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.

At Berkswich CE, we want all children to see that they have a part to play in challenging injustice around the world. Therefore, we are members of the Global Neighbours Scheme. This is an accredited resource developed by Christian Aid.

Having written our class Christmas cards to our link school in Germany - Evangelische Schule Walkendorf - we were amazed to receive our own Christmas cards back. This is a very exciting project for us, kindly organised by Father Graham.
Spain and Zimbabwe
We are embarking on a new project that involves linking with JIBC (Javea Intentaional Baptist Church) in Spain, to raise money and awareness for a charity in Zimbabwe.
Acacia is a non-profit charity working in Mazwi Village, Zimbabwe. It helps by assisting the community and children in all aspects of life. The young children attend the recently built, ECD (Early Child Development) centre, to get them ready for starting school. Children are sponsored to attend the ECD centre and then on to full time education. Without sponsorship the children of Mazwi village wouldn’t be able to attend school at all. The sponsorship provides, uniform, books, lunch etc.
Many of us take going to school, having three meals a day, clean water and basic hygiene for granted. Through this project, we aim to equip our children with the knowledge, skills and confidence to act against inequality and work towards a world free of poverty.
