On 7 July 2017, Bellevue Place Education Trust brought together all 150 staff across the seven schools to celebrate another successful year. The event had an overwhelming turnout of school staff, governors, trustees and selected guests and was sponsored by Civica and Schools Buying Club.
Claire Delaney, Chair of Trustees thanked everyone for their hard work throughout the year and highlighted the fantastic achievements of the staff to ensure the pupils benefit from the vision of the Trust, by ‘learning’, ‘enjoying’ and ‘succeeding’. Mark Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Trust then presented the ‘BPET Awards Ceremony’ with awards kindly sponsored by Joskos; prizes included an Amazon Echo Dot and high-street vouchers.
Claire congratulated all staff on the achievement of pupils, across the Trust 81% of pupils achieved a Good Level of Development (The 2016 national average was 66%) and 88% of pupils passed the phonics screening in Year 1 (2016 national average of 81%).
Everyone in the Trust would like to say a big thanks to our sponsors: Civica, Schools Buying Club and Joskos for their kind donations and support throughout the year.
This academic year has certainly been a busy one with the significant milestones in building and school performance. Whitehall Park School were judged ‘Good’ with an ‘outstanding’ feature in their first Ofsted and Braywick Court School did very well in their recent ofsted, report to be published shortly.
Other significant operational achievements were that Whitehall Park School moved into their permanent site in February, Deer Park School had planning permission accepted for the new site and Kilburn Grange School gained full occupancy of their building after sharing it with a boys’ school. Watling Park School is also due to move into their new building in the summer, ready for the next academic year.
We hope all the staff and pupils at the schools across the Trust have a relaxing, well deserved break and look forward to starting the new year in September, with the 1,100 pupils next year!
