Welcome to Our School

Welcome to Beresford Memorial CE First School website.

We are a friendly, welcoming Christian school committed to achieving together. The magic of Beresford lies in our exciting, inclusive, innovative learning opportunities which combined with high quality teaching provides a rewarding education for all our learners. Beresford Memorial School is enormously proud of being a distinctively Christian school in which we uphold a strong Christian ethos.  Our Christian Distinctiveness is present in all aspects of school life.

Our Christian Vision is lived out through our Christian values.



Our vision & motto alongside our values are exemplified through our school mission statement. We will:  

  • Teach our adults and children global awareness to respect people from all faiths and cultures in our diverse world, knowing that they have all been created in the image of God.
  • Encourage our adults and children to demonstrate British values to show kindness, to know they belong and are nurtured and loved.
  • Inspire our adults and children to be ambitious and show creativity in order to achieve their God given potential.
  • Provide possibilities and hope within our Christian family, by promoting a happy, safe and secure environment, which thrives on positivity and perseverance.
  • Model honesty that reflects our Christian character and provides children with principles that enable them to be a valued member of their community.
  • Show courage by promoting a culture of resilience, and social and emotional awareness inspired by a Growth Mindset.
  • Provoke enquiry by using the outdoors and the Forest school ethos to inspire, enable ideas, develop spirituality and encourage intrinsic motivation.
