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.

As a church school, we have a concern for the ‘wholeness’ of any individual or group who are involved in our school life. Mental and spiritual support and development is just as important to God as physical or educational support and development, and so should be to us. In all decisions and actions taken by the school, we strive to take into consideration the impact on the whole-being.
In addition to promoting positive mental health and well-being, we aim to recognise and respond to need as it arises. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective mental health and well-being policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for pupils affected both directly, and indirectly by mental health and well-being issues.
School staff may become aware of signs which could indicate a pupil may be experiencing mental health or emotional well-being issues. These warning signs are always taken seriously and staff observing any of these warning signs will communicate their concerns with Theresa Newman, our Mental Health and Emotional Well-being Lead.
