Stay Bright, Wear Bright Day

On Friday 9th February we will be encouraging all children and staff to dress brightly.

We aim to raise awareness of mental health in young children. A small donation of 50p will be collected on the day and given to the CHUMS charity who support young children with mental health needs. 

Bedford Road Lower School

Welcome to our school.


Bedford Road Primary School is situated in the heart of Kempston. Our school has recently converted from a Lower school to accommodate Year 5 children from September 2017 and Year 6 children from 2018. We currently have 330 children on roll in 12 classes.


In addition to our creative and well-qualified teaching staff we have excellent teaching assistants who work across the school supporting and enhancing children’s learning. All our staff take huge pride in their work and in doing the best job they can to support the children’s education and social development.


We are very proud of the successes of our school – the excellent relationships we have with families and friends within our community and of the governors, staff and children who work hard to make our school a happy place where we can learn together in friendship. We hope that the close cooperation and partnership between school and home will enhance and support your child’s development throughout these important Primary school years.

Our most recent Ofsted report highlights the following strengths of our school:

"The school’s range of themes in subjects is innovative and exciting and promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness very well."


"Leaders, managers and governors have been successful in driving improvement, so that standards continued to rise and teaching to improve since previous inspection."


"The curriculum prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain."


We very much hope you find this website useful and informative. Please feel welcome to contact us if you need any further information or would like to visit the school. We will be pleased to give whatever assistance we can.
