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.

What You Say About Us









Good morning Mrs Joint,


Thank you for taking the time to do this for Thomas.  He really appreciates this.


We are really proud of Thomas for doing his work at home, at present he’s doing really well and enjoying break times with Lily!


Thank you to you and Miss Hubbard for all the support and lessons it’s amazing.


Have a good day.






Mrs Wilkinson,

I just wanted to extend my thanks to you and all of the teachers at Berkswich.  What you are all doing to ensure the continuation of learning for the children is phenomenal.  You really are superstars.
I also want to personally thank you and Mrs Johnston with the extra work that you have put in with Beth... I cannot believe the difference in her ability and confidence (especially in maths) between the first lockdown and now.

Thank you so much

Dear Ms Jackson and all Staff

I thought I had to drop you an email to say a huge thank you for providing such a lovely, caring start to my grand daughters education.

Freya has settled into nursery life so well and is so happy and eager to share what’s happened at school.
Yesterday’s ‘sharing’ was so special I thought I should share with you.

I collected Freya yesterday and on the journey home she said- “nana do you know what day it is today?” I replied that yes I did, did she? And her answer, “ Today is ‘membrance’’ day and we have to remember everyone and these poppies help us do that”

For a four year old to have an understanding of Remembrance Day is wonderful and a credit to your teaching. So I felt I just had to say thank you to you all.


So on a thankful note I shall end and say thank you once again for giving a very proud nana a special memory!

Hi Mrs Wilkinson,


I just wanted to write a quick note to say how wonderful the video was.


It was so kind of you to let us incorporate it into our service of remembrance yesterday morning.


The children really were great and everyone commented on how they read and signed so beautifully.


Many of our service users were brought to tears and spoke about how lovely and how important it was seeing the children learning and understanding Remembrance, many also stated how optimistic seeing the children made them feel about the future.


On a personal note, it’s so lovely and reassuring knowing Ru is at such a great school.


Kindest Regards

Dear Ms Jackson,


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all of your team for doing such a wonderful job this half term. I know it won’t have been easy, but you have all kept on going and welcoming everyone into school with a smile every day. As always, you put the children’s well-being at the heart of all you do and we can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work.

I hope you manage to get a very well deserved break over half term.


Huge thanks to you all,

Emma firkins (Jamie’s mum)


Home Reading Success!

I just wanted to let you know as a parent what a great tool 'Myon is'. My son is lying on the settee listening to an audio book on Myon and following it on screen with his headphones on.

He's just said I've got my own Kindle now! He's delighted at this. And it's only cost me as a parent £5:00! Fantastic! The dictionary tool on it is great too!
Thank you for this.
One very happy parent.
