Way Ahead in Weymouth

Beechcroft St Paul’s Primary School has been confirmed as outstanding across the board in a recent school inspection.

Praising the informed partnership between the Headteacher and the parish priest, the SIAMS inspector reported that "All aspects of provision centre on the child and the creative and flexible curriculum adapts to children’s emotional and spiritual needs."

"Collective worship and Religious Education (RE) ensure that the children fully understand the application of the school’s key values within their Christian context."

"The reflective introduction of Rights Respecting Schools and the Global Learning Programme has brought about an attitudinal change in the pupils who recognize the one-ness of children globally. Respect for diverse cultures and beliefs has been robustly constructed upon this recognition."

"The pro-active governing body fully supports the strategies and funding necessary to take forward the school’s vibrant Christian vision and rigorously monitors this."

The school is situated in the parish of St Paul’s, which is a designated urban priority area. 36% of pupils receive pupil premium: well above the Dorset average. Nearly half the children have identified special education needs, and a specialist nurture teacher works with families and individual children with emotional or social difficulties. A foundation unit established in 2013 for children accessing Beechcroft provision before the start of the Reception year. The inspector noted that the impact of the unit is already apparent.
