Welcome to Preston Primary and Nursery School
Our Vision and Ethos
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. Each school is different and unique in its own special way. At Preston Primary we have five golden threads that run through all we do as a school. These five elements are explained below, however if you would like to come and see what this looks like embedded within our school, please do make an appointment to come and look around. We look forward to welcoming you to a school that doesn’t just educate, it cares.
You will find a welcoming, caring and supportive environment where everyone is valued and appreciated.
We strongly believe in the development of the whole child. We encourage the children to discover their possibilities and fulfill their potential both academically and through the discovery and nurturing of their talents.
We teach the children through our Golden Rules about the responsibilities they have for themselves, each other and people in the wider world. These responsibilities are built on the firm foundations of mutual respect, the rule of law, democracy and individual liberty. These are modelled by all staff at Preston in all we do.
Partnership working, founded on a mutual respect permeates through everything we achieve as a school. We develop home school partnerships and community partnerships that ensure our children understand their place in the community and the wider world.
