Beech Base team:

The teachers in Beech base are Mr Webb, Mrs Palmer (0.6) and Mrs Brason (0.4). We have fantastic teaching assistants called Mrs Smallbones and Mrs Alexander. 

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 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.
