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. 

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 374 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.

World Book Day 

This is the 23rd year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 6th March 2020, children of DPS will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Enjoy some images for the day by clicking on the link below.
