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.

Children & Learning

Visits and Residentials

We enhance our curriculum with trips and in school visitors to stimulate learning and further embed the children’s understanding.

These are planned at the beginning of each term. Some trips and visitors take place as a WOW to kick start a Learning Challenge, whilst others take place at pertinent points in the learning sequence or near completion to support reflection of the learning that has taken place.

Places of Worship Visits

Our RE curriculum offers each year group (1—6) the opportunity to learn more about a world religion. Within each religion we provide a trip to the relevant place of worship within the local area. This is an integral aspect of our ‘Diversity’ and ‘ Community’ curriculum drivers.  It ensures that all pupils feel secure, valued and confident to talk about their beliefs and feelings and  understand that we are all different and this difference should be celebrated. Through visiting other places of worship in the community we are teaching trust, respect, honesty, communication, caring, common interests and shared values.

Residential Visits

Year 6 children have the opportunity to take part in a 3 day residential to an outdoor centre. This provides them with the opportunity to take part in experiences they might not have access to. It allows them to challenge themselves and connect with the outdoor world. As part of the Linking Schools project, we have also started a one-night Y4 residential that we hope to continue with the school we link with.




Our Local Heritage

All year groups have one Learning Challenge focussed around our local heritage, looking at the  significance of our surrounding community. This enables our children to gain an understanding of the local community and the diversity within it. When learning about their local heritage curriculum, children have the opportunity to visit key places within our local area.
