Welcome to Bracken Leas Primary School.

Welcome to Bracken Leas Primary school. We cater for 400 children between the ages of 4 and 11 years old and aim to provide a happy and safe environment in which all children are encouraged and challenged. Our ethos of Achieve, Believe, Learn and Enjoy links to everything we do.

We have the highest expectations for all our pupils to have ambition in all they do and to work hard to achieve their goals. We strongly believe that learning should be fun and aim to provide a rich and creative curriculum for the children to enjoy.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and we welcome visits to our school. Come and see us in action- our children are our greatest ambassadors and would love to show you their school. I am always available to talk to any prospective or current parent, so if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy looking around our website and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Mrs Paula Harwood – Head Teacher

“I like that the teachers help and make me feel safe and that I have lots of friends. I have been here for seven years now and I have not had many problems. If I have, the children and teachers help.”

“For Early Years I feel that the children are well looked after and gently encouraged to find their own potential and confidence.”

“I’m really impressed with the change in the school already. The quality of teaching has always been high but my children are more motivated than ever and love the new ways in which they are taught. When I asked them for feedback to pass on they both said they love school and that they are very happy. Thank you!”

“My child’s teacher is always there if I need to raise any concerns. She supports my child well.”
