Dear parents / carers,
Due to rain forecast over the next two days, our Year 1 – 3 and Year 4 – 6 Sports Days will postponed until further notice. These will hopefully be rescheduled for early July. Thank you.
CAR PARKING - ANOTHER REMINDER
Please ensure that the car park is only accessed by the following vehicles:
- Staff cars
- Cars that display blue disabled badges
- Taxis dropping off and picking up children
- Delivery drivers
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY OTHER CAR USE THE CAR PARK, there is plenty of on-road parking around the school.
There have been a couple of instances recently where cars displaying blue badges have not been able to park in the designated bays as they have been occupied by other cars.
Bevendean Primary School really is a fantastic school, and I am really proud to be Headteacher! 93% of our parents agree / strongly agree that they would recommend Bevendean Primary School to others!
We have an exceptional staff team of 17 class teachers, including a Nursery.
Our Nursery offers 15 hours free nursery provision each week. We have teaching assistants and individual needs assistants supporting children across all key stages along with three full time learning mentors, 14 teaching assistants / higher level teaching assistants / individual needs assistants, and a further 9 office, administration and site staff.
The sense of care and commitment to our children is palpable throughout the school and you can be sure that your child will be known as an individual and very well cared for. 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 programmes of study which challenge and motivate children to really become involved in their learning. We want to inspire them to have great aspirations for their future, to be successful learners and confident individuals. We develop quality ‘tools for learning’ and integrate these into our lessons; these are: Imagination; Taking Risks; Motivation; Concentration; Resilience; Making Connections; Keep Improving; Cooperation; Curiosity and Perseverance.
Our focus is to ensure that children who require additional support receive support through our daily INTERVENTIONS, either from 8.30am – 8.55am Monday – Thursday, or our regular interventions offered throughout the school day. 96% of our parents say that their children make progress in their learning; and, 91% say that their children receive additional support with their learning if needed.
We encourage children to take responsibility for their own behaviour and to work with us to push themselves to make positive choices on a daily basis.
We believe we are successful because our children make good progress and 98% (the highest in Brighton & Hove) say they enjoy learning. We believe that children should have a well-resourced, well looked after school in which to learn and we have made a significant financial commitment to making sure this is the case. The school environment, inside and out, is vibrant and reflects the high standards that we want for our children who are polite, well behaved and full of pride in their school.
We are very proud of Bevendean Primary School and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
