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.

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
We are delighted to announce that in June 2017, our school’s commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education was recognised with the Silver School Games Mark, which is a Government-led award scheme. The external verifier informed us that our drive to constantly improving PE was rewarded with this award, gained just one year after the Bronze Award! Our aim for the academic year 2017-18 is to build on the advances and work towards the gold level.
The Silver Award recognises that all pupils participate in at least two hours of physical education and school sport per week inclusive of extra curriculum provision, and that at least 35% of our Year Three to Year Six pupils engage in extra-curricular sporting activities every week. It also acknowledges that all Key Stage Two boys and girls are provided with the opportunity to take part in the appropriate level of competition and at least 10% of our pupils are engaged in leading, managing and officiating School Games activities.
