Welcome to Broomfield
Welcome to our school. We are an all-age generic special school serving South Leeds. We cater for a wide range of learning needs from moderate learning difficulties; severe learning difficulties; complex and multiple learning needs to Asperger’s and Autism. Some students have additional needs – physical; medical; speech and language; visual, hearing or sensory impairment.
Many pupils are based on our main Broomfield site and in addition some within our mainstream partnership sites - Windmill Music Federation and Rodillian Academy, where opportunities for mainstream inclusion are maximised, if appropriate.
Our motto is ‘Investing in Individuals, Transforming Lives’ reflected in our aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating school environment in which all pupils are encouraged to adopt a healthy lifestyle and feel happy, safe and secure. Our pupils demonstrate a strong sense of community and fairness for all. We endeavour to help our pupils take their place in society and be tolerant, understanding and respectful of the rights of others.
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as Head of School. I joined Broomfield in January and it has been a privilege getting to know the students, staff and school community. I feel excited and proud to undertake this role and I am passionate about working with young people who have additional needs and enabling them to fulfil their potential. I believe that learning should be creative, exciting and personalised and should develop positive relationships and a climate of respect.
Broomfield is a vibrant happy and successful school where the needs of our learners are paramount. I am committed to building on the many strengths of our school and to making it an even better place for your children to learn.
I hope that we will have a positive future working together to ensure all children have positive learning experiences and are prepared for adult life.
Head of School
Having joined the school in September 2018, I am an experienced special school Principal in Leeds, and I am delighted to be steering Broomfield in the next chapter of its journey to continued success.
