Welcome to Bishops Cannings Church of England (Aided) Primary 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.  Please click here for a resource you may like to share with your child that covers the value of 'generosity' which we will be focussing on this term.

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 emailing us at admin@bishopscannings.wilts.sch.uk or use the contact the school form here.

Bishops Cannings Church of England (Aided) Primary School and Bishops Cannings Pre School wish to consult on their joint proposal to amalgamate school and pre-school into one organisation.

We believe an amalgamation would offer the following benefits:

  • -Management and leadership of both organisations will be streamlined into one organisation
  • -Opportunities for sharing best practice will be further increased and enhanced, particularly in relation to teaching and learning and safeguarding
  • -There will be greater opportunities for professional development of all staff
  • -Better transition for children of pre-school age into the reception year when they reach school age (i.e. the year in which they turn 5)
  • -Some economies of scale will be achieved through harmonising contracts for maintenance services, photocopying etc.

We are proposing to amalgamate both organisations in November 2017.

We would very much appreciate your feedback on our proposal and we welcome comments to consultation@bishopscannings.wilts.sch.uk or by mail to Consultation, Bishops Cannings Church of England (Aided) Primary School, The Street, Bishops Cannnings, Devizes, SN10 2LD by 30th September 2017.
