Beetham C Of E Aided Primary School


Welcome to Beetham CE Primary School.

I am very pleased to introduce myself as Headteacher of our happy and successful village primary school.  Our school really is at the heart of the village and church communities and this is partly what makes it so special.

However, what our school is really all about are the children and families who come here every day.  One of my favourite times of the day is early morning when we open the front door and there is a real ‘buzz’ in school.  Children, toddlers, parent and carers all chat together and show how our family atmosphere and friendly environment really makes a difference for everyone.

Our children thrive both academically and personally within the curriculum we offer.  We pride ourselves on differentiated learning for individuals, and trying to meet all children’s needs, whatever they may be.  We encourage our children to take part in the wide range of activities that we provide.  We hope this enables everyone to find something they enjoy and can be successful at; from swimming to playing the ukulele, performing on stage to cross country running, computing to sewing!

All relationships in and around school are based on our Christian Values and Golden Rules which teach and encourage everyone to treat each other how they would like to be treated themselves.  All adults in school demonstrate our Christian values in their daily work and our excellent links with the church and its members reinforce the importance of these values for everyone.

It is impossible to summarise our school in this brief introduction but I hope that through our website you may begin to understand the vision and ethos that is at the foundation of our work here at Beetham.  If you would like to visit and really see our education in action I would be very pleased to meet you and show you around our very special village school.

Best Wishes

Wendy Nicholas
