Our School

The school opened in January 1969 and was then named Wistaston Berkeley County Primary School. It was not until September 1999 that it was given its current name The Berkeley Primary School. The school is housed in a traditional style building with twelve permanent classrooms, two mobile classrooms and a central hall. One classroom, previously the quadrangle, is now designated the ICT Resource Room.

The school has the benefit of landscaped grounds and enjoys extensive playing field facilities. It is situated on the edge of open countryside and adjoins a residential area of wholly private housing.

The school has capacity for teaching 420 pupils, organised into fourteen classes. There are two classes to each of the seven years.

Our Vision

At The Berkeley Primary we will:

  • Offer a broad, well balanced, integrated curriculum in which knowledge learned is applied effectively.
  • Actively support all staff in professional development, promote teamwork and offer opportunities to gain competence in new developments, recognising individual successes.
  • Provide an enriched environment that embraces new technology where expectations of teachers and learners are high, and recognises that not all children learn in the same way.
  • Manage our budget flexibly and efficiently to offer the best all round provision we can.
  • Value and include parents and actively inform them in areas of their child's education


The Governing Body has responsibility for issues relating to the school premises, budget, personnel, curriculum and disciplinary procedures. The Governing Body has three major Sub-Committees:

  • Curriculum
  • Finance
  • House

In addition there are other Sub-Committees that deal with Pay and Conditions and Disciplinary measures.

The Governing body comprises 14 persons, including the headmaster Mr M. Finnigan. Staff, Teachers, Political parties, Parents and the community are all represented on the Governing Body. School governors hold office for four years and represent a wide range of interests

  • To provide guidance for teachers, parents and pupils.
  • To ensure consistency of practice throughout the school.
  • To improve the quality of learning offered to pupils.
  • To extend the Home/School Partnership
  • To ensure progression towards independent learning.
