Belle Vue Infant School was inspected by OFSTED in March 2016 and was graded OUTSTANDING. Since April 2017 we have become the infant part of Alderwood School 4-16.

Alderwood Infant School currently provides an outstanding level of education for its pupils. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is highly effective. Teachers know their pupils exceptionally well and so plan lessons that engender their enthusiasm and a love for learning. Pupils make exceptional progress from their starting points. By the time they reach the end of Year 2, they attain levels that are at least in line with, and frequently much higher than national averages. The most able pupils are consistently challenged and so achieve very well.

Provision in the early years is highly effective. Children make an excellent start to their education because the setting is exceptionally well run to meet their particular needs.

Pupils are kept very safe. Their attitudes and behaviour are delightful and they make an exceptional contribution to the strong community cohesion at the school. Their attitudes to learning are excellent.

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school.

We are constantly striving to improve our school. Click here for a copy of our school improvement plan main targets.
