Bedmond Academy OFSTED

In February 2022 OFSTED visited Bedmond Academy for an inspection. Last time the school was inspected was before the school was taken on by Aspire Academies Trust and they were judged to be inadequate at that time.

We're delighted to report that the school has now been judged as GOOD in every category. This is a huge achievement on the part of Miss Harris, Principal, her staff and governors, as well as the wider Aspire team.

The inspectors spoke about the outstanding journey the school has been on and the successful transformation which has taken place, reporting that the school is now solidly good. They praised the staff for the way in which the children are always central to everything that they do, and they acknowledged their hard work, commitment and drive. They also spoke about the children's pride and enthusiasm and how much they love their school.

Many congratulations to the staff at Bedmond, as well as to everyone involved in the school's journey, for this excellent result!
