Bearwood Primary and Nursery School is a GOOD School

We are delighted and proud that the wonderful work that is done in the school has been recognised by OFSTED. It is recognition of the hard work of children, parents, staff and governors working together to provide the best we can for our children.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

  • Leaders and managers are ambitious for the school resulting in improvements in pupils’ progress and in the quality of teaching.
  • Pupils learn well, including those supported with extra funding under an initiative known as the pupil premium. The proportion of pupils exceeding the levels expected for their age has improved, particularly in writing and mathematics.
  • Pupils’ progress is tracked well by teachers and senior leaders, which ensures that all groups of pupils, including those who are disabled or with special educational needs, achieve well.
  • Teaching and learning are good overall. The majority of lessons are engaging and promote pupils’ interest.
  • Pupils’ personal development is good. Pupils have positive attitudes to their learning and behave well in and around the school.
  • The governing body ensures pupils are safe at school and that safeguarding procedures meet statutory requirements.
