WELCOME TODUKE OF BEDFORD PRIMARY SCHOOL
On behalf of the Governors, the staff, the pupils and myself it gives me great pleasure, as Headteacher, to welcome you to The Duke of Bedford Primary School website.
We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children. We know that The Duke of Bedford School is a school where children feel safe within a happy, stimulating and attractive environment in which each child is encouraged to enjoy learning and develop a lively and inquiring mind...
My child particularly enjoys the afternoon lessons and comes home and tells me all about them regularly. There is understanding and knowledge but also enjoyment as the information can't come out quickly enough.
The staff are all so upbeat. The children love going to school and are doing very well. I couldn’t be happier.
Overall my child is very happy and safe at this school and seems well supported by teachers and peers. I have been particularly impressed by the buddy system between y6 and yR and how friendly and welcoming the older children are to the younger ones.
The DoB staff have all gone above and beyond, I couldn’t be more grateful.
DoB is in my mind an excellent centre of learning. I wholeheartedly commend the leadership and safeguarding support.
Whilst I have always found DoB to be an outstanding school, recent events have reinforced my faith in how the school performs.
The support that has been offered to both of my children academically and with their personal wellbeing is little short of exceptional.
It was lovely to stay behind and share a picnic with the children after the races were over. The turnout was fantastic and it was a lovely atmosphere. A real community event!
It was a pleasure to attend Sports Day. It was all very well organised and the children's behaviour was impeccable, they were a credit to the school and their families. I have never seen so many happy faces!
