Learning to live, Learning to shine.

Beaconside C of E Primary School & Acorn Nursery

“Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works” (Matthew 5:16)

Our Vision

Our aim is to give the children as many opportunities to learn first hand as we can. The children will go on at least one visit per half term as well as residential visits in every year from Year 2. The children will also get visits from experts ranging from chefs, Former members of the RAF, Zoobidoo and a wheelchair basketball player. 

As well as this, we start a progression of outdoor pursuits from Year 2 where the children's will experience bouldering, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, ghyll scrambling and paddle boarding. We are very fortunate to live on the edge of the Lake District and we intend on making the most of it!

Below is an overview of the planned visits, experts, outdoor pursuits and residentials for this year, please note, these are subject to change and we are working very hard to ensure the children can get these experiences.

Such is our commitment, that as many of the visits incur costs, if you are struggling in any way financially to afford the visits, please contact the school office and we will work with you to find a solution!
