Our Mission Statement 

To provide an exceptional educational experience for all, where potential is nurtured and responsible citizens created

September 2021 

I would like to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself to you.  My name is Anita Spires and I am extremely honoured to be joining the Beechwood Community.

I grew up in the local area and have returned to teach in Slough for the last five years.  This is my first headship but I come with a wealth of experience across a range of school settings.  I intend to apply all of this to ensure your child(ren) have the best academic and pastoral journey at our school.

Everything that we do will be built around three values: Kindness, Respect and Excellence.  Our expectations as a school are high because we know the potential each of our students has.  If they make themselves proud and you proud of their achievements, then we have done our job.

This year we hope that, as with the country as a whole, we will continue to move away from restrictions.  However, please rest assured that we will continue to operate safely and in line with government guidance. 

As a Google for Education school, we will continue to utilise Google Workspace as a way of monitoring assignment tasks; including setting and submitting work via Google Classroom.  As a prerequisite to their learning, we ask that each student monitors this on a daily basis through the use of their unique school email address and password.  If a student has lost or forgotten their email or passwords, then they should contact their Director of Study who can reset these for them. 

As we start a new school year, our website will be undergoing some necessary updates, but it continues to hold a wealth of information for you about our school community and is worth a visit.  This is the ‘go to place’ for information that you will find helpful and where we will post emergency communications to you should this be required.  Please can I refer you to the policies section of this website, under the ‘About Us’ tab, where a number of our policies have been updated.  Can I draw your particular attention to the Online Safety Policy which has replaced the E-Safety Statement and asks parents to sign and return to the school the Online Safety Policy Agreement.

Thank you for your continued support of Beechwood School. I look forward to having opportunities to meet with you all in the course of this academic year.

Kind regards.

Anita Spires
