Ridgeway School Ofsted Results

Ridgeway School is Outstanding

Ofsted carried out an inspection on Ridgeway School, in Kempston, and reported it to be good in 3 categories, and outstanding in 1.

The inspection was carried out over 7 - 8th November. Ofsted reported that: The quality of teaching is good. The behaviour and safety of pupils is outstanding. The leadership and management is good. The achievement of pupils is good.

Ofsted noted that ‘pupils make good and sometimes exceptional progress at the school’.

Further findings were that ‘there are excellent relationships between staff and pupils and successes are richly celebrated’ and ’information and communication technology is used creatively to help pupils with physical difficulties express themselves and make choices’. Ofsted went on to highlight that 'as a result of good monitoring by senior staff, the majority of teaching is good with examples of outstanding practice, and brings about good achievement for all.’

Cllr David Sawyer, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Ridgeway School has achieved this success at a time when Ofsted have introduced a more rigorous framework. I am enormously proud of our schools’ recent achievements across the borough overall. This year’s Ofsted Annual Report has ranked Bedford Borough at 11th out of 152 local authorities across the country.”

Mr Graham Allard, Head teacher at Ridgeway School, said: “I am very pleased with the outcome of the inspection. This is a well deserved endorsement of our school's achievements and progress over the past 3 years and is thanks to the hard work and dedication of everyone associated with Ridgeway.”
