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 20th October 2017
We had two lovely harvest services at our village churches. Thank-you for all the donations for the Frome Food Bank.
On Monday we had Balance-ability training at Beckington. This is about how to develop the children’s skills with the balance bikes. Miss Knight and Mr Shipway came away from the day with lots of new ideas. The programme is designed to help children in reception and Y1 gain the confidence and skills required to ride a pedal bike independently, getting them off to the best start in cycling and assisting their ability to participate in Bike-ability at a later stage in their school years.
Mells School had a very successful ‘bring a teddy to school day’ this week and have also made porridge, which finished off our learning around Goldilocks and the Three bears. 
Beckington have their Pumpkin Party today for which the children have made pumpkin soup, biscuits and bread and invited the parents.
The staff and governors are having their training day on Monday 30th October at Ammerdown Retreat Centre where we will be exploring spirituality, church school distinctiveness and general well-being.
The children have all worked very hard this half term and are now ready for a week’s break!  I hope you all have a relaxing week and we will see you on Tuesday 31st October.
