In December 2014, Ofsted rated Bude Junior 'GOOD' because...
“Achievement has been steadily improving since the last inspection and pupils achieve well. They make good progress throughout the key stage.
Pupils’ attainment is now broadly average by the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics, with some groups of pupils attaining above average results.
Pupils enjoy a wide range of subjects although some cultural opportunities are limited. Work in and out of lessons, as well as numerous clubs and additional activities provide pupils with many exciting opportunities and experiences.
Pupils who need extra help are given it quickly and to good effect. Those pupils supported by the pupil premium make rapid progress in all subjects. Pupils taught in the Area Resource Base also do exceptionally well.
The school’s sporting provision is a strength, providing many opportunities that contribute to the pupils’ enjoyment of school.
Good leadership and management since the last inspection mean that the school has improved quickly. Leaders at all levels have worked well together to improve pupils’ attainment and the quality of teaching.
The governing body has high aspirations for the school. It provides good challenge and support to other leaders.
Pupils behave well, are polite and courteous and work hard. They feel safe and take very good care of each other. Parents agree that the school is a safe place to learn.
The quality of teaching has improved. Most teachers plan exciting and purposeful activities that motivate pupils and help them learn well. Pupils respond quickly to adults’ instructions which means that little learning time is wasted.”
