Broadlands School provides vast areas of both natural and sun shade structures to protect the students from the sun’s harsh rays. During the summer months (all of Terms 1 & 2) we have a ‘NO hat, NO play’ policy.

Healthy eating and hygienic behaviours are strongly encouraged.

We are visited annually by the Life Education Trust and our friend Harold the giraffe which provides health education with relationships, the human body, healthy dietary habits and personal hygiene.

Our Virtues also support the forming and sustaining of positive relationships at multiple levels
