The power of thank you!
Without highly capable, committed and inspirational staff, Beaconsfield High would not be the remarkable school it is. We value each and every person who works here, regardless of their position within the school and are proud to offer the following Becky High staff benefits in addition to the benefits offered to all school staff further down the page.
Becky High Benefits
Every academic year you can choose to receive a Secret Buddy who you buy two gifts/pick-me-ups from a list of preferences and interests per term for (maximum of £5 per gift). In return another member does the same for you. You can also leave notes thanking your Secret Buddy on the staff noticeboard!
Christmas and end-of-year socials
The perfect opportunity to celebrate the end of the autumn term and the end of the school year! In the past we have enjoyed tea parties at Brasserie Blanc, The White Horse and The Beech House both in Beaconsfield!
Good Eggs and Christmas Stars
At the end of the autumn and spring term, staff are asked to nominate colleagues who they think gave gone the extra mile and deserve special recognition. These people receive a letter to say they have been nominated and may also win a little treat too! At Christmas, the Governors serve mulled wine and fizz at these events, in recognition of all the hard-work staff have put in the first term back.
Birthday Club / Cakes at Break
Who doesn't like to feel special on their birthday? If you join the Birthday Club, not only are you invited to share cake when there's a staff birthday, you also receive a card, flowers and cake on your own birthday too! Miss Short's Victoria Sponge with whipped cream is LEGENDARY!
Government approved additional non-inset ‘Academy Days’
These are non-working days in addition to inset days.
New staff ‘buddies’
When you join us, you will be given a buddy who will be your go-to person during your first couple of weeks, showing you important things like how to work the photocopier, the phone system, cafeteria protocol, where the toilets are and much more. You can ask them anything, ok almost anything!
Pearson Teacher Awards
Nominations take place during October - February, with finalists being announced in March.
Attend your child’s primary sports day
We know these almost always take place during the school day, but providing you notify your line manager, you are free to cheer on the egg and spoon race or even join in the parents' race on your child's big day.
In-house table football competition
Super competitive and fun at the same time. The staff room football table is always very popular.
Travel to exciting places
We offer a number of very exciting student trips both national and international, which staff are encouraged to join. Past trips have included the annual ski trip, plus trips to South Africa, the USA, Iceland, Dorset (!) and France.
Becky High Ramblers
Organised by Miss Ganachaud, these walks are a fantastic way to get to know other members of staff (and their dogs), stay fit and explore the local countryside. Oh, and the pub lunch at the end is a bonus!
No OFSTED until 2023!
An outstanding perk!
