Welcome to Beacon View Primary Academy
As Chair of the Local Governing Body it is my genuine pleasure to welcome you to our school and to encourage you to find out more about what makes Beacon View such a great place to come and learn.
Choosing the right primary school for our children is one of the most important and sometimes hardest decisions we make as parents. We are all keen to find somewhere which has the right balance of learning, fun and pastoral care. More than anything we want our children to be safe and happy learners, to make friends, to enjoy coming to school and to develop the foundations for a lifelong love of learning. When we get that right in a primary school, as I believe we do at Beacon View, it sets everything in train for a successful secondary school career and beyond.
We are a popular school with a great future ahead of us and, as a member of United Learning, have access to support, expertise and opportunities that no stand-alone school is able to benefit from. Above all, we have great people; teachers, non-teaching staff, pupils and families – all working hard to ensure we live up to our promise of bringing out the best in everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Like any website it can only show a small proportion of the amazing work and activities that take place in our school. But I hope it gives you a broad picture of what a happy and thriving school community we are and how proud we are of our pupils and staff.
