Beech Base team:

The teachers in Beech base are Mr Webb, Mrs Palmer (0.6) and Mrs Brason (0.4). We have a fantastic teaching assistant called Mrs Boreham. 

Information about Beech Base

Mr Webb, Mrs Palmer and Mrs Brason use our ideas and plan fun activities based upon our topics. Our fantastic teaching assistant leads focus groups and these help us to extend our learning.

Beech base is all about learning and we follow the 6R's (Responsibility, Resilience, Respect, Resourcefulness, Reflection and Reciprocal) to become successful learners. We like to celebrate our achievements as often as possible and earn gems which go towards great whole base rewards! 

Every Friday we have ‘Choosing Time’ as a reward for being excellent learners. During this time we are able to choose from a variety of fun activities. If we have been a great learner by demonstrating one of the 6R's, our name is placed on the rainbow or pot of gold and we are able to do an extra special activity!

Beech Base Governor is:
Mrs Quinn
