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.

Children & Learning


Beckfoot Phoenix (9)

At Beckfoot Phoenix, pupils are taught in bases according to age and need. 

We want children to make as much progress as possible.  To do this, our bases link to our curriculum stages.  Children move between bases according to the curriculum they need.  Within each base, there are 2 classes of between 8 and 10 children.  The team of teachers and teaching assistants work together across the base so that children can be grouped for different lessons according to their need. 
Orange base Early Year and Reception Curriculum stages 1 to 3
Red base Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Curriculum stages 1 to 2
Yellow base Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Curriculum stages 2 to 3
Purple base Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Curriculum stages 3 to 4
Blue base Key Stage 2 Curriculum stages 3 to 4
Green base Key Stage 2 Curriculum stages 4 to 5
Autumn Term Covid 19 Update: 

During the Autumn term, to help everybody remain safe, bases are 'bubbles' of only their own children and staff.  Bubbles have their own classrooms,  corridors, toilets, playgrounds and their own entrance and exit points. 

Due to the vulnerabilities of Red base, each class within Red base is its own bubble. 

Staff in bubbles all wear face visors when working with children, and anyone entering from outside the bubble wears full PPE.  

In this way, we can be sure that, should the need arise, we are able to isolate bubbles without compromising the safety of others in the school.
