Church Preen PTA are delighted to reveal that the Prosecco dinner dance raised an amazing £7,476.80.

We cannot thank everyone that supported the event enough! It is an absolutely phenomenal amount of money and will massively benefit the children of Church Preen primary school.

We could not have achieved this amount without the support of you, the parents and the local community and businesses. So thank you. Community spirit when planning these events is vital, and this shows that we have it in abundance.

The PTA also deserve a huge pat on the back, (glass of wine!) for putting together this event. It was a great night!

Thank you all!

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy remaining on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be
