School profile

Beckley Church of England Primary School

Beckley C of E Primary School is a small, rural village school in a beautiful countryside setting. Beckley has been part of the River Learning Trust since 2018 and we work closely with other local RLT schools, as well as schools in the wider Wheatley Partnership. Our most recent Ofsted inspection graded us as 'good' in all areas and we are on a continued journey to improve our offer. We value striving for excellence in all things, and we achieve this through our school vision - Soar on Wings Like Eagles - and our values of Kindness, Courage and Responsibility.
We have five classes - Reception, Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4, Year 5, and Year 6. Our staff vary in experience from Early Career Teachers to Senior Leaders and we place great emphasis on developing staff in their chosen professional path. Our staff say that their well-being always feels like a priority in the school, and they feel supported, valued and happy at work. Visitors often comment on the warm, welcoming feeling of the school and the polite nature of our pupils.
