A Warm Welcome from the Chair of Governors

As Chair of Governors, I am delighted to welcome you to our school.

Here, at Preshute Primary School, we pride ourselves on a true ‘community spirit’ within our school.

From the moment that Reception pupils arrive at Preshute they are paired with a Year 6 ‘buddy’ – someone who is a familiar, smiling face in the corridors, in shared assemblies, in the playground and in the lunch hall: a true role model.

Our staff – from our senior leadership team and our class teachers through to our support and administrative staff – are professional, creative and motivated. They are a collegiate force that strives to ensure that each child reaches their full potential. We celebrate success – and efforts to succeed.

We continuously look at ways in which we can do things better as a school – and part of that process includes our ‘open door policy’, the annual parent and staff surveys, and the resulting School Development Plan prepared for the start of each new school year.

We are very grateful for the support of our parents and our parent association who selflessly work so hard with fund-raising for our school and further promoting that so-important sense of community. We are also extremely lucky to have many in the local community and at St George’s Church who involve themselves in the children’s learning and instilling good values. Some of these parents and local residents are also fellow governors – and I thank them personally for their invaluable input in supporting the school and helping it to continue to forge ahead.

Preshute provides a positive learning environment where children have the opportunity to achieve their potential in a welcoming, happy and creative setting.

Our school motto reads: “Live Life, Love Learning”. We stand by that absolutely.

Indeed, our intention is that every child will grow and thrive during their time at Preshute to achieve their best, and develop the skills required to take them through life as good citizens: – to be fair, kind and resilient, to have a thirst for knowledge, and to embrace challenges.

Yours sincerely

Rachelle Upton, Chair of Governors
