Welcome from the Head of School

On behalf of staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Prendergast Primary School.

I am very proud to have been Head of School at Prendergast Primary since September 2014. Our wonderful site is located next to Ladywell Fields and includes a purpose-built Primary building, as well as a stunning outdoor space which includes specifically designed play areas for Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Our pupils also have fun and learn in our Nature Reserve and multi-purpose games area. In our February 2019 Ofsted inspection our Early Years Provision gained an 'outstanding' judgement. We were particularly praised for the positive links that we make with our families, and this is something that we have continued to nurture, as we are all very well aware of the huge impact that this has on the success of our pupils. We are part of an 'all-through-school' with Secondary provision sited in a separate building. Our aim is also to provide an on-site Day Nursery provision so that we are able to support, educate and nurture families, children, young-people from 2 - 16 years old. As part of the Leathersellers Federation we are also fortunate to be affiliated with Prendergast School at Hilly Fields where Sixth Form provision is situated.

Since we started our journey to develop into a full two-form entry primary school, we have been overwhelmed with the very positive reaction we have received from new parents, children and visitors. Children are at the centre of everything we do at Prendergast Primary, and our aim is to provide a stimulating learning environment in which children are excited to learn and are given the confidence to achieve their potential. We foster strong links between home and school, actively encouraging parents to be closely involved in their child’s education. 

At Prendergast Primary we have a dedicated staff team who are committed to achieve the very best for each and every child within our care. Visits to the school are encouraged and welcomed – please contact our school office to arrange an appointment. 

I look forward to meeting you.
