Hat-trick of success at Beedon CE School


BEEDON CE Primary School in Berkshire has been praised by Nick Gibb, the Government Minister for School Standards after being placed in the top two per cent of schools in England for attainment in maths.

Mr Gibb said: “I would like to congratulate you for the very high standard that pupils in your school have achieved in the 2016 Key Stage 2 assessments. Your school results show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the expected school standard in mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

The praise follows an OFSTED report in November. Inspectors praised the school’s improving systems and processes. It also follows a SIAMS inspection in January, when an inspector stated: “As a result of the Christian character of the school the behaviour and attendance of learners is good and they achieve well and make good progress.”

Chris Prosser, the Executive Headteacher, said: “These accolades are well deserved and reflect the hard work and dedication of staff, students and parents. Athough it is a small rural school it has a unique character and a big heart.”
