Welcome to
Beeston Primary School

We are a large, busy, exciting and very friendly school, with lots going on. 

Our children are very important to us and we are a very special school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We also give our children a thirst for learning that we hope continues with them throughout their future school experiences and adult lives.

An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff, Governors

and the wider community. We would like to be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership, hoping that together we can provide the best education for every child.

We are proud to be an inclusive primary school, bringing together children from a range of economic, social and ethnic backgrounds; creating an exciting and diverse learning community.

The standard of teaching is high throughout school, ensuring that children make good progress with their learning. This is due to our dedicated Teaching Team and Support Staff who ensure that the children are safe, happy and want to learn.

We were judged a ‘Good’ school in all areas of school improvement at our last Ofsted inspection in March 2017. Please read our full report from Ofsted on our school website, alternatively you can download our school app for your smart phone.

Curriculum

Lessons across school are fun and engaging. We follow the National Curriculum which is a set of subjects and standards used by primary schools across England so that children learn the same things. It establishes the subjects taught and the knowledge, skills and understanding required for each subject. Schools do however have the flexibility to decide which topics and themes should be taught, in each year group, to make it more relevant for the children at their schools.

The National Curriculum is organised into key stages which are blocks of school years. At the end of each key stage, the teacher will formally assess your child, accompanied by national tests in Years 2 and Years 6.

There is a lot of teamwork and collaboration within the school enabling children and teachers to develop together.

“…pupils relish the opportunity to produce better-quality writing and more pupils are on track to achieve higher standards.” (OFSTED, 2017)

Characteristics of learning

As teaching at Beeston Primary School is consistently good, we are now focusing on the children’s learning, ensuring all children reach their full potential.

 We have therefore introduced seven characteristics of learning. These are: Reflective Red, Tangerine Teamwork, Why? Yellow, Growth Mindset Green, Brilliant Blue Me, Independent Indigo and Perfect Purple.

Reflective Red- is being able to reflect on your work and actions and improve.

Tangerine Teamwork- is about working together.

Why? Yellow- is about asking questions and challenging others through questioning

Growth Mindset Green- is about trying hard and never giving in.

Brilliant Blue Me- is about being a good friend and knowing how to say sorry.

Independent Indigo- is about working on your own and helping yourself

Perfect Purple- is about taking pride in the work that you do and always trying your best to be the best you can be.

Breakfast Club

The school has operated a successful Breakfast Club for several years. It is open to all children in from Foundation to Year 6 and is open from 7.50am to 8.50am Monday to Friday.

It is run by school staff with the help of children from Year 6 who volunteer as Breakfast Club helpers

The Breakfast Club offers a healthy breakfast of cereal, milk, toast with low-fat spread and low-sugar jam, yoghurt and fruit.

School is delighted with the impact the club is having: Breakfast Club is an oasis for many children, where they can have healthy food and a calm start to the day, and as a result they can concentrate longer, work better and they are in school on time."

In addition, the children are able to socialise with their peers, learning essential life skills, sharing, turn taking and social interaction with children of different ages.

“We all have something special inside of us, even if we are different’ was a typical pupil comment.” (OFSTED, 2017)

Extra Curricular

At Beeston Primary we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities based on the children’s interests.

The after-school clubs we offer range from dance, football and karate to baking, sewing and art. Each club begins at 3.15pm and are finished by 4.30pm.

Our after-school clubs are run by members of the school staff, external agencies and are extremely popular with parents and children.

They not only develop your child’s academic performance but can also influence their life and social skills. Once your child finds an activity that they enjoy, succeeding in the activity could ultimately build their confidence and self-esteem.
