Welcome

It is my great privilege to be Principal of Bedelsford School and to welcome you to our website. At Bedelsford we aim to work together in partnership with families and multi-agency colleagues to ensure all our inspiring pupils reach their full potential whatever that may be for each individual.

Our curriculum while incorporating the National Curriculum where appropriate, is innovative and highly personalised to ensure we meet the educational needs of our pupils who all have physical, profound or complex learning difficulties and disabilities. We aim to provide an education that not only enables pupils to continually learn and progress but that also offers exciting and aspirational opportunities to take part in learning activities that prepare them for adulthood and lead to lifelong achievement and wellbeing.

If you think your child would like a place at Bedelsford or you would like to visit the school please contact us. You are very welcome.

Bedelsford School aims to provide a happy, stimulating and safe learning environment where pupils are positively encouraged to engage in their learning with appropriate support provided by skilled staff to access the curriculum.


The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
