Welcome to Beecholme Primary School


Welcome, whether you are visiting our website as an existing parent, a potential parent or as a member of our local or wider community, we are sure you will enjoy finding out a little more about our wonderful school.


Beecholme is a one form entry primary school with its own Nursery in the heart of Mitcham. Beecholme is part of the PACE Academy trust alongside four other schools. We are set back from the main streets of Mitcham which gives our wonderful school that country feel. We are fortunate enough to be based in superb grounds with extensive outdoor space for the children to use and facilitate throughout the year. These include: bigger than average sized classrooms, outside learning areas for all year groups, fully functioning library, playground with a basketball court, a larger than normal field and a pond which is also used as a quiet reading area.


The children, staff and governors are extremely proud of our school and as the Head of Beecholme it is a privilege to work in partnership with everyone but most importantly our wonderful children!


Our distinctive features include a strong inclusive ethos where children are kept at the heart of all we do. Our vision statement and its main threads; standards and achievement, provision, well-being and partnership and community comes to life through our child centred and enquiry-based approach to teaching and learning which encourages and supports children to become enthusiastic, independent and resilient learners.


We have a clear focus on raising standards in all aspects of the curriculum by inspiring children in their learning whilst also ensuring children develop the personal and social skills, they need to be successful in life.


Visitors to the school comment on the warm, positive family atmosphere and take pleasure from the children’s enthusiasm for learning, positive learning behaviours and friendliness.


We have an excellent team of staff who are fully committed to working in partnership with families and the local community to ensure that every child in the school is happy, safe, secure and achieves success in both their learning and personal achievements.


We believe full partnership with all members of our community is the best way to ensure success for our children and therefore encourage others to engage in school life. For parents, there are a range of opportunities for you to get involved in including parent workshops, membership of the Friends of Beecholme, attending performances, volunteering in school and accompanying classes on school trips. We have already developed close links with many members of the local community but always welcome more. Please do let us know if you are interested in supporting our children’s learning!


Visits to the school are encouraged and we welcome you to any of our planned open days.


I look forward to meeting you all very soon.
