The Beacon Centre AEBSS (Alternative Education &Behaviour Support Service) is designated as a Pupil Referral Unit and as such is a short stay provision.  Therefore the curriculum information within this section, includes the breakdown of topics to be covered across the whole year and may not be covered during any particular pupils stay at the centre.

It must be noted that due to the size of the provision, pupils may be taught in mixed year group classes which may also influence the order in which topics are covered.  Also the lessons are fully differentiated to meet individual pupil’s needs and ensure progression
