29/04/2024 – The Big O!

Ofsted, Ofsted, Ofsted

Yes, in one year we hit our Second OFSTED inspection. This was in part that during the last inspection there were some areas OFSTED wanted to check on around communication and support within relationships and behaviour. We invited them back to our school to move freely through out and share their findings. There report has to be moderate and will be shared in 30 working days (not including school holidays). All we can say is they recognised strengths across the Curriculum, Safeguarding, Relationships, workload and pupil’s wider development. As you know, pupils are at the heart of everything we do.


Yogi Yoga!

On Monday, we had Tracey visit us from the Yogi Group. This is an NHS funded group, who run emotional health sessions for children and young people. Tracey visited every class, and everyone seemed to enjoy taking part in different yoga positions. Tracey enjoyed being in with us and said that being in our school was like ‘walking into a giant hug.’


Changing Lives Learning Trust Update

During the last few weeks Bleasdale was heavily involved in the national recruitment campaign for Jonathan’s successor. This concluded on the 18 April 2024 and I am delighted to announce that Judith Schafer will take up the role of CEO from 1st September 2024. Judith is a national leader of the highest calibre, I am sure, like me, you wish Judith every success in her new role and look forward to working with and supporting her to discharge her duties as CEO. With our own Changing Lives Learning Trust consultation having come to a close, we continue to be prudent, pause and carefully watch their next steps.

We have an informal consultation about a proposal to increase the number of places at Bleasdale School, 27 Emesgate Lane, Carnforth, LA5 0RG by 14 places through expansion of existing classes on the main school site and on a proposal to redesignate the type of special educational needs the school is registered to meet.
