I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of Bedgrove Junior School. I believe Primary school should be about curiosity into as many different areas of the curriculum as possible. At Bedgrove Junior, we pride ourselves on our amazing curriculum, brilliant teaching and the fantastic opportunities that we give our children. Bedgrove is a unique four form Junior School with 120+ pupils in each year group. The large year groups means we have great collaborations between teachers where they plan together to share best practice. We are also very proud to be part of the Great Learners Trust where we benefit from working collaboratively with a number of local schools. The staff at Bedgrove Junior regularly go to other Trust schools to help improve the teaching and learning of all pupils from around the GLT.
The children at Bedgrove Junior are amazing! They are polite, hardworking students who have fostered a love of learning and whose behaviour is exemplary through the high standards of expectations set of them. Our behaviour for learning policy allows our children to grow and self-regulate through encouraging them to take ownership of their behaviour. Through our behaviour rules of ‘Be ready, Be respectful, Be Safe,’ we promote children to be happy citizens of the school and the wider community.
Bedgrove Junior School was last formally inspected by OFSTED in June 2015. During this inspection the school was graded as a good school where; "Teachers successfully strive hard to challenge, engage and interest pupils in lessons. Pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is a strength. The school is an extremely caring place where pupils are kept safe and every pupils welfare matters greatly". (OFSTED June 2015).
We base our learning and experiences through our values of Inspire, Challenge and Succeed and through these values we provide the best possible education for the children at Bedgrove Junior.
An ongoing good relationship with all stakeholders is extremely important. We have an open door policy where the SLT will be on the gate at drop off and pick up and teachers will be at their doors to answer any questions you may have.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Harry Hillier, Headteacher
