Welcome from Bevendean Governors
A very warm welcome from all of the Governors at Bevendean to everyone in our school community - parents, pupils, staff, teachers, carers, prospective governors and neighbours.
From the start of the new academic year we have all been aware of how challenging this time has been and the new challenges we are all facing as individuals, families, a school and as a community. The staff, teachers, senior leadership team, the headteacher and governors are all working hard to ensure that Bevendean Primary School and Nursery continues to be a place where everyone can succeed and thrive.
Bevendean Primary School and Nursery is the heart of our community. It is a fantastic school with exceptional and committed staff. The School and Governors continue to work together with the common aim of providing a learning environment that is safe, inclusive and challenging to ensure children succeed and thrive now and in the future.
In December 2019 Ofsted continued to rate the school ‘Good’, which we are very proud of. Inspectors said:
“What is it like to attend this school?
This school is indeed ‘a place for everyone to succeed and thrive’. Pupils are happy, proud of their learning, confident that they are doing well and ambitious for their futures. Staff are a strong and supportive team who work hard to make sure that every pupil can achieve. One parent expressed the view of many when they said, ‘Each student is challenged to be the best possible version of themselves.’
Pupils are safe and cared for by all staff. School is a calm place because pupils respect the school rules. Pupils behave well, listen carefully in class and play cooperatively with friends at playtimes.
Staff encourage pupils to become well-rounded citizens. Pupils have many opportunities to take responsibility for themselves and others, for example as house captains. Pupils are proud to help. Pupils respect the feelings and values of others and learn about the wider world through assemblies, celebrations and in lessons.”
Congratulations to our headteacher Mr Giddens, the senior leadership team, all our teachers, learning mentors, support staff, premises staff, parents, carers and pupils for making Bevendean Primary School and Nursery such a success.
From all the Governors at Bevendean.
