Curriculum & Values
The Beecroft Garden learning approach
At Beecroft Garden we bring the curriculum to life by taking an innovative and creative approach.
We believe that children achieve best when excited by and immersed in their learning. Our aim is for our curriculum to develop global citizens of the future, who love learning and have the relevant knowledge skills and attitudes to prosper in an uncertain world.
Our curriculum has been designed to cover the requirements of the national curriculum in a way that excites and inspires children, allowing them to see links between subject and concepts and understand how learning transfers to the real world. It develops children’s life skills and global understanding and has been designed to reflect the rich diversity of our community.
We follow the national curriculum which covers the subjects children need to learn.
The creative arts
A passion for the arts lies at the heart of all we do. Children have rich opportunities to participate in art, drama, music and dance in our school, taught by a specialist team of educators. A focus on the creative arts allows children to develop their self-expression, work collaboratively, communicate in different ways and develop their self- confidence.

Beecroft Garden values

Opportunities are provided throughout the topics for children to learn about and apply these core values.
