About Beckley Church of England Primary School

There is something special about Beckley Church of England Primary School and I am extremely proud of our motivated children, supportive parents, devoted staff and forward thinking governors, who all work in partnership to make Beckley a safe, vibrant and happy place to learn.

The Christian value of Kindness permeates every aspect of school life and underpins who we are as a school (Ephesians 4:32). We have high expectations and our ethos both encourages and promotes an atmosphere where pupils can be themselves and achieve their very best.

Our children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they receive a rich and creative curriculum relevant to their individual learning needs.

If you would like to know more about our thriving community, please contact the school and I would be delighted to show you around and introduce you to everyone who makes Beckley such an extraordinary place.
