Our school became part of Nicholas Postgate Academy Trust on Wednesday 1st October, along with St Joseph’s, Loftus and St Paulinus, Guisbrough. This followed a period of consultation culminating in the signing of the Funding Agreement by the Secretary of State for Education.
Due to legal issues with regards to their PFI funding, Sacred Heart Secondary School and St Benedict’s Primary School will join the Trust in due course. Despite the delay all the schools will continue to work together as a family of schools.
We look forward to working together to ensure that we continue with our reputation for high standards and innovation in Catholic Education.
St Bede's is part of the parishes of St Bede's, Marske and Our Lady of Lourdes, Saltburn. It was built 40 years ago.
Our last school inspection by OFSTED judged us as outstanding in every area. Please read the full report on the OFSTED website. Our Religious Education inspection that took place in December 2013 also judged us as outstanding in every area.
We hold several national charter marks including; Healthy Schools, The Green Flag Eco Award, The Science Quality Mark, Geography Quality Mark in Silver, Leading Parent Partnership Accreditation, Artsmark Gold, Diana Award for our Anti-Bullying work, Active Mark, RE Quality Mark and we are now a Fairtrade school.
We are incredibly proud to announce that we gained Teaching School Status and are in a Teaching School Alliance which has incredible strengths. Co-operative learning is so powerful and benefits each and every child in our school community.
Our SATS results have been consistently high and our wonderful staff work incredibly hard to provide the children in their care with the best possible academic education. However, we work equally hard to bring out all those hidden God-given gifts and talents in each and every child, to teach them good values by which to live by, to prepare them for the fast changing world in which they live and more importantly still- for each child to know they have been made and loved by God.
Here at St Bede's, when we welcome the child to the school, we also welcome the family.
Mrs K. Siedle, Executive Head Teacher
