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 2019; 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 typically achieve well across the broad curriculum. Workbooks show that pupils deepen their understanding in a wide range of subjects. Current assessment information indicates that pupils in most groups make good progress across a range of subjects, including English and mathematics. It was also commented that he school is welcoming, inclusive and at the heart of the local community. Pupils are proud of their school, saying it is ‘awesome, fun and interesting’.

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.
