Headteacher's Welcome
Bevendean Primary School and Nursery really is a fantastic school, and I am really proud to be Headteacher at this great school!

We have an exceptional staff team of 16 class teachers, Nursery to Year 6; including a facility for deaf children.  Our Nursery offers 15 hours free nursery provision each week. We have three learning mentors, 22 teaching assistants and higher level teaching assistants supporting in class along with a further 10 office / administration and facilities staff.

The sense of care and commitment to our children is evident throughout the school and you can be sure that your child will be known as an individual and very well cared for (Pupils are safe and cared for by all staff - Ofsted, December, 2019).  We take great pride in knowing our children well! All our staff value friendliness, team-work, and support as some of their core values, and this shows through when you visit our school.

Our aim is to provide exciting and high quality teaching and learning which challenges and motivates children to really become involved in their learning (Teachers plan ambitions and interesting lessons for all pupils; pupils remember what they have learned; misconception are picked up very swiftly and help is promptly given; challenge is given to all pupils - Ofsted, December, 2019).
