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.

Religious Education

**Page under construction**


At Berkswich CE, we believe that religious education (RE) plays an important role in defining the school’s distinctive Christian character. We believe that RE makes a unique contribution to the ethos of our school and is reflected in our motto, ‘Believe, Achieve and Care’. All members of Berkswich CE experience Christianity through the life of the school, as well as taught through the curriculum. The skills, values and attitudes developed in RE are at the heart of a cohesive community where the children are encouraged to have a positive sense of identity and belonging.


Year Two develop their understanding of the world while making prayer chains.


Year Three investigate art work that represented the Trinity. From this they are inspired to create their own stained glass windows.          


Exploring the outdoors, Year Four consider the preciousness of life and looking after creation. They look at diversity in the natural world and uniqueness in creation and think about how to demonstrate appreciation of this.



We enjoy welcoming visitors into school to help with our 'big questions'. Father Graham and Kevin Bales are regular visitors to our RE lessons.
