Support for Schools

Children in ClassroomSchools are self-managing and autonomous, responsible for their own performance and improvement.
The role of the Bedford Borough Local Authority is to support this and if necessary intervene, should provision and quality for children and young people be compromised. 
Under the new Government expectation, schools deemed good or outstanding by OfSTED will have minimal involvement from the LA, except for the implementation of the LA’s statutory responsibilities.

Evidence shows clearly that educational achievement is the most effective way to improve outcomes and break cycles of deprivation. Improving life chances for all is therefore the key driver for our work, and there is a crucial role for everyone in shifting the focus from dealing with the consequences of difficulties in children’s lives to early intervention, safeguarding them in the first place.

To the same end, Bedford Borough will continue to promote partnerships, in the belief that they provide a rich combination of high expectations, innovative thinking and a strong community within which all learners can thrive and achieve. 

We strive to improve outcomes for all pupils and in particular the vulnerable, special education needs and disabled learners and we are actively participating in the Achievement for All programme in our schools to this end.

For more information on partnership working please contact: Colin Foster, Assistant Director, Chief Education Officer. Tel 01234 228311; e-mail: colin.foster@bedford.gov.uk
