Preston Curriculum

Every Monday afternoon, the new Preston Curriculum is taught which encourages children to become more confident, independent and resilient as well as creative and critical thinkers as we feel that these skills will prepare the children for life in modern Britain.

The children have already carried out various fun activities including making pizzas blindfolded, planning a meal with leftover food and organising and performing a talent show!

Family Groups

Family-Groups

We are a family at Preston Primary School and to promote this we have special family groups.  Children from Reception through to Year Six have been placed into one of the following family groups:

  • Laburnum led by Mr Robinson
  • Laurel led by Mrs Coates and Mrs Doherty
  • Sycamore led by Miss Richardson
  • Oak led by Mrs Brown
  • Chestnut led by Mrs Robb and Mrs Foster
  • Elm led by Miss Chambers
  • Beech led by Mr Fawdon

On the first Monday afternoon of each month, the children meet in their family groups where they carry out various fun, educational activities.  It gives them the opportunity to work alongside children of various ages and promotes working as a team, discussion, thinking skills and good citizenship.

In September, the children met in their family groups and made pictures of themselves for a display in the hall.  It was a productive and rewarding afternoon where the older children helped the younger children to colour and assemble their little people.

At lunchtime, the children sit with their family groups which has encouraged new friendships and more varied conversations.

Family Points

Each day, the children can gain family points for their family which are tallied in their classrooms and collected and collated each Friday.  In Friday’s Celebration Assembly, the points are shared and the winning family gets a golden cup.  Family points are gained for good behaviour, kindness, being polite and courteous.

Your kind words

“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
You were both very understanding and I really do appreciate this. Thank you so much.
You all do fantastic jobs and I appreciate this.
Not only has he progressed academically, he has also gained more confidence and I would like to thank Mr Clift for playing an instrumental part in this.
Many thanks to all the staff at Preston, it is you who make us parents feel our children are happy and safe.
She has really enjoyed Year 3. We are really pleased with the progress she has made in many subjects – especially in maths.
I just wanted to say “well done” for this year’s year 6 sats results! They were amazing and I know that it would have taken sheer hard work from the children and teachers to enable your pupils to achieve with the unrealistic expectations set the Gove & Morgan camp.
Thank you for the report it was a pleasure to read and we greatly appreciate all that you done for her this year.
