A Good School!

A Good School

As you will remember, Ofsted paid us a visit on 18th/19th June and judged our school to be a good school.  The governors and I are delighted with this judgement and with the subsequent report into our inspector’s findings and we feel that it is well-deserved recognition of the hard work and commitment shown by staff, children, parents and governors over the last 14 months.   Our success at this inspection was truly a team effort!

You can read a copy of our inspection report here Published Report July 2015 and it will be published on the Ofsted website within the next few days.

Staff and children at Badgemore will not be resting on our laurels on the back of this success – we have two points for development, which will be implemented in September, and we will continue our learning journey, demonstrating our commitment to raised expectations and higher standards for all of our children.  Badgemore children have already shown that they are more than ready for this – our inspector found that … ‘A number of pupils in each class show outstanding behaviour for learning through their exemplary attitudes and exceptionally high levels of engagement…’ This is a fabulous achievement in such a short space of time and we are confident that all of our children have the potential to be outstanding; we therefore owe it to them to ensure that they achieve their potential and will be striving for an Outstanding judgement at our next inspection.

Anyone who is interested in finding out more about our school is welcome to visit; please make an appointment through the school office.
