Bader Primary parents and carers are the very best, bar none! So many messages of thanks and thoughtful comments around growth and progress of individual children, this year. Our school community thrives on the support of all its members, and we are immensely proud of that. Today, our school is saying farewell to some. But, once a member of the Bader school community, always a member. We know you will come back to see us. I never cease to be amazed by the number of ex-Bader pupils who flood in, given a PD Day at any of our local secondary schools. A testament, I would like to think, to the special community spirit that exists here, engendered by each and every one of us.

And as for the cakes… you’d have to travel far to do better…


Thank you Shelby’s (Y5) dad!!


A fond farewell to a much loved and respected teacher, Mr Sherrington!

After our Year 6 Leavers ceremony on Monday, this morning saw another very special event at Bader. Some of our morning Nursery children (N2s) move up to Reception in September. Parents and other family members attended a graduation ceremony that, we hope, will be the first of many for our young learners. Our afternoon N2s will enjoy the same event this afternoon. We are also looking forward to receiving the first of our 2-Year-Olds to their new base in school, this September.

After winning through to represent their school in the Thornaby Spelling Bee Contest 2015, teams of four pupils from Bader, Harewood and Thornaby C of E, met today at Thornaby Academy and pitted themselves against one another in a titanic struggle! An immaculately well behaved, supportive audience observed in awed silence as the two last contestants slugged it out. Finally, the tie break word: onomatopoeia. And we had a winner! Bader’s very own Thornaby Spelling Bee Champion of 2015: Ciaran! Again, silence as team scores were totted up. The winning team: Bader Primary School! I took great pride in the Bader Team winning, of course, but also hold absolute respect and admiration for all the young competitors. Not an easy word among them, some really tricky ones, and some absolute corkers!! Thank you Harewood, Thornaby C of E and Thornaby Academy. Well done Ciaran, Mackenzie, Jake and Michael!!
