Welcome to Preshute 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 teacher 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 teacher. 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.

Neil Baker, Head Teacher
Peter McGuigan, Chair of Governors

Crisp Packet Recycling

Please make sure you put your empty crisp packets into the special crisp recycling boxes at school. They will be sent off to Terracycle for recycling. If each of our (approximately) 200 pupils eats only one bag of crisps each week for a year, that's a staggering 10,000 empty crisp packets that we can avoid going into landfill. Thank you to all of you who are already embracing this pupil-let "green" initiative.
