Headteachers comments to Ofsted Report - Nov. 2016
We were pleased to receive a very positive report from the Ofsted inspectors, being graded a “good” school in all categories. I am absolutely delighted with this outcome. You will see that the report is written in very positive terms.
Bridgewater has been on a significant and unusual journey transforming from a Middle to a Primary school. That transformation was always going to bring challenges. I am proud of the way we have overcome those challenges, what we have achieved at the school and the recognition that we have now received. I am confident this provides a strong foundation for the school's future.
My thanks go to every single member of our staff team for their on going hard work and commitment as well as their efforts during the inspection process. Our pupils were fantastic throughout the inspection. Thank you to the governing body for their hard work, challenge and support and thank you also to all parents for the excellent feedback received via Ofsted ParentView during the inspection. It was a real team effort and a result that our whole school community should be proud of.

Performance Information & Reports
There is no requirement for schools to publish their Key Stage 2 (end of primary school) results for the academic year 2021 to 2022 on their website, as the Secretary of State will not publish this data. This is because statutory assessments returned for the first time this year, since 2019, without adaptations, after disruption caused by the pandemic. The government have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year, because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.
We are displaying our 2021-22 key stage 2 performance measures on our website (see below). Before that, our last set of KS2 data was for the 2016-17 academic year. After that we were transitioning from a middle school (for children aged 9-13) to a primary school, so we did not have year 6 pupils and subsequently, KS2 SATs were suspended, due to the pandemic.
For further information, please see the DfE Performance Tables website.
