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.

We had the Year of the Flute performances this week, which were a wonderful experience for the children to hear professional musicians. The Y3/4 children then took part in a workshop in preparation for the concert at the Cheese and Grain on 26th March.


Our outdoor learning specialist has been to visit each school and meet the children she will be working with. Her sessions start on Wednesdays after half term with Basalt Class on Wednesday mornings and Robin Class on Wednesday afternoons.  Parents who have expressed an interest in helping during these sessions are very welcome, however they will need to be DBS checked for each school and we cannot accommodate younger siblings.


During our INSET day tomorrow, we are continuing to redesign our curriculum with a STEAM focus.

I hope you all have a relaxing half term break.
