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.

'Berkswich CE Primary is a thriving, forward-thinking community. Pupils, staff, parents and governors delight in life-long learning, discovery and faith, striving together to reach our God-given potential.'
At St Thomas' Church, the children take part in a Eucharist service during the Autumn and Spring terms. The whole school attend the church for a Harvest festival service in the Autumn term and at Christmas, there is a Christingle service for Year Three and Year Four and a Christmas Carol service for Year Five and Year Six. All children have the opportunity to take part in an Easter Celebration service each year and parents are always warmly invited to attend at these times.
St. Thomas' Church, Walton-on-the-Hill
It is important to us as a church school that we have strong links with the Christian community. We have an active partnership with Father Graham and St. Thomas’ Church, supported by Lichfield Diocese.
Father Graham, along with the support of Bob Gilson, takes a weekly assembly, leads our services in church and is regularly involved in RE lessons across school.
Berkswich Methodist Church, The Rise, Walton
We are also fortunate to have links with our local Methodist church. Kevin Bales, their school links worker, leads a fortnightly worship, contributes to the RE curriculum, supports with our drama club and runs Bible club.
