Welcome to Beaumont Primary
Hello and welcome to the new school year here at Beaumont. We are in the midst of extremely exciting times; our brand new multi million pound build began in August and is now well underway. It will be ready for children in September 2018. We are enjoying watching the building landscape change every day as BAM work the site, which will include new roads, car parks and sport pitches as well as the new academy build.
Beaumont Primary Academy opened its doors in September 2016 with 21 Reception pupils. This class has now grown to 29 and in addition we admitted 48 new Reception pupils for September 2017. Beaumont is a brand new 4-11 primary, situated in the grounds of Moor End Academy in Crosland Moor and next door to Beaumont Park. It is a free school presumption, which means it has been established by the Local Authority in response to a basic place planning need. The academy is currently working in a well-equipped and spacious temporary modular building. The permanent academy building is a multi-million pound, purpose built school with state of the art facilities and will be constructed in partnership with Kirklees Council. As part of South Pennine Academies, Beaumont Primary Academy is extremely well supported by a successful Trust team led by the CEO, Jane Acklam. We are grateful to all the staff and students at Moor End, who have been endlessly patient throughout the changes to site as a result of the build.
As Principal of Beaumont, I have over 20 years teaching experience, the last 15 working as a Senior Leader and Deputy Head in a school which was consistently judged to be outstanding, including three outstanding Ofsted inspections. At Beaumont we have appointed a highly skilled and experienced team of staff, who are all committed to providing an outstanding education for our students. We are passionate about what we do and determined to succeed in giving children the best we can. Our expectations are high and we work relentlessly to realise them. We are proud to say that our first Reception cohort achieved a Good Level of Development which exceeded the figure nationally.
Our belief is that all children whatever their background can achieve highly. We know that children only get one chance at their education and we have a duty to ensure that at the end of each stage of their education, children are ready and prepared for the next stage. Alongside the strong focus on attainment, a carefully planned programme of opportunities will enrich experiences, allowing the holisitic development of students, including embracing the community around them. Amongst many other things, pupils enjoy a morning mile, a range of sporting opportunities and regular outdoor experiences in Beaumont Park. We have had many visitors to the academy this year, all of whom have enhanced the learning and experiences of our youngsters. There are some fabulous photographs on our website of all of our activities
Our academy has a vibrant school community from diverse cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds. We want students to be proud of themselves and who they are, whilst having the highest standards of respect and understanding for each other. Our children are role models who already make positive contributions to society and we have been very proud of the way they have represented us this year. We have a very supportive parent community and believe our relationship with our families is key to our success.
We have the advantage of sharing a site with a high school, which means staff and students from Moor End Academy will be able to come and work with us and share their skills and expertise. Our children enjoy reading friends with Y9 students in the high school library and they were lucky enough to be invited to the performance of The Jungle Book at the end of term.
Our whole team are really excited about the journey which lies ahead as we build our new school from scratch. Beaumont Primary Academy has Reception and Year 1 places available now and is also now taking applications for Reception places for September 2018.The school has an open policy and you are welcome to visit us anytime.
