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.

We are proud to be an inclusive school at Berkswich. Through our comprehensive approach to SEND, we strive to provide a secure, caring and happy environment in which all of our pupils can experience success and enjoyment of learning through our dynamic curriculum.
Our dedication to meet all children's individual needs helps us to maximise every child's inclusion in all aspects of school and community life. We believe in equal opportunities for all, where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and is valued equally. We value and honour the views of our pupils and their families and provide opportunities for them to influence change and to be fully involved in the decision-making process.
Our SENDCo, Mrs Andrews works together with our class teachers to provide support across the school. Mrs Andrews is also supported by our ELSA/Pastoral lead and other experienced support staff who work closely with some of our children.
