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.

We've had a great day sharing our love for continuous provision in Year 1 with other practitioners. It was lovely to see people travelling from far and wide to join us. Here are some lovely comments from the day... 'A thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking day...' https://t.co/1axKg9hvYx
Year 2 have been learning about Guy Fawkes this week. They have produced some beautiful firework pictures to accompany the sequence of work. There are rumours that they may even get a visit from the man himself next week! https://t.co/4mKf3Cls8W
Yesterday Year5 started to investigate War Photographer by Carol Ann Duffy. We worked in groups to think about what is happening in the poem, how the photographer is feeling and looked for similarities and differences in each stanza #engaged #challenge #loveofliterature https://t.co/BXwqAgIIMe
@johntomsett @PeckoverPrimary Thanks John anything you have that could be appropriate for Year 5 would be gratefully received. I'm so excited about teaching this... The links that can be made from the poem are just amazing. Thanks for introducing me to it in your Masterclass last week
This blog is from a brilliant setting in our local area. They're a constant source of inspiration for me and a wonderful team of staff. #play #provision #Year1 @PeckoverPrimary @AgaSzostak @lucy_loo52 https://t.co/oQhf4OQ7DT
