Welcome to Prestbury Primary School

 

Let Your Light Shine that people may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven' (Matthew 5.v16)

It is my pleasure to give you a warm welcome to Prestbury Church of England Primary School. I have been headteacher at Prestbury CE Primary School for over 12 years and it continues to be a joy and privilege to serve and be part of such a special school community. As a parent to four children I know how important choosing the right school for your child is - each child is unique, with different gifts, talents and personality.

 As a church school we are focused on the whole child and acknowledge that academic achievement and attainment is very important, but it is not the only measure of how we perform as a school. Our mission statement, based on Matthew 5v16, 'Let your light shine that people may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.' ensures that we celebrate all 'good deeds' including academic and non-academic work and encourage the children and adults in our community to look to God to serve others. We are also passionate about being an inclusive school and recognise that children's talents lie in a range of areas, not all reflected in the school league tables and other data sources.

The school website and the link to our twitter page will give you an insight into what makes our school so special, but there is nothing quite like seeing the school in action and I would love to give you a personal tour of the school, with the opportunity for me to say a little bit more about our core values and for you to ask questions. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact the school office.

We continue to be annually assessed as Outstanding by Ofsted as part of an annual risk assessment, and again just like previous years Ofsted feel there is no reason to carry out an inspection of our school. However, Ofsted is not our driver, it is our core values and doing the best for all of the children in our care that spurs us on. We continue to do all that we can to provide the best education to support the development of the whole child, including academic progress and achievement, within in a strong Christian framework.

The school has a record of consistently high standards, reflecting the hard work by children, staff and the whole school community. I am pleased that Prestbury CE Primary School was graded as Outstanding in all areas in the most recent Inspection report (SIAMS). The report highlights, ‘An outstanding commitment to the development and well-being of every pupil underpins the school’s work and is rooted in Christian love.’ The report comments, ‘The school knows it pupils and their families extremely well and meets individual needs through a culture of Christian nurturing and caring. ’I am so pleased that the report captures our school, our values and our care for those within our community and beyond. We are thankful to God that our values can be celebrated, lifted high and have such a positive impact on the children and families in our care. 

The report reflects the contribution that all make in leading our school to be a special place. A copy of the report may be found in the School Information section > Ofsted/SIAMS
