Pupils receive expert help to gain the reading and writing skills they need to do well in all subjects. As a result, pupils make good progress

There is much joy in this school. Pupils value their teachers, and the rich and diverse community in which they learn

Teachers take account of individual pupils’ needs in their good lesson planning. They make sure that pupils, even those who arrive at unusual points in the school year, are quickly assimilated and make good progress

Teaching is strong in the sixth form. Teachers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. They show great commitment. Students are fulsome in their praise of the impact their teachers have had on their future education

Lessons are characterised by strong and positive relationships between pupils and teachers. Teachers know pupils well. Often teachers target the learning that individual pupils need because they know them so well

In key stages 1 and 2 teachers plan many opportunities for pupils to deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills.

Coronavirus Update

I am sure you will all know that all schools in the UK will close at the end of the school day on Friday 20th March ‘until further notice’. However, parents of children who are ‘Key Workers’ can continue to bring their children into school so that they can continue to go to work.

A Key Worker is defined as: an employee who provides a vital service, especially in the police, health, or education sectors. The Prime Minister also mentioned jobs like delivery drivers.

If you fall into one of the categories above, or if you believe that your job provides a vital service, please email the school at keyworkers@bemrose.derby.sch.uk stating:

  1. Your name

  2. Your occupation

  3. Your child’s / children’s names and the year group they are in

Send this information to school by Monday 23rd March. You will get a message back from us, as soon as we can, to let you know if your children will be allowed to enter school on Tuesday 24th of March.

For more information, we have created a Coronavirus page which can be accessed by clicking here
