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.

" Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."
I am passionate about being headteacher at Berkswich CE Primary. Our school is a happy and thriving Church school, firmly rooted in our community. Supported by dedicated, highly skilled teaching staff and governors, there is an unwavering drive towards every child being a self-reflective caring individual who strives to be the best in all that they do.
We embrace mistakes as part of the learning process to ensure that children leave Berkswich as resilient learners who delight in life-long learning; preparing them for the ever changing world.
Our strong set of Christian values, alongside our drivers, underpin all aspects of school life.
We are committed to develop and deepen children's understanding of:
Community and Diversity
We believe that children should be thoughtful citizens who consider the needs of others, raising awareness through charity work, protecting and improving the environment and planning for their future careers and aspirations in later life.
We encourage children to explore beliefs which inform perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s feelings and values. Pupils have a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them, including the intangible. We see school as a place to develop imagination and embrace creativity for all children with a willingness to reflect on their experiences.
Our nurturing environment supports all aspects of a child's life. We promote ways to stay healthy through our vast range of sporting activties and through providing emotional support and well-being strategies to ensure the happiness and health of all of our children.
We encourage our children to be the leaders of the future who embrace challenge and demonstrate resilience in all aspects of life; developing initiative and tenacity through problem solving.
At Berkswich CE Primary School we recognise that every child is unique and cherished.
