We are a one form entry school, with our own nursery, located in Great
Preston. As a Church of England school, we have a strong Christian ethos
which gives our school a genuine ‘family feel’. We regularly visit St Mary
the Lesser church in nearby Allerton Bywater for church services and
welcome Rev. Bob Bailey into school weekly as part of our collective
worship. Our core school values are Compassion, Respect, Perseverance
and Thankfulness and these are very evident as you walk around school
and meet our wonderful children and staff.
We work closely with the Brigshaw Learning Partnership (BLP) Multi
Academy Trust, particularly in terms of school improvement. Staff at
Great Preston Primary school participate in regular professional
development meetings and training alongside BLP staff and senior leaders
work in partnership to offer peer support and challenge. Although this is a
partnership that we are incredibly proud of, we also receive ongoing
support from the local authority and Leeds Diocese which means we are
very well placed to support new staff.
