A Bit About Us
Beeston Fields Primary school was originally built in 1931 and began as two schools, an Infant and Junior. These amalgamated in April 2001 to form the new school of Beeston Fields Primary and Nursery School and in September 2015 we became an academy joining the Flying High Trust Partnership.
We have a purpose built Foundation Stage Unit where both F1 and F2 children play and learn. Main school has two classes per year group, each classroom is well resourced and include interactive whiteboards to engage the children in their learning. Our period building has many small areas to allow 1:2:1 and small group activities to take place away from the distractions of the main classroom; each Key Stage has a 'hub' with resources appropriate to their age ranges.
Our two halls provide us space for our assemblies, physical education, dining, clubs, performances and other community events. Our bright school library provides an attractive space for the children to foster a love of books and reading. We are pleased that with regular investment we are able to provide lots of engaging and interesting books.
We are also very fortunate with our outdoor space. We have a large astroturf pitch which allows for all year round use as well as a playground and trim trail with grassed area. The Foundation Stage has its own outdoor space allowing our younger children; a quieter place to play and learn. We are pleased to be part of the local community by running an allotment which gives our children opportunities to learn about growing plants and vegetables.
A Note from the Head.
Beeston Fields Primary and Nursery school is a happy school where children are taught in a caring environment and are encouraged to achieve to the very best of their ability. We provide a rich curriculum which aims to develop each child’s potential to the full. We promote excitement, enjoyment and an enthusiasm for learning.
We truly believe that working with parents is essential and we foster an open relationship between home and school. Whilst your child is here with us you will have many opportunities to share in their education and celebrate their achievements.
We offer a wide range of balanced learning opportunities to help your child to grow into a responsible and independent young person. We have spacious facilities at school to further support the work of our friendly, committed and enthusiastic staff.
We provide much more than the National Curriculum here at Beeston Fields. We invite workshops, theatre companies and musicians into school and take pupils out of school on educational visits to explore the local community around them.
We hope that our website gives you an insight into what our school is all about and we encourage all prospective parents to visit our school. I will be more than happy for you to make an appointment with me so I can show you round and give you the opportunity to see our school at work and to answer any specific questions that you may have.
Please contact the school office to arrange a visit; you will be made very welcome by all our pupils and staff.
