Ofsted and performance data
We were inspected by OfSTED in July 2022. I am pleased to inform you that we received a ‘Good’ in all areas of judgement. This is a significant improvement on the previous inspection in 2018 and demonstrates the hard work of staff, students, parents and governors in the last few years. Highlights of the report include the following:
• Teachers seek to know and understand every pupil, and pupils have adults who are always there to help them.
While this is fantastic achievement, we understand that BDA can become even better. To become even better, all staff at BDA will strive to continually learn and improve so that they can be the very best teacher, leader and support staff member and therefore ensure our students have the education and character to achieve anything they set their mind to. BDA will have the highest expectations for all, and we will make no apologies for that. Our school culture and core values will be our compass throughout our journey to ensure our students receive the very best education every single day – ‘We will be the ones to make the world a better place.’
