Welcome to Beckington Church of England First School. 

"The Best We Can Be​."

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

Claire ChantlerWelcome 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.

Miss Chantler's Blog:

This week we have been focusing on the Easter story. The children have been acting parts out and doing activities such as parading with the donkey and waving palm leaves in church (with Bert the donkey at Beckington and acted by Ragstone in Mells); learning about the Passover meal and Seder plate, with some tasting; a group of Y4 Owls acted out the Garden of Gethsemane, inspiring the children to paint images onto pebbles, and Wenlock Class dramatized the crucifixion in church. Two lovely church services which were well attended by parents – thank you!

Beckington School had a day at We are the Curious in Bristol yesterday and have returned to school today enthused about their fabulous experiences. It is a marvelous place full of hands on experiences which our children loved. They also enjoyed workshops for each class, which were challenging but very rewarding.

At Mells we had a delivery of 40 rounds of wood, which the children have enjoyed playing with, before they are sited into our developing forest school area on the field.

At Beckington we are looking forward to our new playground surfacing being done over the Easter break.

I hope you all have a well-deserved break over the Easter holiday and we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 23rd April.  This is the day after Easter Monday, which is Mells Daffodil Day – well worth a visit, Mells children will be singing outside the church at 11:00.
