Welcome to Preshute School

We aim to provide memorable, pertinent learning experiences that are engaging and whet the appetite for further learning, which are enriching, purposeful and challenging helping to accelerate pupil progress and attainment.

Based on the values of love, compassion, kindness, openness and respect, our Christian principles underpin all that we do at Preshute Primary School. Our children are delightful and our community flourishes on the mutual respect we have for each other.

Please take some time to look at the myriad of activities and learning opportunities that our school offers.

Extreme Reading Challenge!

Dear Parents,

As part of World Book Day, there will be an exciting 'Extreme Reading' challenge!
The children are challenged to take a picture of themselves reading a book somewhere unexpected or interesting. If they bring in their photograph, they will be entered into a prize raffle to win a voucher for the White Horse Bookshop on Marlborough High Street! All photographs are due Monday 18th March 2019.
The photographs will be displayed in school and returned to the children before the end of the year.
If you have any issues, please come into school and ask your child's teacher.
Kind regards
Mrs Craven

Y6 French Cafe - Invitation to Year 6 Parents

Dear Y6 parents
Year 6 would like to invite all of you to our 'French Cafe' from 2.30pm onwards next Monday, the 18th March.
A wide selection of drinks and snacks will be available and you are invited to use our exchange bureau to swop £3 for 3 'euros' in order to pay for your refreshments!
Our excellent standards of food hygiene will of course be maintained and the children will be conversing in fluent(!) French as they escort you to your table, take your order and receive your payment. Please feel free to respond in French as well!
Any questions, please get in touch with Mrs Kennedy and hope to see you next Monday if possible.
Merci beaucoup!


As you are aware, the chicks have hatched! If anybody wants to 'home' any of them, please speak to Mrs Wing or Mrs Bennett before Weds next week, as they will be going back to the company who supplied them on Thursday 21 March.
