Welcome to Beckington Church of England First School

"Challenge. Exploration. Friendship."
Welcome to our school!  We are a small village church school, situated in the heart of the village of Beckington.
 We enjoy working closely with our partner school, Mells Church of England First School and have great relationships with our local community.
"Beckington CE First School acknowledges our duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children
and expect everyone to share this commitment."

Message from Claire Chantler, Headteacher

Welcome to our school website.  We hope you enjoy finding out more about our school. 

We know that Beckington School is a special place to learn and this was fully recognised by Ofsted.  “Relationships with pupils and adults are excellent. Pupils are uniformly polite and helpful.  The school is a happy and harmonious place to be.”

The children at Beckington School love learning and work hard to achieve their best. "Staff have consistently high expectations and skilfully enable pupils of all abilities to make excellent progress.”
“Attainment is high in all year groups.”
We value all areas of learning and staff were praised for using their expertise in different year groups, enabling all children to experience exceptional lessons in French, music, computing and gymnastics.
We are fortunate enough to be part of an amazing village, surrounded by people who are willing to give up their time to support us.  Our dedicated governing body were highly praised and our Chairman of governors would like to say thank-you to everyone involved in making Beckington Church of England First School such an outstanding place to be!
We are proud of our school and would be happy to show prospective parents around. Please telephone the school to book an appointment.

Friday 14th July
We have now reached the final week of this school year. It has been a busy year for all and much has been achieved, however, I think everyone is now ready for a holiday! 
This week some of our KS1 children had a taster session for Fun Trition. This was a practical session which involved children looking at the nutritional content of foods, including how much sugar they contain and also discussing the importance of sleep for healthy life styles. We will be looking to continue these sessions next year.
Well done to all our talented children for their performances this week and last. It is lovely to see what skills and talents children bring in from outside school as well as those we see in school. A group of Beckington children had an extra opportunity to share their performances when they visited the Day Centre at Lah’s Place in Beckington on Monday. The people there were very impressed with their entertainment!
Our Y4 children have had visits to their new schools, with a sports afternoon this week for those going to the middle schools. They have all grown in confidence and skills during their time at first school and it feels like they are ready for their next move. I wish them all well and hope they leave Beckington and Mells with fond memories. We look forward to hearing about their next successes! A reminder that all parents are welcome to the leavers assemblies on Friday – 9:30 for Beckington and 11:00 for Mells.
Finally, I wish you all happy and safe breaks over the summer and look forward to seeing you on 5th September.
