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.

Year Three and Four's Christingle service
The children re-told the story of Jesus’ birth whilst raising money for children less fortunate than themselves. The Children’s Society support the most vulnerable children; whether that be through mental health problems, trauma or exploitation. This service raised £157.59 in aid of this charity. Christingle means 'Christ Light' and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the "Light of the World". The children explained that the orange represents the world, the red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ and the sweets represent all of God’s creation and the four seasons.
Year Five and Six's Carol service
Years Five and Six delighted their congregation at St. Thomas’ Church. The Year Six children told the nativity story and read prayers of praise. The children sang a variety of Christmas carols which were heartfelt and meaningful. Well done, children! You sang like angels.
