Bedelsford School is an outstanding special school which aims to provide innovative education and a challenging environment for pupils aged 2 to 19. The school specialises in educating pupils with a wide range of Physical Disabilities including those with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties and Complex Health needs. However, we are a changing population and many of our pupils now have CLDD (complex learning difficulties and disabilities).

The school converted to Academy status in April 2016 and was last inspected by Ofsted in December 2018 . Inspectors observed: Bedelsford School has high expectations of all and aims to provide consistent and sustained improvement, working collegiately with key partners.

We keenly take account of the development of neuroscientific knowledge and research to better enable us to develop the skills of our staff team, understand the unique ways our pupils learn and implement the teaching strategies which will ensure pupils make the maximum progress they can.

Bedelsford School works in close partnership with Parents/Carers to ensure that collaborative goal setting takes place and that all students reach their full potential.
