Bradfields Academy


Dear Parents & Carers,

Welcome back to Term 3. It has been a great start to the term as the children have settled back into their routines and are engaging in learning.

You may be aware there is a national special educational need funding crisis, this coupled with increasing numbers of children requiring places within Medway, is leaving the Academy seriously short of learning spaces and resources.

As you know, we are trying to address the learning space issues through the purchase of a double decker bus which we would like to transform into an exciting reading and library space for the children. We need to raise a total of £3500 to purchase the bus and completely refit it. To date we have raised £1,609.64 so there is just £1,890.36 to go!

We have been very grateful for the donations received to date, but need to continue working towards raising the full amount. We would be grateful if you, family members or friends could make a donation to help us. This donation could be made towards the bus via our Just Giving page which is or a cheque could be sent to the academy:

Bradfields Academy, Churchill Avenue, Chatham, Kent, ME5 0LB

We also lack the resources needed to make our Primary sensory room space a place in which the children can relax and feel calm and ready to learn. We are trying to raise £1000 to purchase a Sensory Touch interactive bubble tube. A donation towards this much needed resource can be made on our Primary Just Giving page which is:

We thank you in advance for your support.  Your donation is greatly appreciated and will make a real difference to all our children.

Yours sincerely,

Marie Sweetlove


P.S. We are also looking for local businesses that can sponsor key events or sponsor the production of our student planners. Please get in touch if you think you might be able to help or you know of a business that might be interested in supporting us.
