Separate letter

 Letters will be available from the school office on Friday afternoon. I will inform the children in assembly so that they can bring the letters home.

Our new online payment is the preferred and easiest way to pay for clubs we will send you a link so that you can pay in this way. Please indicate this on the form below. 


As a new year starts, I write again to remind you of parking at both drop off and pick up times. Please park safely and that includes not parking on the zigzag lines outside the school. Stopping the flow of traffic can be dangerous too and this must be avoided at all times. May I also remind you that the village hall visitors need to be able to park on the village hall side of the car park too. We realise the situation is not ideal and as always our main concern is the children’s safety.

May I take this opportunity on behalf of myself and all the other staff to thank you for all the lovely gifts we received. 

I look forward to another exciting year at Preston full of enjoyment and success!

Kind Regards 

Mrs H Clements
