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.

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember;
involve me and I’ll understand.”
Learning drives everything that we do at Berkswich. Our role, in partnership with parents, is to build the foundations for a successful education, to enable each child to discover the joy of learning, to help them to fulfil every aspect of their potential and to encourage their growth into effective citizens, ready to play their part in the world and their community.
We aim to achieve this through high standards of teaching within a happy, structured and caring environment. Whilst following the National Curriculum (2014), we ensure our children enjoy their learning by encouraging creativity and links across curriculum areas wherever possible. Through a rich and engaging curriculum, we hope to motivate our learners to accumulate skills for life: children are encouraged to learn through enquiry and curiosity, drawing on real-life experiences to develop their skills as well as their knowledge.
We believe the best way to understand what learning in school is like is to join the learning journey your children are taking. We run a number of workshops, where parents are invited to join the children in school. Please look out for details in our weekly newsletter.
