Welcome to Becket Primary School

Our Vision:

We will develop the full potential of every child to thrive in a changing world.

To achieve this vision we will:


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.


Whatever the starting point of each child we will help them to grow and develop their skills academically and socially across a broad curriculum within a safe environment.


As they progress through school, pupils will become insightful, resilient and independent learners who are able to self-regulate their behaviour so they can maximise opportunities for learning


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.

We hope that this site helps you to understand what happens in Becket Primary School but if you have further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mrs Guest, Headteacher, is happy to deal with queries from parents and other members of the public. Please phone the school office to leave a message for her.
