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.

My Community


Community plays such a huge role at Berkswich and it is important that we know the different communities we below to and how we impact them. 

A Day in the Life of...


People helping us in the community are more important than ever at the moment. Many parents, family members and friends have jobs which are vital at the moment. Learn about some of the roles here and try some activities.

Changes in our Community


Over the last month, we have seen many changes in our community. This video helps us to think about how we deal with change. Watch the video and see if you can answer some the questions.

The Koala Who Could

A read along book about: Sometimes a little CHANGE can open your world to BIG possibilities.

  • What does ‘change’ mean? How can change be positive? When can it be negative?
  • Think of a time when something in your life changed. What was it? How did it affect you? How did you react?
  • Discuss strategies that we can use when something in life is changing. How can we help others when their life is changing?
  • Kevin is terribly good at three things: clinging, napping and munching on leaf-buns. What three things are you really good at? What skill do you need to improve?
  • Why is Kevin afraid of change? How did his friends help him?
  • What does this story teach us? What does it mean to have a ‘CAN-DO’ attitude? How could you use this in your own life?
