At Beacon Rise Primary School we believe it is essential to provide a well balanced, challenging curriculum. All children are encouraged to meet high teacher expectations and learn effectively.
We believe it important that children acquire skills, knowledge and confidence that can be applied to all future learning experiences, including social, physical and spiritual development. We believe this to be important to allow each individual child to develop into a responsible member of the community. To achieve this we strive to provide a school environment that is secure, stimulating, supportive and memorable, whereby each child feels valued as part of our community and encouraged to achieve their full potential.
At Beacon Rise Primary School we aim to provide an environment in which members of the school and wider community are accepted, understood, safe, secure, welcomed and challenged. We believe that each person has a unique and valuable contribution to make in enhancing and enriching our community.
We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity regardless of issues of race, belief, disability, sexuality, gender or class and to provide equality of access for all. We have very high expectations of both adults and young people.
Our school is situated in Kingswood on the outskirts of the large historical city of Bristol, England. Beacon Rise Primary School is set amongst large playing fields, on a hill with magnificent views across Bristol and towards the beautiful heritage city of Bath. The school is a stone’s throw from Hanham Mount where John Wesley, one of the founders of Methodist Church, first preached to the masses in the open. A beacon, visible across the city, was placed on the site in the festival of Britain in 1951. It was replaced in 2007.
Bristol itself is an ancient trading city famous for its historical port and engineering heritage. The SS Great Britain and Clifton Suspension Bridge are found in the city. More recently Bristol is famed as the home of Concord, Aardman Animations – producers of the multi Academy Award winning Wallace and Gromit films, Bansksy and the world famous Natural Division of the BBC.
