The school moved into new premises in September 2018. In September 2016, South Pennine Academies opened Beaumont Primary Academy as a free school.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is above the national average, although the proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan is below the national average. The school runs breakfast and after-school clubs.
