We are delighted to announce that following consultation the federation process between Bessemer and Keyworth Primary School was agreed at a meeting on 23rd April 2019 and a new Governing body elected.

What does this mean for our school?

The move from Soft to Hard Federation means NO CHANGES to:

  • Name of our school
  • Uniform
  • Sarah as Executive Head Teacher
  • Leadership and staff
  • Funding and budget
  • Teaching
  • Admissions
  • Ofsted inspections or existing Good rating
  • School policies and procedures

As a Hard Federation we will continue to:

  • Share resources
  • Share expertise and experience across all areas of the schools
  • Share successful policies
  • Share best practice
  • Offer each other advice and guidance
  • Share staff training
  • Keep our staff as opportunities for staff development are doubled
  • Have one Governing Body instead of two
  • Use our two separate budgets more efficiently to share some costs for greater flexibility and impact
