Peckover is a large primary school in the heart of the thriving market town of Wisbech. We are lucky to have a diverse and vibrant community where everyone feels safe and special. It is a happy place to learn, where children, staff and parents are valued and welcome- a place where we all work together to achieve the best for each individual child. We are proud that OFSTED recognised this in our school: ‘Peckover provides a very caring and supportive environment for pupils and families, and plays an important part in the local community.’
We listen to children; they are fundamental to all we do in school. We value their input and want them to feel a part of making their school a better place.
We offer a creative curriculum, rich in memories and opportunities. We believe children learn best when they are given first hand experiences; why show a child a picture of a river in a book, when they could put on their wellies to explore? We give high priority to literacy and numeracy and will always strive to teach these in an innovative and exciting way. The arts and ICT are central to our ethos in enhancing our curriculum and children’s enjoyment of school.
In 2013 we took the exciting step to join the Brooke Weston Trust. This means that we benefit from being part of a larger and extremely successful academic organisation and having access to facilities and opportunities beyond a school’s normal scope.

Year 2 @PeckoverPrimary had an exciting day learning about circuits. They had been sent an investigative mission by Mr Grinling who had a break in the circuit at his lighthouse and needed help to work out which material would be the best conductor to help light up the bulb https://t.co/fQCLX0bd03

Year 2 @PeckoverPrimary have had a fun filled afternoon listening to and comparing modern and classical music before trying to make some of their own. We're looking forward to getting the instruments out again next week when we'll hopefully create a marching band. https://t.co/B85zWGLZw8
Year 5 @PeckoverPrimary were stranded on an island today and we had to use our @BearGrylls survival skills. We found out we can survive 3 hours without shelter; 3 days without water; and 3 weeks without food. So we decided shelters were a priority ! https://t.co/vuc1EBtxtz
Children @PeckoverPrimary responded rapidly this morning to clear a mole infestation announced by Mrs Norman in assembly. The children had to stamp and shout on the playground and listen carefully to check the moles were tunnelling in the right direction https://t.co/sPLhCUNgk0
