Your child’s nutrition.

At Bedford Greenacre School wellbeing is a crucial part of school life.  It is our priority to ensure that pupils are happy, healthy and well cared for during their time with us.  Our small classes allow us to provide individual attention to each of our pupils to ensure they are coping with the challenges that life can bring.  Our Form Tutors are supportive and are pleased to communicate with families about ways we can assist their child.  Our leadership team value the importance of a hands-on approach and enjoy being involved in the everyday routines of school life.  This means that our leadership have a good relationship with the pupils and this helps to provide a high level of mutual respect.  We are quick to respond to the needs of our pupils and communicate effectively with their families.
