Bienvenue and Welcome to Becket Primary School. We are a friendly, single-form primary school which serves our local community in Worle. By visiting our website you are part of the Becket CREW, our school community built on our six Becket Values: Bravery, Excellence, Community, Kindness, Equality and Teamwork. We pride ourselves on the quality and warmth of relationships between children, staff and families. We firmly believe in supporting the whole family in order to get the best from every child, we have excellent family support and a pastoral care system which focuses on smaller family groups to nurture our school community. We have Community Crew which enables our children to learn together and develop their presentation and oracy skills; Crew Circles, which develop relationships and self-regulation in our children and Reading Crew where we celebrate books and reading together.
At Becket, we follow a Project-based learning approach where children learn for a real purpose, using real experts from the community and share their work with an authentic audience. In addition, our children work hard to re-draft their work so that it is excellent, giving high quality outcomes to all of their learning. We have just investigated the question: How can we make travel to school greener? Upper Key Stage 2 children started the project by redesigning and repainting the school bike shed to improve its appearance and encourage greater use. The children carried out surveys of transport in the local area and recorded and shared their data. Then, the children made reports to highlight the problem and wrote to the local council and local businesses to suggest changes that would increase the number of children walking, cycling, scooting or using park and stride in travelling to school. Our projects then conclude with an exhibition of our learning. Once we have returned to school after the current lockdown, the Mayor has kindly agreed to open our bikeshed as part of this celebration of our learning.
I invite you to explore our website and look at the Learning page to find out more about the other projects we have completed. If you are a prospective parent, I would invite you to arrange a visit to school via our school office so you can visit our vibrant school community. Finally, if you are a teacher looking for a new and exciting challenge in your career, please look out for vacancies on our About Us page.
