We have received three consecutive Outstanding Ofsted awards, but as importantly we are a friendly, cohesive community that works relentlessly to place great opportunities in front of pupils and develop them as rounded individuals. The academy has set up and driven a large innovative Teaching School working alongside Central Bedfordshire Council, our Local Authority. We are in an excellent position to develop your skills as a teacher in a calm and ordered environment with motivated pupils. The Teaching School supports 136 schools in the Local Authority and has a strong track record in supporting teachers, at all stages of their career, to develop themselves to their fullest potential. As part of the Bedfordshire Schools Trust (BEST), our aspirations and expectations for our children centre on them achieving to their highest academic potential. Over the last 10 years, no stone has been left unturned by both the Governing Body and our highly dedicated staff team in pursuit of this. Our quest for improvement is relentless and our positive school ethos is a result of not only outstanding teaching but also an innovative curriculum and a wealth of extra-curricular experiences. We believe that no school is successful academically without strong pastoral support and a wide range of enriching experiences, these are available to all children at Robert Bloomfield. We have strived to develop this in equal balance so that every child at the school is able to find their own preferences and pathways as they grow through the school. The result is a school with extremely positive relationships between pupils, parents and staff. As a member of staff you will enjoy working in a rural location, with pupils who are proud of their school.
