Welcome to Deanshanger Primary School.

We are an aspiring large village school, keen to reflect upon all aspects of school life to support a breadth of school improvement. Our aim for pupils is simple – to ensure that they achieve and exceed their potential and have a lot of fun along the way. We strive to ensure that every day is filled with happiness, laughter, support, encouragement, and progress. 

We believe in providing a rich diet of experiences to bring learning to life and to provide the very best opportunities and experiences for our children, all 390 + of them, both individually and collectively.  We encourage our children to exercise their 'can do' attitude each day, to ensure that they constantly reach for the stars. With amazing children, dedicated and compassionate staff and governors, a very proactive PTA and a very strong community, we are well placed for continued success.

A new kitchen at Deanshanger Primary School

One of our big projects this year alongside making progress in areas of school life will be to fundraise to allow us to build a new kitchen allowing us to provide high-quality delicious meals in a space that is fit for purpose.  Quite a tall order, but we are positive that working together, we can achieve this! Whereas in the past we served pre-prepared meals, we have moved a long way forward and are proud that we give our children that best lunches possible to set them up for optimum learning and healthy lifestyles in the future.  In all areas, our mission is simple - to be the very best that we can be!
