The Bewbush Academy School is celebrating improving results, and the renovation of its Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) rooms.
A statement from the school said it has been going from strength to strength under new headteacher Christine Dickens and the strong Senior Leadership Team.
“Mrs Dickens joined the school in April 2017 and has been busy refurbishing all the classrooms and improving the school’s academic results,” it said. “The Year 6 SATS results are improving year on year and were in-line with the National average in 2018. The school also had an Ofsted inspection in November 2017 and was awarded a ‘Good’ rating, demonstrating strong, consistent teaching and learning, good provision for children’s well-being and welfare and clear leadership and management.”
The report called the school ‘a happy and friendly place where pupils get on well with others and develop good relationships with adults’.
The EYFS classes have now been completely renovated, turning one large open-planned space into three newly-furnished classrooms and a shared area.
“This new development has really helped the children settle more quickly into their new classes but given them space to spread when needed during free-flow time. It has provided a safe and secure learning space which fosters curiosity and exploration in different learning zones, helping children develop independence.
“Mrs Dickens has also been enhancing the outdoor space with a new outdoor learning area which complements the wider curriculum currently being developed that has a huge focus on well-being and outdoor learning.”
