  • To encourage students to always strive to achieve the very best in everything they do.

  • To ensure students have an understanding of fundamental British values, including those of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, respect and tolerance.

  • To have the knowledge, understanding and skills to be a responsible citizen and lead a successful and happy life.

  • To support and develop every individual’s interests

ACTIVE TUTORIAL RATIONALE

At The Beacon School our core values; we care, we aim high, we achieve together, we lead the way exemplify our attitude and approach towards developing the whole child as we believe in developing their social and emotional skills and encourage them to make the most of opportunities and responsibilities so they are able to flourish in the 21st century.  Underpinned by our Core British Values, Active Tutorial is an integral part of this development.  On designated days during the school week, Registration time offers students the opportunity to widen their understanding of and access to, their own world and that of others around them.  Within the safety of a familiar group, students are encouraged to debate, reflect and respond to a variety of spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues.  This not only plays a significant part in developing their ability to learn and achieve, but also encourages them to become active citizens within our society.
