Good News! Please see the letter from nick gibb mp congratulating Beecroft Primary School for being in the top 3% of schools nationally for progress from Key Stage 1 to 2.
A Mile A Day: We have already started this ‘Daily Mile’ initiative with Year 6 and are now extending this to all Key Stage 2 Years 3 – 6. This is not an extension of playtime but an effort to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of children through a short burst of physical activity. Mental wellbeing is as important as physical. 10 laps around the playground is a mile Children do not have to run their laps but will be encouraged to walk briskly if not running. A time in the day has been allocated to each class. New Year: A time to get minds and bodies active and create a sense of wellbeing. Continue reading
