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
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.
Becky High Ramblers
Organised by Miss John, 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!
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!
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 celebrations at Brasserie Blanc, The White Horse and The Beech House!
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.
Government approved additional non-inset ‘Academy Days’
These are non-working days in addition to inset days.
Health Assured coverage
An employee assistance programme providing advice on a range of issues including family issues, gambling, drug and alcohol issues, domestic abuse, stress and anxiety, relationship advice, financial, tax and legal information and bereavement. Counselling is offered both in person and over the telephone. To log in click here. Full details on accessing this service can be found in the email sent out by Tina Bond in October.
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.
Every academic year you can choose to receive a Secret Buddy who you buy small gifts for from a list of preferences and interests, in return another member does the same for you. We recommend a spend of £5/ term, so you could buy 5 gifts costing £1, 2 for £2.50 or one gift for £5! You can also leave notes thanking your Secret Buddy on the staff noticeboard!
Staff Choir/ Staff Panto
The choir is led by singing teacher, Toby Stafford Allen, and meets every Wednesday lunchtimes (13:40 - 14:20 or an hour earlier during exam time). Everyone is welcome, you don't need to be the next Adele to join, it's simply an opportunity to come together with other members of staff and have FUN! The repertoire is diverse and includes canons in Latin, songs from Glee, Queen, S Club and much more.
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, Spain, France and....Dorset!
