Ofsted: New Bewerley is a Good school

New Bewerley Community School in Beeston is celebrating after having been found to be ‘Good’ across the board in their latest Ofsted inspection.

Amongst their findings, Inspectors reported that:

“From their low starting points in Reception, most pupils make strong progress by the time they reach the end of Year 6.

“Pupils are given a wide range of opportunities to use and apply their English and mathematical skills and knowledge effectively across the curriculum.

“Leaders use additional funding well to make a positive difference to pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and to those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities.

“The school provides a very broad curriculum. Pupils enjoy a wide range of exciting activities, which motivate them to learn. Consequently, their attitudes to learning are good.”

Headteacher Gary German said:

“I am delighted with the report. I feel it captures New Bewerley perfectly. New Bewerley has a really committed team of teachers and staff and we are extremely lucky to work with incredible children and supportive families.

“In September 2017 we created the motto ‘Include, Create, Perform’ to celebrate school’s rich diversity, enhanced curriculum, links with Opera North & the West Yorkshire Playhouse and school’s consistently good performance compared to national data. This is acknowledged throughout the report and we are thrilled.”

Ofsted inspectors grade a range of issues in school including outcomes for pupils; quality of teaching, learning and assessment; leadership and management, governors; and welfare and behaviour. The four grades are Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate. New Bewerley was rated Good in all areas.
