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 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.
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 365 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.
Although we have multiple and very important measures in place to minimise risk, our 'new normal' provides a very happy, creative and effective way for our pupils to make positive steps forward in their learning. Reconnecting with friends and the social side of life is incredibly important and is something that we continue to really focus on.
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 as a living document. In line with the government's road map, we will be ensuring that our procedures in school are in line.
Please also find supporting materials - Behaviour Policy COVID-19 Addendum, reviewed Safeguarding information, advice from the LA regarding 'Supporting vulnerable children', our School Recovery Plan, our Remote Learning Policy and a parent document released by the Department for Education. Our latest version of the Covid catch up funding document can be found here.

As you may know, we have now officially opened our community fridge for Deanshanger residents. The idea of the community fridge is to distribute surplus food to our neighbours to reduce food waste. We are proud as a primary school that we can help run this project with a food partner like the co-op and with the help of the Community Fridge Network.
The question is...are you a food hero? If you are, please visit the primary school and come and take some food that would be otherwise be thrown away. The food is for our community to share and used to help the environment and keep food wastage to a minimum. The Deanshanger Community Fridge is for everyone in the Deanshanger Community, please come and take some food and be a food hero:)
