Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Values and Ethos

At Beckfoot Phoenix School, we are not all the same! Together we are a rich and diverse community where differences are accepted, respected and celebrated. 

Beckfoot Phoenix (3)

We have high expectations. At our school, we want everyone to achieve beyond what could ever be imagined so that all of our children are well prepared for life.  

Our curriculum focuses on the skills our children will need for 'life'. We want children to be confident and successful.  We want them to enjoy learning and develop curiosity.  We want them to think of others and be resilient.   Through our curriculum, our pupils are encouraged to make memories every day so that they learn to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives We expect children to communicate so that they can make choices, question and tell us what they think  We encourage pupils to develop self belief and determination. We provide our children with a sense of security so that they can learn about right and wrong and understand that structures and rules are there to help everyone to live, learn and work together in a society where everyone feels safe.  

Our school community extends far beyond the school building and includes parents, families, therapists, medical staff, other professionals, friends and visitors.  It is important to us that everyone in our school feels able to express themselves within a climate of  trust, tolerance and respect.  

Led by a Trust committed to school improvement and to promoting the safety and welfare of children, we welcome compliments, observations and challenge. Information on how to do this is available from the school office or through the 'Contact Us' section on our website. 

Enjoy Learn Succeed
We want learning to be fun. We want everyone to enjoy being part of our school community and to feel safe, valued and respected within an inclusive school where equality of opportunity is promoted and difference is celebrated. We want our families to feel confident and supported and we want everyone to have a voice. We want to work closely with our families so that our children are at the heart of everything we do. We want our staff to be motivated to think outside the box in providing a stimulating, challenging and appropriate curriculum so that every child is enabled to reach their full potential and learn purposeful skills for life.

We want our children to succeed within a positive and rewarding community environment where high expectations, consistency, boundaries and structures enable them to become confident and independent learners at home and at school and where every small step of success is recognised and celebrated.
