A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

Curriculum overview

Our Curriculum Intent

Our core purpose is to strive for exceptional learning so that our students gain the qualifications, skills and confidence they need to succeed in the wider world.  Our curriculum is the vehicle to achieve this by.

The Beacon School is an inclusive and thriving learning community and our aim is that we have a broad and balanced curriculum that is also flexible in its delivery so that all children can access it and be highly successful through it.

The fundamental intent of our curriculum is:

  • To ensure competency in literacy, numeracy and oracy
  • To give students the disciplinary knowledge in a broad range of subjects to allow them to enter their future pathway of their choice
  • To equip the students with the knowledge and skills relevant to life  in the 21st century 
  • To nurture students to become curious, resilient, empathetic, reflective and who aim for excellence

We have made clear commitments to our school community and the impact of our curriculum will be measured through the achievement of realising these commitments.

Our Commitment:

  • Learning and Teaching - for every child to be inspired by learning led by highly skilled practitioners
  • To develop well-being and character so that all members of our school can be highly successful in a 21st century global economy
  • To build strong relationships with our community

The school values are excellence and respect.  We live these values through the broad curriculum that we offer. 

At The Beacon School curriculum embraces everything that we do.  From the provision of a broad and balanced offer at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 to a comprehensive Next Steps and Careers programme, to an extensive offer of PSHE and Active Tutorials and high quality RS education and programme of collective worship.  To the sports field, whole school production, excellence in Art, Drama and Music extra curricular provision, to our Scholars Programme, to the large Duke of Edinburgh programme and the impact upon student development as they travel out on our plethora of local, national and foreign trips including our global expedition. 

The three year Key Stage 3 curriculum is broad and balanced.  This breadth of experience over the key stage provides a solid foundation for students to move into the two year GCSE.  It aims to fully prepare our young people for life and study at Key Stage 4 – and beyond – by providing a comprehensive and challenging curriculum, building knowledge and skills through passionate and responsive teaching based firmly on Rosenshine’s principles for instruction, with a range of enriching opportunities both within school and the wider community.

In Year 7, we induct students into The Beacon School’s clear routines and high expectations.  We develop a love of learning within a culture that promotes resilience, teamwork, empathy, the purpose of struggle and the joy of reward, and the benefit of going the extra mile.

At Key Stage 4 students study the core of English, Maths, Science and Physical Education.  In addition they can take a further four subjects.  One of which is taken from the Ebbac group of subjects.

This is a policy response to assist us moving towards the government benchmarks for Ebbac.  Through the options process students can choose subjects from all of the Faculties if they wish. 

This maintains breadth whilst giving the opportunity to pursue excellence in subjects students are passionate about and is in line with all of the other GLF Secondary Schools.  Students are supported by a well refined options process which ensures they choose well for their future.  Learning is deepened at KS4 which supports our drive for excellence.
