Vision, Ethos and Values



Our vision is to provide a school community which provides children with the opportunity to be truly accepted, understood and supported to fulfil their potential. We prepare our children to become effective members of society and leave Beech Lodge School with the range of skills, experiences and qualifications which will enable them to successfully transition to the next stage of their lives. We endeavour to allow each pupil develop and blossom at their own pace allowing them to flourish into well-rounded and fulfilled individuals.


To achieve this vision, we create an environment which is nurturing, supportive and responsive to the individual needs of our pupils and their families. At Beech Lodge School every day is a new day; acceptance, empathy and good humour is embedded throughout our school approach. 




We are a Values Based School.

Values based Education is an approach to teaching that works by focusing on values. It creates a positive and strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and focus on a continual and structured cross curricular development of students' social, emotional and interpersonal skills.

This positive learning environment is achieved through values that are continually modelled by staff through demonstration of best practice throughout Beech Lodge School. For more information on our Values Based Approach and PSHE curriculum click here

Examples of values that we model at Beech Lodge to develop pupils' social, moral and spiritual characteristics;

  • Respect
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Teamwork
  • Honesty
  • Curiosity
  • Resilience
  • Empathy

We achieve these values by teaching children the importance of being part of a wider community.

Our values are embodied in our three pupil generated school rules:

  • Respect yourself
  • Respect others
  • Respect the environment
