Welcome to our School
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.

Breakfast and After School Clubs
In order to help busy parents, we offer full wrap-around child care in the form of Breakfast and After School Clubs.
Breakfast Club runs every morning, with parents dropping off their children any time between 7:45 to 8:15am. Children have cereal and toast, and can also choose to do various art activities and social ise with friends. At 8:30am, they go to their classes for the formal start of the school day.
Our After School Club runs every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:30 – 5:30pm, providing after school care for children of working parents. We are delighted to see how happy the children are and asked them what they think of it. Here are some of their comments:
“I loved building a really tall tower with straws last week. After School Club is really fun, I like having a snack and a drink too.”
“My favourite thing in After School Club is all the drawing I can do with my friends.”
“I love being able to play games and also relax on the bean bags with my friends. I wish I could come every day!”
We usually have about 5/6 children on average every night after school – with several of them also attending Breakfast Club before school as well. If you would like to find out more information about either of these activities we offer to support childcare provision, please contact the school office.
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.
