Curriculum Statement


At Beechwood Primary Academy we have designed a bespoke curriculum for our children underpinned by our values - Democratic, Inclusive, Excelling and Collaborative. We support children to become responsible and motivated learners who embrace challenges and strive for success while supporting their emotional well-being.


Our curriculum provides children with a range of rich experiences to become happy and confident lifelong learners.


Topics are based around enquiry questions designed to weave learning journeys and allow children to learn through discovery and experience. Through our STEM based approach, opportunities are provided for children to develop the skills of Problem Solving, Creativity, Inquiry Skills, Observation, Flexibility and Collaboration.


Community involvement is an important part of our curriculum. We encourage our children to be kind and caring citizens who engage with their community and have a good understanding of the wider world. 


Beechwood are working with Ministry of Eco Education to help support children to understand how their decisions and actions can affect the planet and empower them to make a positive change.   


Our school curriculum aims to:


  • build upon children’s prior learning;
  • use STEM skills to develop deep understanding;
  • provide first hand learning experiences;
  • have opportunities for collaborative learning;
  • challenge, make children think and develop resilience;
  • engage minds and foster creativity;
  • be fully inclusive.
