The sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away”, Captain Tom Moore

School life at Deanshanger has looked quite different for the last few months but we are thrilled to be back with all year groups again and running in a 'new normal' way. We have made lots of changes to school life to ensure that the risks for everyone in the school are minimised and to get back to what school life should be and closer to what it looked like before the lockdown in March.

Our full risk assessment for this time has been written and reviewed by all stakeholders. It will be under continued review as we move forward.

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 regret that visits to the school are very restricted at the moment in line with our risk assessment. For new parents considering our school for Foundation Stage though, please click here for an introduction to our school. 

Our pupils have a strong voice in the school - something that we are very proud of. Their latest 'School Charter' is on the 'Pupils as Leaders' page of the website. Please have a read as it will give you a real feeling of the type of school we are and what we believe in. 

We provide a rich diet of broad and authentic experiences to bring learning to life and to deliver the very best opportunities and experiences for our children, all 367 of them, both individually and collectively.  In line with government guidelines,  we are strong advocates of a broad and balanced curriculum in every year group. We encourage our children to exercise their 'can do' attitude each day in all subjects, to ensure that they constantly reach for the stars. With amazing children, dedicated and compassionate staff and governors, a very proactive PTA, a very strong community and strong links with other schools,  we are well placed for ongoing improvement and fun learning opportunities.
