Information about Beech Base

Our teachers plan fun activities based upon our Beech Base topics. Our fantastic teaching assistants lead focus groups and these help us to extend our learning.

Beech base is all about learning, and we follow the 6Rs (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!  If we have been a great learner by demonstrating one of the 6Rs, our name is placed on the sparkly sun and then on the rainbow.  The rainbow children get celebrated during praise worship on a Friday afternoon.
