Ofsted and Standards
Ofsted – the Office for Standards in Education – is the inspectorate for children and learners in England. It is their job to contribute to the provision of better education and care through effective inspection and regulation. Our school was most recently inspected in June 2015; the report on their findings can be found by using the link below.
Staff, governors, pupils and parents were delighted with the findings of the Ofsted inspector and we feel that this report truly reflects the position of the school at the present time. The key finding of this report is that our school is a good school. This is a particularly pleasing achievement in a year when Ofsted have raised the standard required to be regarded as good. The inspector found that ‘ Pupils achieve well. They make good progress from their starting points and standards in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of both key stages are rising.’ She also noted that ‘The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils are charming and show extremely good manners. They play together harmoniously irrespective of age, gender or ethnic background.’
The two action points identified by our inspector have been incorporated into our current School Development Plan.

The Headteacher, staff and governors at Badgemore are committed to making our school an excellent and inspiring place in which children can enjoy learning and achieve their potential, whatever that may be. We recognise that there is work to do to achieve this and are always grateful for the support we receive from our parents, carers and the local community.
