Message from the Chief Executive

We take the health and safety of our pupils and staff very seriously. Following updated government guidance on Monday 16th March 2020, please find below the current advice. We will continue to keep you updated with any developments, including whether we will need to close at some point in the future. However, all the Trust schools currently remain open.
At this time, no pupils or staff at any of the Trust’s academies or schools have been confirmed to have the Coronavirus.  To help reduce the risk of infection, the Trust has purchased hand sanitiser and staff and pupils have been asked to use this, and to wash their hands, regularly.  Current guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) and Public Health England (PHE) remains that schools should stay open and pupils continue to attend school unless they have symptoms (a new and continuous cough and/or high temperature) or have received medical advice to stay at home. If anyone in your household has the above symptoms, all members of the household should self-isolate for 14 days.  We would ask any parents or visitors suffering from symptoms of Coronavirus not to come into school for any reason. It is likely that government advice will change as the spread of Coronavirus continues.  If we are required to close our academies, we will ensure you are informed and will do all we can to ensure that the effect on pupils’ education is limited. Any information about closure will be sent via text, published on this website and via the schools’ official social media (e.g. Facebook, FROG, Marvellous Me – whichever your Academy uses).  Further official advice can be found at Government advice on Coronavirus and Public Health England advice on Coronavirus  

 Kind regards

We cater for students with complex learning needs, students with autistic spectrum conditions and others with identified social, emotional and mental health.

Beaumont Hill is an exciting and dynamic school in which there are opportunities for every child to succeed in their own way. We offer a curriculum that meets the very diverse needs of all our learners, while providing opportunities for inclusive activities and enhanced social experiences.

The large staff group includes teachers, teaching assistants, Speech & Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Family Support Workers. Together, this multi -disciplinary team work to combine the educational, health and care needs so that each and every child has a distinctive programme designed to help them overcome barriers to learning and achieve their potential.

Our skilled staff offer different curriculum provision, expert teaching and support to children of all abilities. Their knowledge and understanding of the special needs of each child ensures that every child can succeed.

Located at the centre of the Education Village this school is unique in giving children the opportunity for inclusion and to eat, play and learn alongside their mainstream peers. With specialist facilities such as the hydro and swimming pools, performance theatres and immersive theatres children have a huge range of opportunities to learn in a range of ways in a range of settings.

We are also fortunate to have a team of outdoor education staff who enable our students to access the community, Forest School, the local area, and residential trips.

Sport, music and the arts are an important part of our school. Alongside the curriculum we offer many opportunities for children to take part in lunch and after school clubs such as kayaking, swimming, choir, cookery, sensory and film clubs.

In Beaumont Hill Academy we want to recognise and celebrate achievement of all types: academic, social skill development, attendance, confidence, communication amongst many others. Here we use praise and encouragement to support our pupils to achieve to their highest possible potential in everything that they do.

Our students tell us, through surveys, that they enjoy coming to school and we want parents to feel as welcome here too. There are many opportunities to meet with staff formally and we encourage parents to come into school for our special events throughout the year.

Please enjoy looking at the information on the website and feel free to contact the school if you require any further information.
