We warmly welcome you to Bedford Road Primary Academy, based in Kempston Bedford, and part of the Knowledge Schools Trust family of schools. 

The children are the reason we are all here and are always at the centre of everything we do and every decision we make. 

Our vision is to enable every one of our children to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for academic excellence, in an environment which is safe, happy and enjoyable, which also supports them to develop a love of learning that will continue throughout life. We want our children to ‘Believe and Achieve Together’. 

We really value the diversity of our community and the richness that diversity brings to our school. Developing successful relationships with parents and carers and our local community, based on the principles of Care, Courtesy and Consideration, are central to ensuring that everyone who is part of Bedford Road, but especially the children, have a happy and successful school experience. 

I am extremely proud, as Headteacher, to lead such a supportive and committed team and feel privileged to be working with such wonderful children. I believe that the relationship we have with our parents and carers is crucial to ensuring the children's on-going success and to this end, we will continue to build those relationships, valuing the role parents and carers make as the children's first and continuing educators.
