Current News from Our School

School Welcome

Welcome to Bishops Cannings Church of England (Aided) Primary School and Pre-School. Our school is fiercely proud of its Christian heritage upon which we build high academic standards.

We take pride in the Church status of our school.  You will know from newsletters that we consider the Christian values that underpin our school in Collective Worship as an essential element of school life.  Our 6 Christian values are: Perseverance, Aspiration, Wisdom, Graciousness, Thankfulness and Generosity. The Christian Value we are focussing on this term is Graciousness.  Through our daily life at school and in our assemblies we highlight the importance of this value to our children and encourage everyone to show graciousness in everything they do.  

Please visit the Head Teacher's blog for more information on day to day life at Bishops Cannings School. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions and if you would like to visit our school and see our children engaged in their learning then please make an appointment by telephoning the school office on 01380 860633 or the pre-school office on 01380 860661 or by emailing us at admin@bishopscannings.wilts.sch.uk or use the contact the school form here.

Welcome Back to School

Autumn is always an exciting and busy time in the school calendar.  It heralds the start of the new school year when we always look forward to welcoming our new Reception class starting school for the very first time and also those children joining us after moving into the parish during the summer holidays.

Our nearest neighbours will know that the school has been a hub of activity over the summer break in preparation for the new term as we have had our long awaited new heating system installed.  Miles of copper piping and efficient new radiators now run throughout the school meaning that we will all be snug and warm instead of enduring either sauna or arctic conditions in the classrooms this winter.  We are also in the process of having our roof  repaired – parts of which dates back to the original build and has been causing us many a comedy moment with staff running around the building with buckets whenever we have a heavy downpour.

We welcome back ALL our children in their new class bubbles with social distancing measures continuing and plenty of hand washing and sanitizing in place, as well as staggered break times and our new “drop and go” transport arrangements at the beginning and end of the day.  Please do bear with us whilst this new system is introduced.

There is so much to look forward to this term.  The school will mark its 190th birthday this year and with new heating and a new roof we will be in good shape to celebrate!
