Welcome to Preshute Primary School

Our school motto reads: “Live Life, Love Learning”.

At Preshute Primary School, we offer the very best in primary education in a safe and stimulating environment, through a well-balanced, and creative curriculum, which is tailored to the needs of every child. Children work in a very caring and motivating school setting, and respond well to all aspects of school life. Christian principles underpin all that we do at Preshute Primary School. The Head teachers and staff endeavour to create an environment that is forward-thinking, and are quick to implement new strategies that can benefit the children. We are driven to help children to be good citizens of the future - fair, kind and resilient, to have a thirst for knowledge, and to embrace challenges.

The children are very much involved in the decision-making process of the school, and are proud of each other and our achievements. Preshute Primary School is very welcoming and always listens; please do feel free to come into school to discuss any aspect of your child's education with our staff and Head teachers. The website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we strive for and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

Thank you for your interest in our school. We look forward to developing a very positive and successful partnership with you.

Claire Hann-Perkins, Head Teacher
Peter McGuigan, Chair of Governors

Preshute sing "Yellow" for Children in Need

As part of Children in Need, Preshute pupils recorded their own cover version of the Coldplay song "Yellow". Deputy Head Teacher, Mrs Mundy reports:

"In our Celebration Assembly, we have been listening to various pieces of music. We had listened to Jodie Whittaker's version of "Yellow" on our Healthy Minds Day, and were then thrilled to find this had been chosen as the Children in Need single.
Class 5 and Mrs Mundy thought it would be a great idea for us to make our own version. Mr Veale, our amazing guitar teacher, kindly agreed to play for us and worked with a group of children to learn the piece; excellent work Harry, James and James. Mrs Croucher volunteered to play the piano ........ and Leo (Class 5) learnt the piece on the flute. WOW!!! Our lovely Choir were keen to take duet sections at the beginning, before we raised the roof as a whole school.
We hope you enjoy listening to our version of the song!! It is rather beautiful!!"
