Child Q

You will be as shocked and appalled as we are to learn about the Child Q incident and we understand the distress and anger within our community. If, as a group of parents/carers, you would like a space to discuss the case, this can be facilitated. As a school, we want to reassure parents/carers that we uphold the most rigorous safeguarding procedures.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the case or have any concerns, please speak to Miss Rader or Mr Bignall. Please read the statement from Group Director for Children and Education and the Director of Education for Hackney on our website or by clicking here

OFSTED- It's Official! We're Good with Outstanding Features!

This fantastic news follows a two-day Ofsted inspection, which took place 11-12 January 2022. We are delighted that Ofsted has recognised all the excellent work going on at De Beauvoir and particularly the pupils' “exemplary attitudes” and that they “help, listen and work together with compassion and understanding”.  Whilst Quality of Education, Personal Development, Leadership and Management and Early Years Provision were recognised to be good, Behaviours and Attitudes was rated as outstanding, and we couldn’t be prouder of our pupils and staff. Well done!

Lateral Flow Tests: We are recommending that pupils who are feeling ill with symptoms of COVID-19, test with a PCR.  Despite legal restrictions changing, if your child tests positive, we are still asking families to self-isolate as is recommended in the coronavirus guidance. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading. Lateral Flow Tests are still available and can be ordered here or collected from locally from here.

Wraparound care is changing and we will no longer be hosting Breakfast and After-School Clubs at De Beauvoir. Find out more information on the Holy Trinity website here. Expressions of interest should be made by completing the Google Form for Breakfast Club and Extended Day Care, and you will be contacted when your child secures a place.
