Welcome to Beckwithshaw Primary
Beckwithshaw is a small village school with a big heart. We have full wrap around care and our children believe in honesty, determination, respect, passion, self-belief and teamwork.
We believe learning should be enjoyed and our curriculum exciting. Our caring environment provides challenge in a safe environment to build resilience and self-esteem.
Come and visit us and meet our dedicated staff team and amazing, confident children. We all believe we are ‘Learning to learn…Learning for life.’
We federated with Kettlesing Felliscliffe Primary School in 2017 and this year we federated with Ripley Endowed CE School. Our sister schools share the same values and ethos as we do. At Kettlesing Felliscliffe they believe that ‘Together we LEARN' (Learning, Enjoyment, Respect, No Negativity) and at Ripley Endowed they Aim for the STARs (Share, Trust, Aspire, Respect).
We hope that you find everything you are looking for on our website. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have and if you require a paper copy of anything just ask Mrs Wood in the school office.
Thank you for visiting!
Lisa Jackson-Ward - Head Teacher
