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.
WORLD BOOK DAY- Beckley Day on 15th March!
Every year, World Book Day is a highlight on the school calendar. We love seeing the creative ways that the children and staff dress up as a character from a favourite book. Of course, when the national date for World Book Day was planned, the organisers would never have imagined that all the schools in England would have been open to only a few key worker and vulnerable children!
We didn’t want out children at Beckley to miss out on celebrating this day with all their class-buddies, and so we decided to move the date. At Beckley we celebrated World Book Day on MONDAY 15th MARCH. This allowed us all to take part together as a whole school, and it was fantastic to see some of the amazing costumes on the day – including a very scary Demon Headmaster!
COVID-19 Beckley School Update – March 2021
As part of the Government’s ‘roadmap to recovery’, they have outlined their plans for all pupils returning to school. You will have recently been emailed a letter from Mr Thurston explaining the routines and systems that are in operation now that the school has re-opened to all pupils. You can also read a copy of this letter by clicking on the link here:

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.

Here are some really great well-being activities to have a go at doing.
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.
