class education for pupils, within a highly supportive, stimulating learning environment. As a result, pupils make excellent progress during their time in the school and achieve exceptionally well. The school’s strong Christian ethos ensures a very happy, caring community where pupils thrive both academically and personally. Parents and carers are extremely pleased with what the school provides and appreciate the dedication of all staff. These comments sum up the views of most parents and carers: ‘Broadwater is extremely well managed. It is the epitome of what a church school should be’ and ‘The school provides an excellent learning environment that enables children to flourish.’ However, perhaps the best comments come from the pupils themselves: ‘Teachers are amazing - they help you when you are stuck and make learning fun.’ Overall, pupils are lively, enthusiastic ambassadors for the school.
