Bedfont Primary is a good school!
I feel very proud to write this following our recent Ofsted inspection. Here are just two quotes from the report:
"The school has improved since the previous inspection. The quality of teaching, leadership and pupils' achievement is now good."
"Leaders and managers have tackled areas of school's performance needing improvement with vigour."
We have come a long way since the amalgamation in 2010 and I am sure you will join me in thanking all the staff and governors for their hard work. And of course I must thank all the parents and carers for your support. There is a link to the full report below and I hope everyone will read it.
A list of dates for the Spring Term has been sent home and the calendar has been updated. Please remember to book in your appointment for Parents' Evening (see below). We are aiming for a 100% turn out.

We will be using the School Comms online booking system again for our parents’ evenings on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th February (Nightingale class will be on Thursday 12th instead of Tuesday). The bookings will open on Thursday 29th January at 7 am.
Please be aware that staff are not able to see parents on other days due to a large number of after school commitments, so it is vital that all parents make appointments for the allocated days.
If you have registered your details with Schoolcomms and wish to book your parents evening appointment online please log on to bedfont.parentseveningsystem.co.uk.
If you have not registered, you will need to:
Download the Schoolgateway app. This will allow you to reply and send texts to school for free. You will need to register for a School Gateway account from www.schoolgateway.com.

When you have entered your e-mail address and mobile number, select the Send Pin button and a PIN number will be sent to your mobile phone.

Update from Julian at Small Earth
"Following the completion of the plastering we are preparing the floor inside the dome for laying the grass. We've also now taken delivery of all the sandstone for the amphitheatre step risers and have got three more tiers to go - the amphitheatre floor and steps will then be ready for grass too. If the weather stays good I anticipate completion of the rest of the grass and landscaping on or around the 12th February when you should be able to have your playground back.".
