Berwick Hills Primary is a happy, caring school, with relationships built on mutual respect. Our supportive pastoral systems help children to achieve their full potential and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world. Berwick Hills Primary children develop skills for lifelong learning. Achievement and a 'can do' attitude are at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning and showing that mistakes can be a learning opportunity.

At Berwick Hills Primary School, we aim to meet the individual educational needs of all children in order to enable them to meet their individual potential. We follow the Government’s Code of Practice on Special Educational Needs.
Special Educational Needs are the responsibility of all staff within school. With assistance from the LA, the school funds a number of teaching assistants who work with children either individually or in groups, to support learning in the classroom.
