Further Building Success for Summer 2017
Mark Rutherford School submitted two applications for capital funding to the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). The SFA received requests for more than £1.3 billion for over 3,800 projects and I am very pleased to tell you that both our applications were successful.
The total value of funding we successfully secured is £400,091. This will support projects to secure the lifetime of our school buildings.
In challenging financial times we remain committed to supporting our students to achieve the best education possible in the best environment possible and over the past four years, with support from the SFA, we have been able to enjoy learning in more sustainable and much improved facilities.
In order to continue to provide the best facilities we will continue to work hard on securing grants to develop our inspirational learning environment. The total amount of funding secured for building projects since 2013 is £2,640,078.
Preparing Students for the Future
The Annual Participation and NEET Report for Bedford Borough 2016/17 shows that Mark Rutherford has had a decline in the number of NEET students (not in education, employment or training) and we are now ranked in the lowest group in Bedford Borough.
Goldington Ward, where many of our students originate from, is in the top 4 wards with the highest percentage of NEETs, making our positive outcome even more remarkable.
This low figure of NEETs is a culmination of many factors that have enabled our young people (who are academic age 16-17) to contribute positively to society; curriculum opportunities, information, advice and guidance, having positive relationships, enjoyment of school, pastoral support, good outcomes, focused interventions, and a wide variety of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities to participate in.
We believe that every child is unique. Our aim is to provide broad, balanced, personalised learning experiences that will enable them to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and to achieve economic well being.
