Welcome to Becket Primary School
We will develop the full potential of every child to thrive in a changing world.
To achieve this vision we will:
Cherish: We value all members of our school community. We will treat every child as an individual and recognise that they are all starting their school life with different needs, cultures and attitudes.

Achieve: Working in partnership with parents/carers each child will make progress to achieve the highest level of understanding and skill of which they are capable.
