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.

What a wonderful project! Proud to be implementing a creative curriculum @PeckoverPrimary with D&T at its heart and hoping we can inspire more children to want to get involved in great work like this in the future #community #ambitionforall https://t.co/gAQuKsHIIG

There was something special going on in Year 1 today. We had a visit from a royal and a very adventures knight. He brought a very heavy, hand-painted and beautifully engraved shield with him. He also read us a story before he went back on a search for a royal kiss. https://t.co/K39oxqQtD2
Year 2 had a wonderful time in the planetarium on Monday afternoon. Inside the planetarium, they learnt about the stars and planets. The pictures were hard to take as the planetarium filled the entire classroom! https://t.co/8jWobkdCkZ
@PeckoverPrimary real life experience makes learning and writing more meaningful. Overgrown, eerie, gloomy, mossy graves, twisted and tangled branches. The Year 1 children collected all these words and phrases during our walk to the "deep, dark forest". https://t.co/l5vMnl8jq6
