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.

This week, Year 6 have been questioning whether the government enlisted effectively during WW2. They learned about political parties and compared manifestos from the 1935 and 2019 General Elections. They also took part in an army boot camp with real training drills from WW2. https://t.co/T86D4WA142
Year Five have been dissecting flowers this week and studying their different parts. The easiest parts to find were the petals, anthers and filaments. https://t.co/dOt2Dx3vZW
Yesterday, Year 4 learned all about Viking longships. We learned that they could hold up to 60 men at a time and were decorated with monstrous figureheads, which the Vikings believed would protect their ships during rough weather on the high seas. Check out this amazing work! https://t.co/9tEXz3BTDZ
