School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The number of pupils on roll has risen since the previous inspection. The school is now larger than most other primary schools.

Most pupils are White British with a small proportion from other heritages. The vast majority of pupils speak English as their home language. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is above average. An above-average proportion of pupils are supported at school action plus or have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through pupil premium funding, including those known to be eligible for free school meals, is at least double the national average. (The pupil premium is additional funding provided for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children who are looked after by the local authority.) A higher than average proportion of pupils joins the school at other than the normal time. The local authority provides additional resources for an eight-place unit in Key Stage 1 for pupils with a number of learning needs. Since the last inspection, the local authority has provided further additional resources for a 10-place unit in Key Stage 2 for pupils with cognitive learning difficulties. Twelve pupils attend this unit at the present time. Pupils attending these units are drawn from across the local authority. There have been significant changes to staffing since the last inspection, partly as the result of the rise in the number of pupils on roll and the additional resourced unit in Key Stage 2. Five teachers and seven teaching assistants have joined the staff since the last inspection. Significant building work has taken place on the school site since the last inspection. Most of the school is now housed in a new building and the remaining part of the old school has been refurbished. The school met the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

A breakfast club and after-school club setting are provided on site by a private provider. This is subject to a separate inspection.

Bewsey is an `Eco Green Flag School' and holds the gold award for Investors in People.
