BAPA Ofsted Inspection
We are delighted to announce, that following an inspection by OFSTED in April 2023, we have been awarded the highest possible rating of `Outstanding` in all areas.
Below are just some of the wonderful things that the OFSTED inspection team said about BAPA:
Leaders are aspirational for what pupils can achieve during their time at the school.
Highly skilled staff have created a place where pupils feel safe and valued as individuals. Staff quickly get to know pupils so that the curriculum they receive is suitably ambitious.
Pupils value and respond positively to the high expectations set. This is seen in the quality of their work, their knowledgeable contributions to lessons, their attendance and their behaviour.
Staff seamlessly balance kindness, respect, humour, routines and boundaries.
Pupils are very positive about the difference the staff here make for them.
Pupils rapidly broaden their knowledge during their time here.
Nearly all older pupils gain the qualifications they need and go on to future education and employment.
Pupils of all ages leave the provision much better equipped for the world ahead.
Schools should show the compulsory times they are open. This time runs from the official start (8.45pm) of the school day (morning registration) to the official end (2.30pm) of the compulsory school day. It includes breaks, but not optional before or after school activities… Click to view more
