Welcome to our Website

Welcome to our website. The Church plays an important role in the life of our school and our ethos reflects this connection. We want our school to be a learning community where everyone is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential in a caring and supportive learning environment. We believe that learning should be exciting. At times, learning may be hard work that needs persistence and determination but it should always be satisfying. Beverley Minster Primary School’s vision is that we give our children Foundations for Life.

We are a vibrant primary school with years of market town life and experience that gives the school its unique atmosphere and place in the community. Our children find themselves in a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. We are glad you are visiting our website and we hope you enjoy browsing to see all that we do at school.

What’s On The Menu

Our Lunchtime Food

School Dinners

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Premium Spends

Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
