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

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 a little restricted at the moment in line with our risk assessment. For new parents considering our school for Reception 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. 


Managing risks

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. Any gaps in learning and additional needs have been identified, and additional support has been put in place. 

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. Our latest risk assessment is based on the DfE's - Schools COVID-19 operational guidance, January 2022.
