My name is Mrs Baggaley, and I am delighted to have taken on the role of Principal at Broadfield Academy. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children and parents over the next few weeks and months. There has been a really positive vibe around the school and the children have shown me good manners, positive behaviour choices and most importantly, smiling faces, which has been the best welcome.

I have also brought Rusty along with me. He is a 2-year-old Cockapoo who has completed behaviour training to work with children in school. Our hope is that he will do Reading with Rusty and pastoral intervention sessions with Mrs Stone once he has settled.
