The ‘good quality education’ that Belmore provides for all children was recognised by the team of Ofsted inspectors who visited the school in November 2023.
In our most recent report it states how leaders have high expectations for pupils’ learning and achievement. Pupils are enthusiastic about their learning. They are sensible and respectful of others, and they are kind and considerate.
The school community is calm and friendly. Staff notice quickly if any pupil needs extra support, such as for their learning or behaviour. Pupils use the ‘feelings box’ to express on paper if they have any worries. Staff take swift action to put pupils’ minds at rest should any issues arise. Pupils are safe at school.
Pupils enjoy taking on positions of responsibility. Members of the pupil council and prefects contribute positively to the life of the school, presenting assemblies and leading on initiatives such as road safety. Pupil ambassadors present certificates to selected pupils who have demonstrated the school’s values by, for example, showing resilience and learning from mistakes.
Pupils broaden their experiences on educational visits, including to different places of worship. Pupils are encouraged to respect the diversity of backgrounds represented in the school. There is a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, including sports, music and art. Members of the large school choir were delighted to perform in concerts with other schools.
