Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Celebrating Achievement

Celebrating Reading in School

The children always have a certification level to work towards and, once achieved, they receive a certificate which is kept in their Reading Adventure books in school.


How else do we celebrate reading in school? 

We have a hall of fame for children who have read a million words or more and celebrate with children who make impressive progress in their understanding or time spent reading. These children are rewarded in assemblies and receive one of three available star tie pins. 


However, we also greatly value the contribution children make towards other children's reading. For example, there are amazing children in school who have managed not only to enhance their own reading, but inspire others. All the time, there are children raving about a certain book, talking to younger children in school about their reading and dedicating more time than ever before to becoming lost in a book. The list could go on and on...
