Our school is in the picturesque village of Beckley, nestling in the rolling 1066 countryside, 5½ miles northwest of the ancient Cinque Ports town of Rye in East Sussex.

COVID-19 Beckley School Update:
Being Back in School:
We have been delighted to see how well all of our children have settled back into the routine of school after so many months of being away from their class-mates and teachers.
As we see the constant changing of the situation across the country, there will still be many questions about the arrangements in school. Here is some information that we hope might help answer some of these questions and reassure both parents and children.
Here are two short documents with further information:
The first is a our Beckley School Risk Assessment and Government Guidelines – Oct 2020. We have taken all the Government guidelines issued to school and summarised them in this document, adding in specific details about how we will be following the guidelines at Beckley. We review our risk assessments every week to ensure that we remain compliant with the latest advice from the local and national authorities and advisory bodies.
In addition, here is a leaflet produced by the Department for Education, entitled ‘What Parents Need to Know’

Our Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing:
As we continue to manage social distancing and other restrictions in our lives, our mental health and emotional wellbeing is becoming an increasingly important issue for us all. The following links will take you to some excellent resources that the school recommend using to support this important area of our lives.

The Genesis Federation:
Beckley CE Primary School is part of The Genesis Federation with Peasmarsh CE Primary School. Our two schools still both maintain their unique identities, however our federation links allow staff to work together to support the teaching and learning in both schools by sharing resources, facilities and staff training opportunities, wherever appropriate.
Our Federation embraces the creation and development of ‘human flourishing’ through wisdom, hope, community and dignity. We nourish our community on a journey of spiritual, moral, physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth that helps everyone fulfil their potential through the promises and love of God. We work in harmony to promote ‘Life in all its fullness’.
Pupils, staff and parents are proud of their school and value the caring ethos. Pupils are polite, caring and respectful and get on very well with each other. They actively support each other’s learning. Staff are relentless and passionate in their desire to provide the best possible learning experiences and outcomes for their pupils. Parents and carers are very supportive and extremely positive about the school.
We maintain very close ties with the Church and local community and make full use of all local facilities to provide a high quality learning experience for all our pupils.
