Who Are We?

Welcome to our school which is in the Great Barr area of Birmingham.

This is a happy school where children are at the heart of everything we do. Our motto is ‘we grow, we care, we learn, we share’, and this is exactly what happens here.

We are part of a campus of five schools and have close links with Perry Beeches Nursery, Beeches Junior, Arena Academy and also Priestley Smith School for the blind and partially sighted.

We believe in partnership and work closely with parents to achieve the best for our pupils; Aiming high at Beeches Infant School. Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum as well as to prepare children for their future by becoming independent learners. Our website gives you a wonderful insight into the work of our school, the learning that takes place, and the many opportunities that our children have available to them.

Our School Life

Our school motto is We Grow, We Care, We Learn, We Share. We believe that this ensures our children the best possible experience during their introduction to the education system, putting them first at all times and ensuring a positive learning environment for all.

Delivering an inspiring & thought-provoking curriculum is our passion. Our thought-provoking curriculum challenges our children in fun and innovative ways to ensure they enjoy their learning.

At Beeches Infants School, we are delighted to be classed as a Rights Respecting Gold School.

As a school, we believe creating a positive learning environment is vital maintaining pupil success. This positive environment creates high standards of learning, whilst also (and some say most importantly) ensuring school is fun!
