Our curriculum sets out the aims of a programme of education, and sets out the structure for these aims to be implemented, and includes the knowledge and skills to be gained for each subject at each stage.
Our curriculum in KS1 and KS2 is based on the National Curriculum, and includes all of the subjects specified therein: namely, English, mathematics, science, physical education, computing, art and design, design and technology, geography, history and music, and also languages in Key Stage 2. In addition, we also teach religious education and age-appropriate relationships and sex education.
In the Reception class, our curriculum complies with the Department for Education’s statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (EYFS).
All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. We provide a rich, challenging curriculum, which stretches all of our children. Staff monitor and track pupils' progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed.

If any additional information is required, please speak with Mrs Rebecca Neeves, Headteacher.
Through our school values, we acknowledge our responsibilities to enrich lives and promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We believe in lifelong learning and aim to equip our children to live life today and be ready for tomorrow.
At Beacon Hill we have designed a broad and balanced curriculum, which celebrates diversity and develops the skills and knowledge of all children. Our curriculum provides opportunities for all children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners, who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.
