Curriculum at Beech Academy
At Beech Academy we are committed to providing a purposeful and empowering curriculum that fully prepares pupils for the next steps in their school career, as well as the challenges of the wider world.
The Beech curriculum is carefully designed to address the needs of every pupil, taking in to account their starting points, dreams, aspirations and ambitions. We have created a curriculum that prioritises personal development and well-being, alongside academic achievement. The curriculum at Beech Academy recognises the importance of enterprise, employability and preparing our pupils for adulthood.
The Beech curriculum is designed to realise the school’s vision of ‘Turning I can’t into I can’ and to reflect our core values;
Underpinned by nurture principals, our curriculum is the whole learning experience offered by the school. We recognise that how children learn is as important as what they learn. Children are learning all the time and we aim to optimise learning opportunities throughout the school day; in curriculum time, during care routines and social times, for example.
