National Apprenticeship Week 2021

National Apprenticeship Week takes place from 8 – 14 February 2021.

An apprenticeship is a real job where students can learn, gain experience and get paid. They become an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. National Apprenticeship Week aims to provide information to future apprentices and link them to employers, giving the insights they need to make well-informed decisions.

Here are some useful links to help find out more:

Bradon Forest supports Greenmeadow Primary School’s new lending library

We were delighted to assist Greenmeadow Primary School, one of our feeder schools, with a donation of a number of books for their new lending library today.

Mrs Styles, Bradon Forest’s librarian, has been using this quieter period in school to having a thorough stocktake. Mrs Styles said, “We are very lucky at Bradon Forest to have received a large number of books from families and staff as their children have grown up over the years that I have been working here. We had such a large collection of books it was becoming difficult for the students to find what they were looking for. I have used this lockdown period to have a comprehensive review of all the books we have in the library.”

Mrs Styles was altered to the plea from Greenmeadow for books for their new lending library by another member of Bradon Forest staff.  Mrs Mackinnon and Mrs McDonald, the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, from Greenmeadow visited our library this evening and selected books that would be suitable for primary age children.



Virtual Music Christmas Concert – 17/12/2020

Please take the time to sit back with a mince pie and a drink and enjoy our Virtual Music Christmas Concert.The concerts are always the best way to finish a busy term. Here’s hoping we get to do them in person for 2021! Thank you so much to our talented performers for submitting their choice of festive (or not!) piece of music. Merry Christmas!

Please note, in the playlist linked, we have the original version of all the edited videos. Youtube then decided to partially block some of the content due to copyright, so we have uploaded a version 2 without the drum pieces – but uploaded these as separate videos for you to watch. And please do!
