Starting at Beckley School
Starting school is a very big step for every child. At Beckley School we work hard to make it a happy and fulfilling time. Full time education can begin at Beckley School at the start of the school year in September. Parents can defer entry if they wish until the term their child is five.
Parents have the option to take up full or part time places.
Parents of children who have not yet started school are very welcome to visit. Every opportunity of visiting classrooms to see children and teachers at work is offered. We aim to make visits as informative as possible and to answer any questions that you may have.
Beckley School is fully aware of the vital role that parents play in the education of their children.
To keep parents fully informed of the work covered by the children, a ‘Programme of Study’ is provided which identifies the knowledge and relevant skills that will be taught.
Throughout the school year opportunities are provided for parents to visit the school, both informally and formally. There are two ‘Open School’ evenings. These give parents the opportunity to discuss their child’s education and social development with their Class Teacher. Parents are given the dates of these evenings well in advance and adequate time is allocated to allow detailed discussion of the child’s progress. There is an open invitation to assemblies and other regular events that occur throughout the year.
The Headteacher and Staff are always happy to meet parents should they wish to discuss any particular aspect of their child’s education and progress through the school.
The School welcomes the help of parents and other adults with particular skills in all aspects of school life.
