Our school (children aged 3 / Nursery to 11 / Year 6) is in the heart of Exmouth town centre, a stones-throw away from the beach, Manor Gardens and Holy Trinity Church – and we take pride in making the most of the opportunities all these places offer!
Our vision is for ‘Living life in all its fullness' (John 10:10). The bible teaches us that God wants all his children to flourish, and that community and living well together are of the utmost importance in achieving this aim. We call our community ‘One Big Beacon Family’, together we focus on achieving our Vision for all members of our community. Working with parents and carers, we provide learning and play experiences which engage children’s interests; inspire them to want to know more; motivate them to persevere with their learning and empower them to develop skills of independence. We aim that our children will become:
- Confident individuals who can positively face the successes and challenges of life.
- Successful learners who can take their place in a constantly changing world.
- Responsible citizens who are able to make a positive contribution to today’s diverse society.
- Appreciative and respectful of other people’s uniqueness and talents and recognised and celebrated for their own.
We want each child, member of staff and our wider community to learn to live life in all its fullness, develop wonderful life-long memories of their Beacon years and the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to continue to flourish throughout their lives.
Throughout our lives, we face tough challenges, difficult times and great joy. We can read examples of all these, and how to manage them, in the Bible. In order to live life in all its fullness, we all need support to learn to understand, develop and use strategies which keep us safe, care for and promote our mental health and wellbeing and empower us to be our best selves.
