For further information on the curriculum we teach, please speak with Mrs C Miller, Headteacher.
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 are aware of children who have exceptional talents and gifts and monitor or track their progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed. For further details see separate policies: Inclusion, More Able, Gifted and Talented”.
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.

The school has very recently adopted a new approach to the teaching of English called The Power of Reading.
This puts high quality texts at the heart of the curriculum whilst enabling children to learn across a full range of literary forms.
We will uploading further details of this provision including an updated curriculum overview in the Summer Term.
However in the final few weeks of the Spring term we are running a whole school unit on the text 'Here We Are. Notes for Living on Planet Earth' by Oliver Jeffers. This will be promoting the positive mental health and well being of the children by exploring and supporting their thoughts and feelings about returning to school.
What is Real PE?
Real PE is a unique, child-centred approach. It transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge every child in primary school.
It focuses on the fundamental movement skills of a child's physical development:
Real PE develops the whole child, each term there is a multi ability focus:
* Health and Fitness
Each week the class teacher is teaching the children from the Real PE curriculum. In addition to this every class has an hour PE lesson with a specialist sport coach where they are able to transfer the skills they are developing in Real PE into more competitive sports.
