Welcome to our friendly school which is situated in the heart of the village of Beckington. We are situated opposite St George's Church and enjoy close relationships with our local community. The oldest part of our school was built in 1852 and has been extended over the years which included the addition in 2004 of offices, a staff room, a new Reception classroom and the school hall which is shared with St George's Church. This was opened on 20th July 2004 by HRH Princess Anne.
Message from Claire Chantler, Headteacher
At Beckington School staff, children, parents and governors are celebrating after receiving an outstanding Ofsted report. We are thrilled!
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 were pleased to celebrate our news with everyone at Beckington Village day on Saturday 27th September, where the children performed gymnastics and traditional maypole dancing.
We are proud of our school and would be happy to show prospective parents around. Please telephone the school to book an appointment.
