Welcome to Preston Primary School, Eaglescliffe.

Our Mission Statement

At Preston Primary School we welcome every child.
Children are at the heart of our school and as such we provide a caring environment where everyone is special.
We nurture pupils to achieve fullness of life through discovering and developing their social skills, academic and wider talents and by putting before them challenging and realistic goals.
We attach a high priority to the strong links between school, home, Governors and the wider community.
We promote an attitude of mutual respect and responsibility within a welcoming, attractive and stimulating environment.

We welcome all children and celebrate our diversity. We aim to provide the best possible support to enable every child within the school to reach their potential, whatever their ability.

We are an ‘open school’, where you as parents are encouraged to support us as professionals in what we do and consequently make the school a happy and successful place for your child to flourish. As teachers we fundamentally believe that a supportive partnership between home and school will ensure the best rewards for your child’s future, both academically and socially, in an atmosphere of shared responsibility. We look forward to your child joining our school in the knowledge that they will be cared for and offered opportunities to develop their skills in a friendly, happy and educationally challenging atmosphere.

If there is anything you are unsure about then please don’t hesitate to ask either the head teacher or one of the teaching staff and we will do our best to help you. If you require further information, please contact us.
