Erasmus +​​​​​​​

During the end of the last academic year, we put forward a bid to Erasmus+ for funding towards trips for small groups of children, accompanied by Beechfield staff, to visit European countries. We are very excited to announce that we have been awarded a budget of €197,563 to fully fund the trips - meaning there will be no cost to pupils or staff other than the purchase of a passport if necessary.

Erasmus + fund mobility projects for pupils and professionals, offering exciting opportunities for UK participants to gain valuable international experience, broaden horizons, experience new cultures and discover new ways of working. 

Our project links us with 5 other schools across European countries in Italy, Spain, Germany and Greece and Martinique. The theme of the project is ‘Cultural Exchanges – Your World, Our World, My World’ and our aim is for staff and children to learn about the cultural contributions each country has made to each other’s own culture. We will also be welcoming children and staff from these countries to Beechfield School in the Spring term 2020.

Across the two-year period, children from across the current Year 5 cohort and Beechfield School staff will have the fantastic opportunity to visit Italy, Spain, Germany and Greece, with no cost to the school community.
