Beckley CE Primary School is a popular and successful village school with high standards of teaching & learning and behaviour. We have a strong community ethos and a lively and progressive approach to classroom practice.

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.

Beckley CE Primary School is formally federated 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.

The Genesis Federation:

We are very excited to launch our new Federation name and logo! We held a pupil competition across the Federation schools to come up with an idea for the new logo design, with the winning person spending a day at the design studio of a parent who is a graphic designer – turning their idea into a reality. This is the result:

The Governors have written to all parents, announcing the new Federation name and logo. They wrote:

‘We chose ‘The Genesis Federation’ as we felt it represented what the schools should signify to the children – the beginning of their lifetime learning journey. Hannah Tittle also presented the rainbow as a symbol of hope and promise which we felt represented our schools well. Finally, using a biblical reference to Genesis in the federation name was important to us as Church of England schools.’  The Genesis Federation Governors

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.
